Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Part earnest, old-fashioned melodrama, part wisecracking broad comedy, Racing Stripes is a film divided against itself."
‑ Nathan Rabin, AV Club
"There's much to laud in Racing Stripes."
‑ Susan Walker, Toronto Star
"Best live-action talking animal movie since Babe."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Um filme engraçadinho, sem dúvida, mas que nada mais é do que uma cópia pouco inspirada do encantador Babe - Um Porquinho Atrapalhado."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"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."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"A predictable but pleasant kids movie."
‑ Russell Scott Smith, New York Post
"Bland but likable kids' movie."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"There's something oddly satisfying about seeing a notoriously disobedient wild animal like a zebra racing alongside horses."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"That it is familiar and predictable is a given, but nevertheless Racing Stripes is an enjoyable film."
‑ Bill Clark, FromTheBalcony
"Racing Stripes follows a story arc similar to Babe, but it possesses none of the warmth, humor, or originality of that film."
‑ Mark Pfeiffer, Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema
"Almost everyone in this has done better, and those who haven't, like young Ms. Panettiere, have plenty of time to do so."
‑ Mike Clark, USA Today
"Offers enjoyable moments."
‑ Carla Meyer, San Francisco Chronicle
"Racing Stripes never pulls ahead of the pack, but it's good for a few laps around the track."
‑ Peter T. Chattaway, Christianity Today
"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."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"A breezy caper that will entertain children without testing their parents' patience."
‑ Neil Smith,
