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
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 »
Kids will maybe get a kick out of this if they're about 10 years old
Matt Dillon plays a great villain in this show, but other than that, anyone over 17 will be bored out of their gourd. It is definitely for the 6-15 year old set, and of those folks, they better come from a NASCAR family. I frankly fell asleep through most of it and probably shouldn't even comment on it.
Someday I'll see it again, and try to make 'more better' comments. Lindsay Lohan wasn't drunk in this one. HOw'se that? She actually does a good job of playing a teen-ager, surrounded by people who love her cause she's so perky!!! Great escapist fare for folks whose children are being killed in Iraq.
The VW bug goes round and round a track. Good folks win the race. FINIS
