The imaginative producers at the Jim Henson Company update the age-old story of The Tortoise and the Hare in this award winning animated adventure featuring the voices of Jay Leno, Danny Glover, Vivica A. Fox, and Keke Palmer. With his "slow and steady" philosophy, Mr. Tortoise may have crossed the finish line first in their initial race, but now Mr. Hare has demanded a rematch and he's not about to make the same mistakes twice.

Audience Reviews for Tortoise vs. Hare


An animated film about the rematch of the famous race between the tortoise and the hare. I didn't like it much, and the fact that some of the characters were played by Danny Glover or Jay Leno did not help.

It's a fairly entertaining and inoffensive piece. The animation is of very low caliber and so on a visual level, it fails miserably. The idea is a good one but it mostly recycles ideas from the fable itself. It's nowhere near as cutting as it should/could have been. The vocal talents add most of the life that this film squeezes out but it eventually plods to a complete standstill.
