10/6/2006 by Nathan RabinPart earnest, old-fashioned melodrama, part wisecracking broad comedy, Racing Stripes is a film divided against itself.
New York Post
1/24/2005 by Russell Scott SmithA predictable but pleasant kids movie.
1/14/2005 by Mike ClarkAlmost everyone in this has done better, and those who haven't, like young Ms. Panettiere, have plenty of time to do so.
1/14/2005 by Susan WalkerThere's much to laud in Racing Stripes.
1/14/2005 by Moira MacDonaldBland but likable kids' movie.
San Francisco Chronicle
1/14/2005 by Carla MeyerOffers enjoyable moments.
1/14/2005 by Roger MooreIt stumbles right out of the gate.
1/14/2005 by Stephen WhittyThe humor never rises very far above the barnyard.
New York Daily News
1/14/2005 by Elizabeth WeitzmanThe special effects here are surprisingly smooth, and everyone seems to be having fun.
Globe and Mail
1/14/2005 by Liam LaceyA hackneyed mix of sentimentality and anarchic comedy.
Detroit Free Press
1/14/2005 by John MonaghanEven by the dubious standards of talking animal movies, this one is routine.
1/14/2005 by Lisa KennedyRacing Stripes is hardly a Triple Crown winner. But for a Saturday afternoon with the kids, it's a safe bet.
1/14/2005 by Roger EbertThis is the kind of movie you might grab at the video store, but it's not worth the trip to the theater.
1/14/2005 by Ty BurrSimultaneously overplotted and simplistic, the new barnyard/racecourse comedy from Warner Brothers is predictable every step of the way, and it contains at least three too many poop jokes.

1/14/2005 by Scott Von DoviakA veritable barnyard full of guest celebrity voices, doing their best to liven up a mediocre Babe wannabe.
Los Angeles Times
1/13/2005 by Kevin ThomasShould delight youngsters, although parents likely will find it is sentimental in the extreme, with a plot that telegraphs every development.
1/13/2005 by Desson ThomsonAlthough this film about a zebra who aspires to win horse races has a marvelous premise, it slows to a mediocre canter right out of the starting gate.
New York Times
1/13/2005 by Dana StevensRacing Stripes is unlikely to ascend to the pantheon of perennially watchable children's films, but like its hero, what it lacks in skill, it makes up for in heart.
Dallas Morning News
1/13/2005 by Nancy ChurninSetting up a race in which you root for the misfit is the 'oldest trick in the book,' to quote a phrase Tucker the horse likes to use in Racing Stripes. But as Tucker adds: 'Works every time.' That it does.
1/13/2005 by Randy CordovaIt's all familiar and unsurprising, but not without its modest pleasures.
