News & Interviews for Racing Stripes
Critic Reviews for Racing Stripes
Part earnest, old-fashioned melodrama, part wisecracking broad comedy, Racing Stripes is a film divided against itself.
A predictable but pleasant kids movie.
There's something oddly satisfying about seeing a notoriously disobedient wild animal like a zebra racing alongside horses.
Racing Stripes never pulls ahead of the pack, but it's good for a few laps around the track.
Um filme engraçadinho, sem dúvida, mas que nada mais é do que uma cópia pouco inspirada do encantador Babe - Um Porquinho Atrapalhado.
Audience Reviews for Racing Stripes
A terribly made film and a embarassment to all movies everywhere.
The combination of bright action, talking animals, exciting races and a comically pelican named Goose should make me laugh heaps better than grubby, bumbling flies Buzz and Scuzz. So cute, funny, heartwarming and a subtly surreal fantasy.
Racing Stripes is a pleasure to watch simply for its animal stunts. I suppose one can never get too old or intellectual to enjoy a dancing monkey, so to speak. There are a few instances of animal "stunts" being too dangerous for the animals - such as Stripes' wipeout, so these are animated with CGI, too, and they're integrated very well.
The animal computer effects are as good as they were in Babe; the quality photography shows off lots of animals, and the voice cast is studded with such stars as Frankie Muniz, Snoop Dogg, Dustin Hoffman, Whoopi Goldberg, Joe Pantoliano and Mandy Moore.
The movie is average.
It actually has some pretty funny parts at times and though it's for the kids and silly, adults may enjoy some of the hidden humor that the little ones may not pick up on. It's an inspirational story for children that offer's that little bit of faith needed for those who find themselves picked on or a bit different from the rest.... uniqueness is a good thing....
However, the same thing that makes it good is also it's flaw. We have seen this story told a hundred times. The under dog finds faith in friends and in himself and makes that last push to win the big...whatever... doesn't really matter if it's a Zebra or the million of other movies that features the same topic... it's all the same.
Overall: It's a good movie for children and it's a fun flick to watch as there is some creativty and comical parts too it but it's super predictable and not very original as far as the plot itself is concerned.
