Rally Road Racers - Movie Review

Rally Road Racers zooms into theaters on May 12, 2023 with charm, action, and fun the whole family can enjoy!  While some may feel that Rally Road Racers tells a story that feels familiar as the underdog (or under-loris in this case) main character goes up against the bad guy to save the day for his family and village, it's humor and feel good script is something every parent can feel good about sharing with their child and kids will enjoy the animated adventures of the main characters.

This is a sponsored post and as such, I received compensation for writing my review.  As always, the thoughts here are my honest opinions!

Rally Road Racers, from Viva Kids, tells the story of Zhi, a loris who wants desperately to be a racer, but his dream isn't supported by his grandmother who is caring for him after his mother's passing.  When a toad-ally (see what I did there!) big, bad developer threatens to take over the property of everyone in Slow Loris Village to build a new luxury community, Muddy Meadows, Zhi places a bet that he can beat the developer, Archie VanGlorious, who also happens to be a word champion racer.  The race?  None other than the Silk Road Rally - a 4 day marathon of a race across China.  

Zhi follows the typical character arc that we see in kids films like this - working hard to get ready to race, making tough choices along the way which ultimately show his kind character, and hitting a bump in the road (so to speak) towards the end of the race which will test his ability to finish strong.  Will he ultimately persevere and save the day?  No spoilers here. . .but I bet you can take a guess!

While there are many feel good moments and laughs throughout the film, the most memorable wisdom drops are given by my favorite character, Nash.  Nash is a goat who helps Zhi before and during the race - and has a surprising connection to Zhi's family revealed later in the movie.  Here's just a sampling of the best quotes from Nash:

  • "The heart of a champion beats in all of us, kid."
  • "Cars don't win races, drivers do."
  • "Appearance is an illusion; it's what is inside that counts."
  • "Winners are always winning, even when they're losing."

Rally Road Racers has certainly found its way to the winner's circle of good family fun at the theaters.   As a parent, Rally Road Racers delivers on wholesome fun that you can enjoy with even the youngest members of your family.  Zoom into theaters May 12 to catch Rally Road Racers!
