Herbie Fully Loaded

New York Daily News
Just like the can-do VW Beetle of the title, Herbie: Fully Loaded succeeds adorably despite the obstacles in its path.
A pleasingly retro recycling of "The Love Bug."
The New York Times
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.
Los Angeles Times
It may be by-the-numbers, but it knows that under the right circumstances those numbers can lead to a fair amount of fun.
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.
The Hollywood Reporter
Herbie: Fully Loaded is, pure and simple, a children's film.
Though not much of a movie, Loaded probably will bring fleeting satisfaction to audiences who don't know Dean Jones from Spike Jones.
TV Guide Magazine
Only those who really love the Bug will be willing to put up with the loose plot and over-the-top action scenes.
The A.V. Club
In reviving the beloved Disney property, Robinson attempts to resuscitate the fast-motion shots and sub-Three Stooges physical comedy of classic Herbie, but the new model seems distantly related to the innocent, peppy little car of old.
