Herbie was great, he's back with a vengeance! NASCAR, who would have thought? He's a star! Everyone loves Herbie? Owning a vintage Beetle might make my opinion a bit biased, but believe me they do have seem to personalities of their own. Although his may be a bit over accentuated, that's what makes Herbie Herbie. He's is an icon to any VW fan. I remember seeing the movies as a kid and as silly as they sometimes were, you ultimately end up loving him, providing you are willing to suspend a bit of disbelief. It is wonderful to see him again after so many years. Lindsay did a great job as supporting actress to Herbie lets see him nominated for an Oscar.
