Storyline

Maggie Peyton is the new owner of Number 53--the free wheelin' Volkswagen bug with a mind of its own; she puts the car through its paces on the road to becoming a NASCAR competitor. As a third generation member of a NASCAR family, racing is in Maggie Peyton's blood, but she is forbidden from pursuing her dream by her overprotective father, Ray Peyton, Sr. When Ray Sr. offers Maggie a car as a college graduation present, he takes her to a junkyard to choose one from an assortment of very used cars. Maggie has her eye on an old Nissan, but a certain rusty, banged up '63 VW Bug seems to be clamoring for her attention. To her surprise, Maggie leaves the lot with Herbie. As she prepares to leave town for a position with ESPN News, Maggie discovers that Herbie has a mind of his own--and an alternate route for her future. Written by gavin (gunmasterM@hotmail.com)

Trivia

The original script was green-lit largely because the studio liked its decisions to A) place the Herbie character into a realistic world and B) make Herbie's powers subtle, and presented in small increments. Later script revisions ended up presenting a more cartoonish and fantasy-based world. See more »

Goofs

The first time we see Herbie at the California speedway boxes, when he is taken out the truck, he wears two stickers in the front side of the front mudguards near the headlights. In the following scenes and the race, the stickers are in the back side of the front mudguards. See more »

Quotes

Crash: I didn't do that. It was the car.
Maggie Peyton: His name is Herbie.
Crash: That's a ridiculous na...
[as Crash almost said 'name', Herbie's seat ejected and ridded Crash, for his remark. Crash landed into a crowd]

Harmless, but formulaic
25 July 2005 | by crazychapSee all my reviews

It's been about 25 years since the Volkswagen Herbie-- a.k.a the Love Bug-- has stepped out of the race after a string of losses and practically ended up in one junkyard after another, piling up dust over the years. Lindsay Lohan plays Maggie Peyton, daughter of a widowed former sports-car great Ray Peyton Sr., who is given to choose a new car for her college graduation. She ends up choosing a dusty 1963 Volkswagen-- yes, you got guessed it!, but continuing to have heart and emotions. Against her father's wishes, she winds up on the road to NASCAR-- her childhood dream-- and ends up competing with professional driver Trip Murphy.

Family-oriented yarn is filled with music montages that resemble MTV videos of the 1980s (and today's Disney Channel ones as well)-- often to avoid using the film's all-ready corny dialogue-- and the most ridiculous, cliché-filled story one would ever think of. Many of the film's CGI look fake and cartoonish in comparison with those we're so accustomed to see in Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and so forth.

Hoever, the movie still has some good qualities. Lindsay Lohan makes a relatively good performance in what is expected to be her last Disney film, and former Caped Crusader Michael Keaton has surely changed over the years, making him fit for the role of Lohan's father. The rest of the cast-- including Matt Dillon as the villain-- make the most of what the script gives them, and it's good to see The Love Bug blinking and being naughty.

The movie is not very good but it is not bad, either; it's sort of another average, live-action Disney movie. It is not as good as The Champions (which is known as "The Mighty Ducks" in America), but still an effective feel-good movie in the end and the movie is adequate for kids. Nevertheless, it is too by-the-numbers for anyone older.
