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.
Plot: Maggie Peyton, the new owner of Number 53 – the free-wheelin’ Volkswagen bug with a mind of its own – puts the car through its paces on the road to becoming a NASCAR competitor.

Disney’s return to successful formula; some laughs…
Lindsay Lohan plays a Los Angeles college grad from a NASCAR family whose graduation present from pop Michael Keaton is the same ’63 Volkswagen Beetle from 1968’s “The Love Bug” and its horde of cinematic follow-ups. ‘Herbie’, a car with a mind of its own, not only gets Lohan back on the racing track, but plays matchmaker for her and a cute auto-mechanic as well. Not especially imaginative, but a nice family film with some mild laughs (one which is sweetly in-tune with its ’70s roots). The story denouement is utterly predictable, and the performances are all phoned-in (Lohan is so enervated, she barely reacts the first time she realizes her car is possessed). Still, the pace is fast, the music selections bright, and the special effects are good. ** from ****
Why Do People Hate This Movie?
If you don’t like movies about a car with a mind of its own, or movies with Lindsey Lohan, or movies that are just plain fun with no sex, no violence, and no profanity, then skip this review.
I don’t understand why people say this movie is so bad. Maybe because it has all of the things I have listed above. Maybe people just don’t like innocent fantasies that harken back to a simpler time.
I was 37 when this movie came out and saw it six times in the theater, and not because of Lindsey Lohan. This movie captured the spirit of the original Herbie. Yes, the characters are flat and one-dimensional. Yes, the movie is predictable. Who cares? It proves you don’t have to have sex, violence, and profanity to make a good family film.
