Movie Info

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 driver 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

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

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 just clumsy.

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

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

This new extreme installment of Disney's "Herbie" franchise is an attempt to resuscitate the property when it should have stayed long dead.

The "Lohan" (Lindsay) hits a G-rated double as college grad Maggie Peyton, the daughter of a famous car racing family, opposite a self-possessed Volkswagen bug named Herbie.

Lindsay, pre-drugs.

This film will not do much to restore Disney's fortunes. Lohan does seem to want to grow up . . . but she pretty much sleepwalks through this film.

Una muy agradable sorpresa veraniega que bien vale la pena disfrutar con la familia, con una buena bolsa de palomitas y, lo más importante, con alma de niño

...a thoroughly innocuous piece of work...

...exactly what we can count on from a Disney comedy these days--weightless, nonabrasive entertainment, appealing mainly to the youngest of children.

Here's an idea--give Lindsay Lohan the keys to a car and see what wreckage comes of it.

Hopefully, this movie will neither encourage the trend of guys naming their cars -- or body parts -- nor bring back the VW bug...

Will never become as classic and as fondly-remembered as the original, but for Disney's youth branch it's a step in the right direction.

Yes, it's silly, but it's also thoroughly engaging.

An enjoyable summer movie that kids will love and adults won't object to.

It's a no-brainer that Disney would do a re-make and a no-brainer is what we got.

A classic kids' movie, it redefines the word 'silly.'

Like a Dodge K-car with 350,000 miles and a good engine - it gets you from Point A to Point B but the ride isn't much fun.

Passes quickly and doles out enough sentimentality to stay pleasant.

A grande força deste longa reside no charme de Herbie. Lohan pode até ser uma atriz renomada da atualidade, mas aqui serve como mera coadjuvante de luxo para o veterano 53.

Lohan's perkiness can seem a bit too practiced, but she's surrounded by pros who don't play down to the material.

Audience Reviews for Herbie: Fully Loaded

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 remastering 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!

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.
