Racing Stripes
Babe meets the ugly Duckling in this animated family caper about a talking zebra's bid for acceptance.

Plot
Stripes the baby zebra (voiced by Muniz) is accidentally left behind by the circus and adopted by a widower farmer (Greenwood) and his daughter (Panettiere). Growing up, Stripes longs to race like his neighbouring horses and finds his way onto the track.


Verdict
If this film were as good at manipulation as its animal characters, it'd be more than just burping zebras and shit-eating flies. Sadly it's not.
