Played by: Dakota Fanning

A crying, screaming child is perhaps the most annoying thing to have to endure while at the movies. Well, if that logic applies to the audience, it should also apply to the film itself. In War of the Worlds, Dakota Fanning plays Rachel Ferrier, the daughter of Tom Cruise’s character, and basically all she does through the whole alien invasion pic is scream her pretty blonde head off.

To this day, we still don't understand how she didn't ruin her vocal chords with all of the shrieking she did. We understand that the Earth was under attack by aliens at the time, but even that doesn't justify the decibels this girl reached, especially at a time when hushing the fuck up to hide would be advisable.
