In 1969, The Love Bug introduced movie audiences to Herbie, a Volkswagen Beetle with a mind of its own. The movie was a box office smash and over the next 11 years, three sequels rolled off the assembly line, the last being Herbie Goes Bananas in 1980. There was also a made-for-TV movie and a short-lived TV series.
Twenty-five years later, in Herbie: Fully Loaded, the little car is still looking good – better than ever, in fact. His new owner is Maggie Peyton (Lindsay Lohan) who finds Herbie just at the right time to help out her family – dad (Michael Keaton) and brother (Breckin Meyer). When an amazed Maggie learns what tricks Herbie has under his hood, she takes him onto the fast track to become a Nascar competitor.
On hand to make things difficult for Maggie is bad boy, Trip Murphy (Matt Dillon). But Herbie is not a car to tinker with as Trip soon finds out much to his embarrassing disadvantage. Justin Long is also along for the ride providing some love interest for Maggie. But it’s the new, tricked up, quick thinking VW that provides the real fun – both on and off the road.
