    Frisky and funny enough to please pre-teens, but still witty enough to amuse even those parents who don't recognize Dustin Hoffman, Whoopi Goldberg and other notables among the unseen vocal talents.
  2. I groaned at cliches and grinned at jokes in roughly equal measure.
  3. No "Babe" but should delight youngsters, although parents likely will find it is sentimental in the extreme, with a plot that telegraphs every development.
  4. The movie, which is roughly as predictable as the attraction of flies to dung, is a hackneyed mix of sentimentality and anarchic comedy.
  5. A predictable but pleasant kids movie that veers between old-fashioned girl-and-her-horse sentiment and "Ren & Stimpy"-style poo jokes.

    A film divided against itself. Granted, neither part is particularly distinguished or appealing but the old-timey sports-movie elements at least possess a quaint charm. Unfortunately, that's wholly negated by the film's stumbling attempts at comic relief.
  7. Simply put, no matter what this zebra thinks of himself, Stripes is no thoroughbred.

    I think it's funny and you should never bully or exclude the different people, because you never know what kind of potential that they have.I think it's funny and you should never bully or exclude the different people, because you never know what kind of potential that they have.

    A good movie for first - second graders. While it is not four-star Disney stuff, it doesn't try to be -- it is happy to be about a zebra A good movie for first - second graders. While it is not four-star Disney stuff, it doesn't try to be -- it is happy to be about a zebra who wants to be a racing horse. My wife and I both remained seated throughout the movie -- which is unusual with kid movies of late. Pop some corn and enjoy! Expand
