Adults will find Stripes tolerable at best, and the youngsters will probably show little more enthusiasm.

Racing Stripes is pretty standard family fare without too many charming moments.

If you want a positive reaction to your film, don't put farting animals in it.

IGN Movies

A sweet, heartfelt, and sometimes clever film whose reticence to maintain a consistent tone automatically condemns it to life as a scattershot novelty.

Don’t mistake desperation for creativity...Racing Stripes is simply an abomination.

Almost everyone in this has done better, and those who haven't, like young Ms. Panettiere, have plenty of time to do so.

Young children may be mildly entertained by this familiar story, but for anyone over the age of 10 the film contains few surprises and even fewer laughs.

Racing Stripes is not terrible, but there's an irksome sense its creators think details don't matter because kids won't notice them.

What kills this charmless Babe knockoff is the crude humor, along with the hamfisted way [it] puts inane dialogue and movie-star voices in the [animals'] mouths.
