Content:

(BB, Ro, Fe, L, V, M) Mostly moral worldview with a touch of Romantic feminism where young woman becomes a race car driver, but nothing really radical or offensive; one butt, seven light exclamatory profanities and three hecks; mostly comical action violence such as car squirts oil on people, demolition derby scene, street racing, car jumps up on guardrail, and car crashes into wall; no sex; no nudity; no alcohol; no smoking or drugs; and, heroine lies to parent.

Review:

Herbie the Love Bug sports a brand new NASCAR look in HERBIE FULLY LOADED, one of the most wholesome, fun-friendly family movies this summer. Starring Lindsay Lohan and Michael Keaton, HERBIE is ready to zoom into the imaginations of children of all ages.

Miss Lohan plays Maggie Peyton, a college graduate bound for a sports journalism career in New York City. A third-generation member of a legendary NASCAR family, Maggie has racing in her blood. Her overprotective father Ray (Michael Keaton), however, has forbidden her to do any racing.

One day, Maggie rescues Herbie from an angry junkyard owner. Her father figures Maggie’s not going to do any racing in an old 1963 Volkswagen, but he doesn’t know Herbie like we know Herbie. Maggie is soon trading racing challenges with conceited NASCAR champion Trip Murphy, played by Matt Dillon. Maggie learns that Herbie has plenty of charms to help her shift the course of her life, not to mention the sagging racing fortunes of her famous family.

HERBIE FULLY LOADED is good family entertainment. It’s got plenty of laughs under the hood to keep its pistons pumping. The race car scenes are exciting and had the audience cheering at the preview MOVIEGUIDE® attended. Michael Keaton warmly plays a real-life NASCAR dad and Lindsay Lohan retains her crown as the Most Delightful Princess of the family movie genre. Despite a few light exclamatory profanities and some lying, the movie teaches positive values. It will be loads of fun for parents and children to see Herbie in action once more.
