Start your engines! Herbie, the most beloved car star of them all, is back and Lindsay Lohan’s got him in Disney’s all new revved-up comedy adventure, “Herbie: Fully Loaded.” Lohan stars as Maggie Peyton, the new owner of Number 53 – the free-wheelin’ Volkswagen bug with a mind of its own – who puts the car through its paces on the road to becoming a NASCAR competitor. Herbie’s got some new tricks under his hood as he takes audiences for an action-packed spin in this high-speed comedy. With an all-star cast along for a wild ride, this comedy puts Herbie to the test – on-road, off-road, on the track and into the record books.

Dove Review

Maggie used to race cars but got hurt and doesn’t do it anymore. She just graduated from college and her dad brings her to the junkyard to pick out any car she wants. She finds the “bug”. Maggie and her friend fix the car up and she wants to race it. But her dad is kind of iffy about that. So Maggie lies to her dad and says that she wouldn’t but she does. Eventually she realizes she has to tell her dad the truth. Then he trusts her to compete in the big race her brother couldn’t do. Will Maggie win the race? This is a cute family movie. There was nothing wrong with it. It shows that if you lie that you should always confront the truth. There were a couple of cute things in the movie such as at the beginning when Herbie was brought to the junkyard, and a man was making fun of it and the car keeps squirtting stuff out at him. Also, when Herbie sees another ” bug,” romantic music starts playing like he was in love with it. It was cute. This movie is recommended for all ages.
