Storyline

Maggie Peyton is the new owner of Number 53--the free wheelin' Volkswagen bug with a mind of its own; she puts the car through its paces on the road to becoming a NASCAR competitor. 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. Written by gavin (gunmasterM@hotmail.com)

Trivia

Some deleted and alternate footage appears in the movie's trailer: A shot of Charisma (Jill Ritchie) in the kitchen saying "Whoa". The shot of the Mexican-looking guy in the crowd lowering his glasses is flipped, though the text on the signs in the background is not reversed. So either the shot in the trailer or the one in the film was digitally corrected so that the text would not be backwards. A shot of Herbie making a "crazy face" at Trip Murphy (Matt Dillon) shows him lying on the ground facing Herbie (his knee is in the shot). In the movie, his back is to Herbie. Ray Peyton, Sr. (Michael Keaton) and Maggie (Lindsay Lohan) by the trophy and plaque wall, where she says to him "I didn't know that you took out another mortgage on the house." A shot of Maggie falling back onto her bed. See more »

Goofs

In the Demolition Derby scene, Herbie has a roof lining installed and a nice white interior but by the end of the scene the interior has been stripped out. See more »

Quotes

Maggie Peyton: [reading the note in Herbie's glove box] "Please take care of Herbie. Whatever your problems, he will help you find the answer." Great, a fortune cookie on wheels.

Delightfully Cute
15 September 2008 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

When Maggie Peyton (Lindsay Lohan) graduates from college, her father Ray Peyton Sr. (Michael Keaton) gives an used car from a scrap metal yard as a gift, and she takes a 1963 Volkswagen beetle with the number 53. Maggie finds a letter in the glove compartment telling that the bug's name is Herbie and she visits her friend and mechanic Kevin (Justin Long) to check Herbie. They go to a car show where they are challenged by the arrogant champion racer Trip Murphy (Matt Dillon) for a race. Maggie and Herbie win Trip, and the revengeful pilot plots a scheme to take Herbie from Maggie.

"Herbie Fully Loaded" is delightfully cute and a magnificent family entertainment. The story is predictable, corny, but mainly adorable. The sweet Lindsay Lohan is perfect for this type of role, and Matt Dillon performs a great villain. Take the popcorn, join family and friends and have a good-time watching "Herbie Fully Loaded" on DVD. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Herbie, Meu Fusca Turbinado" ("Herbie, My Turbined Beetle")
