Overview

The world's wackiest Volkswagen is back in action in this action comedy. Maggie Peyton (Lindsay Lohan) is the 18-year-old daughter of Ray Peyton Sr. (Michael Keaton), a once-successful stock car driver whose career is not what it once was. Maggie loves racing and is in line for a job covering NASCAR for ESPN, but in her heart she'd rather be behind the wheel, even though her father strictly forbids this. For Maggie's birthday, Ray takes her out looking for a used car, and she finds herself strangely drawn to a wrecked 1963 Volkswagen in a salvage yard. Against Ray's better judgment, Maggie gets the car, and a note in the glove box tells her the rust bucket is named "Herbie", and he can help her solve her problems. To her surprise, the message turns out to be true -- with a little TLC, Herbie is running like new, and after showing his stuff in a street race, Maggie persuades her naysayer dad to take her and her VW on as part of his racing team. Herbie: Fully Loaded also stars Matt Dillon as rival racer Trip Murphy, Breckin Meyer as Maggie's brother (and fellow struggling driver) Ray Jr., and Justin Long as Maggie's friend Kevin.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
The Parent Trap and Freaky Friday were career-revving star vehicles for Lindsay Lohan. But in her third Disney remake, it is the vehicle that is the star, and Lohan, as well as costars Michael Keaton and Matt Dillon, take a backseat. Twenty-five years after Herbie’s last theatrical film, the Volkswagen with a mind of his own is back on track, tricked out with more fine-tuned special effects than were available on the original 1969 model. Herbie: Fully Loaded is Formula 101 filmmaking, redeemed by a high-octane cast. Lohan stars as Maggie, who wants to follow in her former racing champion father’s footsteps. Keaton costars as her widowed father, who prefers to leave the driving to his son (Breckin Meyer). But after unwittingly rescuing “Number 53” from a junkyard, Maggie gets the chance to prove herself behind the wheel. Herbie takes Maggie for the ride of her life, as they challenge and defeat nasty and conceited rival Trip Murphy (Dillon). Maggie continues to race incognito without her father’s knowledge. Some things never go out of style, and one of them is the hilarious sight of an anthropomorphic Volkswagen performing extreme stunts. And Lohan is, as ever, in the driver’s seat, which stands to reason: If all those tabloid reports are true, she knows a little something about life in the fast lane.
All Movie Guide - Perry Seibert
As handled by director Angela Robinson, Herbie: Fully Loaded offers a first-rate entertainment that respects the source material without copying it or settling for nostalgia. The film quickly establishes the relationships between the main characters and allows their motivations to carry the story. The special effects in the film are unobtrusive, and occasionally Robinson uses similar processes that were utilized during the original Herbie films to make that cute little car do the impossible. The rock-solid editing allows the laughs to flow and builds suspense during the action sequences, without milking either. There is a bright, friendly look and feel to the film that puts audiences at ease, and assists the actors as they win over the audience. Even with a certain amount of tabloid baggage at this point in her career, Lindsay Lohan still manages to capture a smart girl-next-door vibe that few of her contemporaries can manage. She is genuinely appealing, and understands how to earn an audience's affection. Lohan gets first-rate support from Michael Keaton as a good father still in mourning over the loss of his wife, and outstanding comedic assistance from Justin Long who in his opening scene manages one of the most perfectly executed pratfalls captured on film in quite some time. The MPAA's G rating is often associated with kid-only films, but the sweet and likable Herbie: Fully Loaded earns its G rating by reminding viewers of a time when that rating meant the film can be enjoyed by all audiences.

We saw this movie at the show and it was well worth it. It's very entertaining for the whole family. The story and acting were equally good. I hadn't seen a Herbie movie in years and this new one was just as good as the others. It's great to see a movie that sends a good message.
