The diners and waiter shown in front of Herbie in the closer shot of Herbie rolling through the Sheraton Hotel dining room are missing from the wide shot (in reality, they were matted in later to the closer shot). See more »
Herbie Rides Again is a great family comedy. The funniest part in the movie was when Herbie and all of his volkswagen friends chased Alonso Hawke down the streets of San Francisco. That part is hilarious and priceless. Children and adults will love this movie and the other Herbie movies too. Go out and buy all of the Herbie movies. You won't regret it.
