Racing Stripes

Dustin Hoffman, Whoopi Goldberg, Joe Pantoliano, Jeff Foxworthy, Snoop Dogg, David Spade, Steve Harvey, and Fred Dalton Thompson provide the voices for wisecracking animals in this dumb but harmless live-action comedy for kids. A zebra left behind by a traveling circus is adopted by a thoroughbred horse trainer (Bruce Greenwood) and his preteen daughter (Hayden Panettiere), who takes a shine to the little fella (voice of Frankie Muniz) and trains him to run races. The jokes are pretty weak (as a wiseguy pelican, Pantoliano dispenses every Mafia-movie catchphrase you never want to hear again), and there's a cliched backstory about the girl's mother having died in a fall from a horse. The ever-reliable Greenwood acts up a storm, perhaps unaware that he's in a talking-zebra movie. PG, 94 min.
