Just when you start thinking they don't make movies like this anymore, they go and make one. Racing Stripes is not only one of the best films of its kind, it's one of the best movies I've seen in the past few years. Animal movies always get to me; they suck me in emotionally more than any other kind of story. You may well shed tears of both happiness and sadness as you watch this film, but I can pretty much guarantee you'll laugh and be thoroughly entertained - and more than ready to go back and watch it all again as soon as you reach the end. This is an inspirational film full of the kinds of truths kids need to learn and adults need to remember. It may well be the best family-friendly movie thus far of the new century. The keys to its success are a great story, a great cast of both animals and humans, and an indomitable spirit that few movies can convey over the course of 103 minutes.

It's a sad beginning, as we see a young zebra accidentally left behind by a circus on a road in Kentucky; luckily, Nolan Walsh (Bruce Greenwood) finds the little guy and takes him home to his farm - where his daughter Channing (Hayden Panettiere) instantly falls in love with him and names him - what else? - Stripes. Stripes is also welcomed by the other animals on the farm - and it is here we learn that these animals can talk. Talking animals is a bigger risk than you might think - it can easily flop if done poorly, but there are no worries here: the cast of voice actors is superb. Dustin Hoffman plays a miniature horse named Tucker, Whoopi Goldberg is Franny the goat, Jeff Foxworthy is good for many laughs as Reggie the rooster, and the list goes on. The farm lies adjacent to a horse track, and Stripes immediately decides he is a race horse - no one tells him he's a zebra.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute, But Not Gritty February 6, 2005
After the crystalline purity of -Million Dollar Baby-, my Hubby & i *needed* a break from Reality. -Racing Stripes- delivers in stripes - er, spades.

The real stars of this film aren't Whoopi Goldberg, Frankie Munitz, Dustin Hoffman, Jeff Foxworthy, Michal Clark Duncan, & all the vocal talent; it's the *way* those massive talents are used. From the start, when a zebra colt is accidentally abandoned & adopted by a racer-trainer-turned-farmer [Bruce Greenwood, 1ce a nasty intern in -St. Elsewhere-] & his daughter Channing, the story is a sweet [but, thank the gods, not *quite* saccharine] tale of a zebra [named Stripes, of course] who grows up to become a racer, to the chagrin of all the 'real', snooty keep-*It*-out-of-*my*-race horses. The CGI are flawless, esp. in the race at the end [sorry Channing, zebras can't run the gruelling full course of a race track!] & the loving support of all Stripes' farm buddies believable ... in fact, this 1 is *better* than -Babe- due to the improvements of CGI.
As Donald remarked at the end, "Ain't Macs wunnerful?" This film also features sweetly-effective Hayden Panettiere as Channing, the perky/pretty/gallant girl who Believes in Stripes. Plus, South Africa makes a *terrific* Kentucky ... speaking as a former Hoosier who still loves/remembers the achingly green purity of that more-Southern-than state.

& also "What a *great* change. A real relief!" For those who believe in the Dream = Winning ... & even those who don't, this is a win in less than 2 hours.

5.0 out of 5 stars David Spade steals the movie January 16, 2005
A good movie for all ages. It is a good lesson movie for our kiddies. It teaches them that if they really want something they have to work hard for it. There are also some good lessons teaching-- we are all different and not to judge someone by their appearance. There is major star power, but Spade is the funniest.

I recommend this movie.

By A. Ryan

You know those cutesy pet commercials with talking animals that have the rather bad CGI moving mouths? That's what I thought the kids and I were in for.-mistakenly, as it turned out. What a pleasant surprise that Racing Stripes proved to be top family entertainment.

Racing Stripes is about a zebra who was lost from a traveling circus as a foal, then rescued by a racehorse-trainer-turned-farmer and his daughter, Channing. They raise him with their other barnyard animals, within clear sight of the thoroughbred farm next door. Stripes grows up dreaming about becoming a race horse, much to the snickering delight of the farm. But some of the other animals encourage him to go for his dreams, even dig up some surprisingly effective training skills to help him out. Through a series of carefully planned manipulations, the barnyard conspires to get the humans to enter Stripes in the big race with Channing as his jockey. The odds are against him, he is often ridiculed about his lack of size and funny appearance, but the plucky zebra proves in the end that taking risks for what's important to you is what makes you a winner.

This movie plot is predictable and formulaic, standard "talking animal" fare - so what? It's visuals are done seamlessly and beautifully. The messages about working hard to achieve your goals, having a good attitude and not giving up when things get tough are very timely for this generation. There is some guilty pleasure in the running gags which involve some potty humor, even for an adult (but I won't admit this to my husband!). I liked all the human actors as much as the charming animals; even the villainess is a personal favorite from her previous roles on television. Most importantly, it was a feel good story that the * kids* loved.
