The legendary "Love Bug" who became an icon in the '60s rides again in 2005; only this time he's partnering up with Lindsay Lohan and headed from the scrap-yard heap to the high banked curves of NASCAR as he helps a young female race-car driver discover her destiny.

Action Comedy Adventure - A fast paced, feel-good story with heart. As expected, the story is more than a bit far-fetched, but it's clean, fun and exciting.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average I suppose Herbie has some nostalgic appeal, but the main draw will be to a new generation. It remains to be seen whether Herbie: Fully Loaded gives the car another lease on life or finally sends it to the cinematic junkyard.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average The movie is pretty cornball. Little kids would probably enjoy it, but their older brothers and sisters will be rolling their eyes, and their parents will be using their iPods.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We were only able to collect 55 moviegoer opinions. There just wasn't much of a crowd for Herbie. What a shame because most moviegoers (including myself) really enjoyed "Herbie: Fully Loaded," rating it very high. I thought it was surprisingly good. Certainly better than I expected. Looking at the opinions you can see that nearly three-quarters of all age groups rated "Herbie" "Very Good" or higher, which is great. Equally as important is the fact that there are no really low opinions. What's rare in todays movies is a story that's truly for the entire family. Well "Herbie" is that rare treat DON'T MISS IT! TAKE THE ENTIRE FAMILY!


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Herbie's (starring as himself) rescuer is none other than Maggie Peyton (LOHAN), a third generation member of a legendary NASCAR family. Racing is deep in Maggie's blood, but she has been forbidden from pursuing her dreams by her overprotective father and NASCAR champ Ray Peyton, Sr. (MICHAEL KEATON) and, instead, is about to begin a career at ESPN. Ray does offer to buy Maggie a car for college graduation, but takes her to the junkyard to pick out her gift. Maggie has her eye on something sporty, yet a certain rusty, banged-up, '60s-era white Volkswagen Beetle keeps vying for her attention, revealing that whatever he lacks in the engine compartment, he makes up for with personality. Much to her surprise, Maggie leaves the lot with a smoke-spewing Herbie—who she soon discovers is no ordinary auto, but a charmed car who will literally help her shift the course of her life. Soon, with a little help from his new friends, Herbie is stronger, faster and Herbie-er than ever, as he and Maggie become partners in a hilarious quest to make the world believe in them.
