Herbie: Fully Loaded

2006-03-30 13:12


Start your engines! Herbie, the most beloved car star of them all, is back! Lindsay Lohan stars as Maggie Peyton - the Love bug's new owner - who gives Number 53 an extreme makeover and turns the free-wheelin' Volkswagen bug into a NASCAR competitor.

As a third-generation member of a NASCAR family, racing is in Maggie's blood, but she is forbidden from pursuing her dream by her overprotective father, Ray (Michael Keaton). When Ray 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 clamouring 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 that he has an alternative route for her future.

What the critics are saying:

"Herbie: Fully Loaded is that modern rarity, a genial, sweet-natured family film, G-rated and proud of it, an old-fashioned Disney movie to the core."
- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

"Herbie feels modern in all the right places, with a young heroine whose presence on the track is never questioned or undermined."
- Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News

"This remake is about half of a very likable film. But in movies (as in auto races) it isn't how you start, it's how you finish. And Herbie should have kept something in the tank for the late going."
- David Hiltbrand, Philadelphia Inquirer

The world's favourite Love Bug returns to the big screen and gets an extreme makeover from Linday Lohan.

Herbie Fully Loaded excellent! The VW clubs & owners were invited last week to preview the movie at the drive-in, free access to beetles. Ofcourse we loved it, we all got sentimental, and non-vw fans amongst us were soon converted. ofcourse this beetle/vw fan recommends the movie!
