There's something oddly satisfying about seeing a notoriously disobedient wild animal like a zebra racing alongside horses.

Part earnest, old-fashioned melodrama, part wisecracking broad comedy, Racing Stripes is a film divided against itself.

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.

That it is familiar and predictable is a given, but nevertheless Racing Stripes is an enjoyable film.

I have no doubt that Racing Stripes will be a solid hit with younger kids. But adults watching it with them may want to bring along a good book.

I suppose you have to expect barnyard humor in a film which takes place in a barnyard, but I longed for something more clever and less crude.

Racing Stripes follows a story arc similar to Babe, but it possesses none of the warmth, humor, or originality of that film.

A breezy caper that will entertain children without testing their parents' patience.

This is a nice movie that should entertain the kids and adults won't mind either.

If in the world of talking animal movies Babe is a 10, Racing Stripes scores a 6.5.

... the screenplay is a little unfocused in places - for example, a love interest sub-plot gets dropped pretty quickly, presumably because onscreen horse-zebra love might provoke some awkward questions.

The only thing that keeps us engaged is the cute factor.

Truly all-ages appeal is nowhere in evidence as director Frederik DuChau is all too eager to sink to cheap juvenalia.

I'm not against the idea of a talking zebra in and of itself, but this movie containing said articulate quadruped is decidedly bad.

I can't remember the last time I gave a movie an extra half star because the animal lead is so cute.
