YMMV / Racing Stripes

  • Cliché Storm: The film came out the exact same year as Herbie: Fully Loaded. Both films' plots are almost exactly the same, albeit one with horses and the other with cars.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Tucker, the wise Shetland pony is voiced by Dustin Hoffman. Three years later, Hoffman would voice another coach mentor figure—Master Shifu in Kung Fu Panda.
  • Special Effects Failure:
    • The flies look too cartoonish to be believed.
    • The horses in dialogue scenes were puppets, and several of the behind-the-scenes clips show shots that were cut for looking too fake.
