Storyline

Maggie Peyton is the new owner of Number 53--the free wheelin' Volkswagen bug with a mind of its own; she puts the car through its paces on the road to becoming a NASCAR competitor. As a third generation member of a NASCAR family, racing is in Maggie Peyton's blood, but she is forbidden from pursuing her dream by her overprotective father, Ray Peyton, Sr. When Ray Sr. 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 clamoring 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 an alternate route for her future. Written by gavin (gunmasterM@hotmail.com)

Trivia

The original script was greenlit largely because the studio liked its decisions to A) place the Herbie character into a realistic world and B) make Herbie's powers subtle and presented in small increments. Later script revisions ended up presenting a more cartoonish and fantasy-based world. See more »

Goofs

When Maggie loses hope during the big race after getting boxed in by the other cars, we see her team bow their heads. The movie then immediately cuts to a shot of her in the car saying, "I'm getting killed out here. I can't shake them." The very next shot is of her dad with a headset on standing among the team (in between Ray Peyton Jr. and Kevin). He wasn't standing with them when they bowed their heads three seconds earlier and there wasn't enough time for him to have walked up, put the headset on, and stand there so calmly. See more »

Quotes

Charisma: Anyway, I thought I'd come back to start our road trip early.
Maggie Peyton: Slight problem. I promised I'd meet a friend out in the desert.
Charisma: Why? Are you burying a body?

A good family film
27 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

In a day and age of films that are just not really family friendly, this one shines in that aspect. It is a good, clean family film. No bad language, no sex, no violence. (Hmm, maybe that is why some people didn't like it.) Do you have to be a real "Herbie" fan to enjoy it? I don't think so. You just have to use some imagination and get into the "spirit" of the film. I think that Lindsay Lohan does a good job at her role in the film, but some of the acting may seem a little cheesy at times. (Could be just the persona of the film.) There were several scenes that could have been taken right out of "The Love Bug" and the like, which some of the older Herbie fans will come to enjoy. So, all in all, I am giving this movie a 9 mainly because of the "family film" factor. If your kids are like "oh yeah right" when they see some obvious unreal effects, like a car "winking" or driving by itself, then it may not be for them. But if your kids just want to have some fun - go see it.
