Delightful family comedy about an underdog zebra (voiced by Frankie Muniz) who grows up believing that he is a racehorse and proves he has the heart of a champion by finding his inner thoroughbred and -- with a little help from a former horse trainer (Bruce Greenwood), his young daughter (Hayden Panettierre) and some barnyard buddies (voiced by Whoopi Goldberg and Dustin Hoffman, among others) -- competing for top racing honors in a prestigious derby. Directed by Frederik Du Chau, this lively crowd-pleaser combines live action and computer-generated talking animal effects -- think "Seabiscuit" meets "Babe" -- and imparts a charming feel-good message about acceptance and overcoming challenges by believing in yourself. Ethnic stereotyping and some mildly crude language and humor. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested.
