Plot: One mishap propels one overly ambitious but certainly under-qualified snail to join his lifelong dream – the Indy 500.
Can use a little bit of inspiration being an “inspirational underdog” film. It lacks originality but is fun to watch nonetheless. It suffers though in the box-office and costed Dreamworks Animation a lot. This is probably due to the seemingly unoriginal plot and the viewers usually will get the ending right at their first guess. As it should be given that it targets the kids demo . It failed because there’s not enough to get it going through word-of-mouth.
