Sex & Nudity

  • Very mild sensuality through comments, bared midriffs, mini skirts, a kiss, and some actions by Herbie towards a younger car. Quite iffy for a G-rated movie.

Violence & Gore

  • Slapstick violence and some crashed cars, sending one character to the hospital (the crash and hospital scenes are quite mild).
  • The two main characters go to a movie where a skeleton is walking toward the screen.


  • Pretty strong and frequent for a G-rated movie by today's standards, including at least 8 uses of "Oh my God," 2 of "God" and 1 use of "Swear to God." Also one "Crap."

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Younger kids may be worried when we see cars being smashed and crushed in a junkyard, with Herbie being next. A forklift then picks him up and starts to take him over to the crusher, but he ends up falling onto another car that Maggie originally wanted as her gift.
  • The hospital and crash scenes could seem intense to very young children.
  • The skeleton walking toward the screen in the movie theater could have the same effect.
