Herbie, the Volkswagen Beetle with a mind of its own, is racing in the Monte Carlo Rally. Unbeknownst to Herbie's driver, thieves have hidden a cache of stolen diamonds in Herbie's gas tank, and are now trying to get them back.
Jim Douglas and his partner Bo ran a small driving school with a very "human" Volkswagen Beetle named Herbie, who could think for "himself" and frequently got Jim into some sticky comic ... See full summary »
This saga of the old west involves twin brothers who compete for possession of a rickety cow town founded by their father while a crooked Mayor tries to put an end to the competitors so he can inherit the town himself.
Pete Stancheck inherits from his Uncle Jim Douglas a race car being stored in Puerto Vallarta. With his friend Davy Johns (D.J. to his friends) accompanying him to P.V., Pete is dismayed to learn that the car is an older model Volkswagen Beetle. But when Pete and D.J. see what the car can do and learn that it somewhat has a mind of its own, they decide to enter it into the Brazil Grand Primeo formula one race. En route to Rio de Janeiro, Herbie, the car, gets Pete and D.J. into one predicament after another as it tries to help its new friend, a streetwise orphan named Paco, who Pete and D.J. encountered in P.V. and who stowed away in Herbie's trunk. Because of these predicaments, Pete and D.J. end up requiring a quick influx of cash and slyly enlist the help of wealthy Louise Trent and her bookish niece, anthropology doctoral candidate Melissa, to be their financiers. Pete's role in the scheme is to woo the shy Melissa, about which he feels guilty. But initially unknown to all of them...Written by
Herbie's name is mentioned only once in the film. This occurs when Pete first picks up Herbie at the beginning. The owner of the car lot tells Pete a story about Jim Douglas and says, "Herbie, he see it, he stop." For the rest of the movie, the car is called Ocho. See more »
Though the ship scenes are supposedly set on the Sun Princess, at least three different ships' exteriors are shown during the course of the movie. Herbie is shown being loaded on to the actual Sun Princess in the beginning, but later, aerial shots of the ship are actually of the Island or Pacific Princess (aka The Love Boat), which, whilst still a Princess ship, has a differently-shaped funnel. When Herbie is dispatched into the drink, the scene is set on an entirely different ship all together; you can see two orange funnels in the background, when in fact the Sun Princess has only one aft funnel with Princess' trademark Seawitch on it.

Okay I have something to say I am a big fan of Herbie I love the jokes and the tricks in the first film The love bug my favorite Disney movie and my favorite Herbie movie is the best in the series Herbie rides again was okay it was not that bad Herbie goes to Monte Carlo was pretty good it was not that bad of kids movie but this one I don't think so it did not make sense like in the first film Jim buys Herbie and Herbie Win so many races for Jim in the 2nd one Herbie try ed to save the old firehouse from Mr Hawk in 3rd film Jim returns to Herbie's life and takes him to Monte Carlo and where he feels in love with someone but this one is weak and the worst in the series it does not even light up to the first film because the characters in this one have no development and the hole plot was a big huge miss and hole movie with bananas was stupid I mean Herbie is race car and he should of had his normal paint job he only had it for about 20 mims or so and he was called Herbie once so the hole movie itself suck so if you are a big fan of the first three Herbie films like I am you are not going to not like this one but The love bug 97 TV movie put Herbie back up to his wheelies and Herbie fully loaded as well so I give this movie a 4 out of 10 because it does not light up the first film This movie is probably great for kids but if you want to see this movie to see how the adventure continued but don't count on it being a 5 stars in your book.
