Trivia

The gas cap used in the film was fake. As every Herbie fan knows, Herbie's gas tank is under the hood, (as revealed plenty of times in the original movie). The fake gas tank was added so that the gem thieves could easily stash the diamond inside Herbie, without looking conspicuous. The tank was removed in the remaining sequels. See more »

Goofs

At the end of the The Love Bug, Jim Douglas married Carole Bennett; however, in this film, Douglas is apparently single, given his romantic interest in Dianne Darcy. This issue is never addressed in the film, and no mention of Carol or Douglas being married is ever made. See more »

Quotes

[In the final stage of the race, Bruno Von Stickle won't let Herbie pass him]
Wheely Applegate: Dirty road hog! Why doesn't he learn how to drive?
Jim Douglas: He knows how to drive, that's the trouble!
[They go round a pair of sharp curves, and Von Stickle does a better job of taking them than Herbie]
Wheely Applegate: Yeah, I see what you mean.

A fun and very charming Disney film
4 February 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really like This Herbie movie but even Theo its not my favorite in the series but its my 2nd my favorite with some silly and corny scenes its still a bloody good movie its funny and fun I love how they brought back Dean Jones who also appear in The love bug 1997 TV movie and in the short lived series called Herbie the love bug a rare nearly forgotten series which ended after 5 episodes. The story is about Jim returning to Herbie's life again after 12 years and takes him to Monte Carlo with a new car helper with him called wheelie played by Don Knotts and Herbie feels in love with another car which is one of reasons why this movie is really a charming movie and I think this is the 2nd best in the series so there you have it The love bug and Monte Carlo are far by the best in the series Herbie fully loaded is OK and Herbie rides again The love bug 1997 TV movie is pretty good the worst in the series Herbie goes bananas.{1 The love bug{2 Herbie goes to Monte Carlo{3 Herbie fully loaded{4 The love bug 1997{5 Herbie rides again{6 Herbie goes bananas} All in all Herbie Win the race again this is great fun and if you a Herbie fan like I am then I will love this movie I give this movie a 8.8 out of 10.
