Trivia

Reggie (Jeff Foxworthy) states "If you build it, they will come" while standing in the corn field. This alludes to Field of Dreams (1989), in which the main character chases a dream that no one believes in, same as Stripes is chasing his dream to race. The actual quote from Field of Dreams (1989) is, "If you build it, he will come." See more »

Light hearted film that your children will like
10 January 2005 | by the-movie-guySee all my reviews

A baby zebra (voice of Frankie Muniz) is accidentally left behind by a traveling circus and is found by a thoroughbred horse trainer, Nolan Walsh (Bruce Greenwood). Nolan takes the zebra home, and his teenage daughter Channing (Hayden Panettiere) wants to keep him as a pet. She names the baby zebra Stripes. The farm is located near the racetrack and the zebra grows up believing that he is a racehorse. Stripes has a dream of racing the other horses at the track, and to get into shape, Stripes races the mailman in his truck. All the farm animals help Stripes and Channing achieve their racing dream. This is a cute movie made in the same framework as the movie 'Babe', where all the animals speak to each other. The horseflies Scuzz and Buzz (voices of David Spade and Steve Harvey) had some of the funniest scenes. This is a light hearted film that your children will like. Don't take the script too seriously or you will miss the fun. (Warner Brothers Pictures, Run time 1:34, Rated PG) (4/10)
