Review

Our Score
This third entry in Disney's series about the VW Beetle with a mind of its own is rather predictable, though still entertaining. Here, Herbie is reunited with driver Dean Jones (from the original Love Bug movie) and falls for a powder-blue Lancia (driven by Julie Sommars) during the Paris-Monte Carlo rally. Putting a headstrong intelligence under the bonnet of a car has been a winning formula over the years for the studio, but there are only a few touches here that rise above the mechanical.

Summary

The adventurous Volkswagen Beetle is entered in the Trans-Europa race from Paris to Monte Carlo. However, he causes chaos for his driver and mechanic when he falls in love with a rival car, whose owner is unaware her vehicle is alive. Meanwhile, a pair of slippery jewel thieves have secreted their loot in Herbie's petrol tank. Disney comedy adventure sequel, starring Dean Jones, Roy Kinnear, Don Knotts and Julie Sommars.
