Critics Consensus: Racing Stripes might be good for a few laps with younger viewers, but it's too blandly predictable to truly recommend for an all-ages audience.

Live-action talking-animal movie has lots of potty humor.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Racing Stripes is a 2005 comedy in which a zebra raised on a farm in Kentucky wants to be the fastest on the racetrack against snobby thoroughbreds. There's quite a bit of humor involving defecation, urination, and flatulence. Profanity -- "s--t," "bitch," and "ass" -- is not quite said by characters in some scenes, but is strongly implied. There's some double entendre with words like "pecker," and when a female horse trots by, one of the male horses remarks, "Look at those flanks." Two flies eat horse excrement, and one of the flies urinates in a man's cup of espresso. A flying goose tries to defecate on the head of the antagonist. The movie also talks of how the mother of the lead teen girl died while horseracing. While there's an overall message of "It's OK to be different," that message is often drowned out by the potty humor on display throughout the movie.
