The world's wackiest Volkswagen is back in action in this action comedy. Maggie Peyton (Lindsay Lohan) is the 18-year-old daughter of Ray Peyton Sr. (Michael Keaton), a once-successful stock car drive... read more read more...r whose career is not what it once was. Maggie loves racing and is in line for a job covering NASCAR for ESPN, but in her heart she'd rather be behind the wheel, even though her father strictly forbids this. For Maggie's birthday, Ray takes her out looking for a used car, and she finds herself strangely drawn to a wrecked 1963 Volkswagen in a salvage yard. Against Ray's better judgment, Maggie gets the car, and a note in the glove box tells her the rust bucket is named "Herbie," and he can help her solve her problems. To her surprise, the message turns out to be true -- with a little TLC, Herbie is running like new, and after showing his stuff in a street race, Maggie persuades her naysayer dad to take her and her VW on as part of his racing team. Herbie: Fully Loaded also stars Matt Dillon as rival racer Trip Murphy, Breckin Meyer as Maggie's brother (and fellow struggling driver) Ray Jr., and Justin Long as Maggie's friend Kevin. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    They worked very hard on bringing the magical presence of Herbie back after so long, the actors however weren't as magical. I didn't like it but I didn't hate it either.

    HERBIE: FULLY LOADED is a ho-hum update (again?) of Disney's family classic THE LOVE BUG.

    Now the never-ending saga stars Miss Drug Queen--whoops!--Lindsay Lohan as the brand new, teenaged driver. Same stunts as always, and it's just what remastering can do, except remas... read moretering is better because Lohan isn't begging for a role to earn her some money for her quote-unquote "needs". (Seriously--with a family movie? Uh-uh.)

    Young kids will think it's the best ever, because they don't know what a good movie is. Adults will fall asleep, wake up, and rent THE LOVE BUG for a good, headache-less memory. 'Nuff said!

    Not a bad movie, a cool addition to the series, and Linsey Lohan was a good pick as the main actress, but still a very boring and cheesy film.

    Really enjoyed this film! Herbie is a classic! The remake of this has to be as good as the original although I haven't seen it.

    Not that bad, i haven't seen any of the herbie films but this film was pretty entertaining, i mean come on, It has MICHAEL F*CKING KEATON IN IT, Hes one of the best actors of all time in my mind. Face it nobody can top BATMAN

    A so-so film, really aimed at a younger audience. Herbie for the next generation. Might be ok for them but I didn't think it was as funny as I remember the originals when I was a kid. I'm not sure about animating the front of the car to make it more like a face in some scenes eit... read moreher. Ok to watch through with your kids, surprisingly good cast for this I have to add!

    Maybe I'm just a sucker for car movies, but I really had fun watching this. It's actually the most enjoyable entry in the Herbie franchise when you think about it. I loved seeing Matt Dillon as a villain, that's always fun to see. Michael Keaton, I think his reputation speaks for... read more itself. Then there's Lindsay Lohan who I could never, ever, get tired of watching. She's just incredibly lovable in every way.

    I'm going to be honest, there's not much to like here, but everything that there is to like that you can find, I found, and I give it that much more credit. Besides Freaky Friday, this is lindsay lohans only good movie!

    Herbie: Running Low On Everything. Speeding, Another example of the withering Disney Empire. Herbie should have been left to the past but Disney wants to squeeze it for all it's worth. A shameless money grab.

Its vibrating crowd scenes and splashy visuals will please the seven-to-12 set. Full Review

I guess that wacky little car might amuse small children, but the special effects are surprisingly weak, the story is beyond clichéd and the attempt to wedge the hot NASCAR scene into the movie is jus... Full Review

Fully Loaded adds up to little more than a cynical marriage of marketable commodities -- Lohan, NASCAR and the durably profitable Bug himself. Full Review

As serviceable an introduction as any to the notion of a sentient set of wheels. Full Review

This Herbie is loaded all right. Unfortunately, it's with spare parts from dozens of other equally mediocre underdog sports films. Full Review

I personally did not hoot or chortle or chuckle or holler or wonder, not once. Full Review

It's nice to see that Disney remembers its past, even if four decades of social change and global issues seem to have made no impact on it whatsoever. Full Review

Herbie feels modern in all the right places, with a young heroine whose presence on the track is never questioned or undermined. Full Review

Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune

All ends well, everyone gets what's coming to them, and any 9-year-old girl who does not stand on her seat cushion and cheer has remarkable self-control. Full Review

Lohan is practically a victim in her own car, helplessly trying to regain control of her possessed vehicle. It's like an update of Stephen King's Christine for kids. Full Review
