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 »

Goofs

After Channing got out of the car after arguing with her dad, she clicks to Stripes who makes a cantering hoofbeat sound, but when viewed, Stripes is still trotting, then canters. See more »

Quotes

Reggie: I see buckets of dead relatives! Extra crispy! Extra crispy!

Outstanding Movie, not another Knock-off
9 January 2005 | by yourc21rl8rSee all my reviews

Not sure what those others are seeing or looking for in a movie... This is one of the best movies i have taken my two 12 year old's to in a long time. This movie was hilarious, it had jokes for all ages. At times you would hear the kids start laughing through the theater, but there were several time when the adults would start out the laughing. I laughed through the entire movie. My daughters have seen all of the other movies that this one is supposed to be copying, but (according to them) this is by far the best. This one will definitely be added to our DVD collection as soon as it become available!! Highly recommend this one for the whole family!!!
