  1. Just like the can-do VW Beetle of the title, Herbie: Fully Loaded succeeds adorably despite the obstacles in its path.
  2. For those newbies, this update, starring peppery Disney re-do queen Lindsay Lohan as wannabe car racer Maggie Peyton, is as serviceable an introduction as any to the notion of a sentient set of wheels.

    A pleasingly retro recycling of "The Love Bug."
  4. A perfectly silly movie for a silly season that in recent years has forgotten how to be this silly. Directed by Angela Robinson, this latest installment in the movie-television franchise about a tiny car named Herbie with a will of its own and the temperament of a rambunctious 7-year-old knows exactly what it is and what it isn't.
  5. It may be by-the-numbers, but it knows that under the right circumstances those numbers can lead to a fair amount of fun.
  6. Matt Dillon almost runs away with the movie as a preening, conniving NASCAR champ who may be dumber than a box of rocks but realizes there's something up with the VW.
  7. The exception is Matt Dillon, who goes all-out to be arrogant and despicable. Indeed, building on his scary performance earlier this year in "Crash," he's shaping up to be quite the movie villain: definitely someone you love to hate.

    The movie is pleasant but unspectacular, and at times it borders on being too cute.
  9. Anyone who isn't charmed by the idea of a Beetle crossing the finish line first is either chronically churlish or isn't trying.
  10. This remake is about half of a very likable film. But in movies (as in auto races) it isn't how you start, it's how you finish. And Herbie should have kept something in the tank for the late going.

    They worked very hard on bringing the magical presence of Herbie back after so long, the actors however weren't as magical.

    Good message, poor execution. This movie could've been so much better. It didn't live up to its full potential, and it had so much of it! But,Good message, poor execution.

    They gave this car a personality and somehow the movie turns out to be a really cool experience. Lindsay Lohan also does great here.
