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

Some deleted and alternate footage appears in the movie's trailer:
  • A shot of Charisma (Jill Ritchie) in the kitchen saying "Whoa."


  • The shot of the Mexican-looking guy in the crowd lowering his glasses is flipped, though the text on the signs in the background is not reversed. So either the shot in the trailer or the one in the film was digitally corrected so that the text would not be backwards.


  • A shot of Herbie making a "crazy face" at Trip Murphy (Matt Dillon) shows him lying on the ground facing Herbie (his knee is in the shot). In the movie his back is to Herbie.


  • Ray Peyton Sr. (Michael Keaton) and Maggie (Lindsay Lohan) by the trophy/plaque wall where she says to him "I didn't know that you took out another mortgage on the house."


  • A shot of Maggie falling back onto her bed.

Goofs

In the final race scene after the oil pan replacement, we see a shot of Herbie passing the Lowe's car. However, not two seconds later we see a rear shot of the Lowe's car. The announcer said "Herbie is passing them left and right" but this would not be continuous if the Lowe's car passed him back. See more »

Captured the Spirit of the Original Movies -- Loved It!
26 June 2005 | by (Charlotte, NC) – See all my reviews

First of all, let me say that I'm a 41 year old man who saw all of the original Love Bug movies with my mom growing up in Chicago.

This movie is an instant classic! It captured the fun spirit of the original moves--I felt like very little time had passed and the same magic was present in this movie. It's was fun, zany, cute, and endearing.

My nine year old daughter and I laughed and cheered through the whole thing. It's a solid 'A' rating and 5/5 stars in both of our eyes. We couldn't stop talking about how good it was after leaving the theater.

The acting wouldn't win an Oscar but was more than adequate for a kids' movie.

The story was well written. It did a great job bridging the past to the current time-frame. It was also pretty original and employed modern racing car themes like monster trucks and NASCAR.

I don't understand why the general public and professional critics are rating it so low. It's a kids' movie and likewise one has to have the correct mind-set when viewing it. I was swept away from the beginning and it kept me engaged. So many other movies these days have various flaws that keep coming to mind when you watch them; this movie was just fine.

Go see this movie with your kids. It's refreshingly clean and a blast!
