About the Movie

He's the star who provides the most laughs per gallon. He's Herbie, the lovable car with a mind of his own. Dean Jones, Michele Lee, and Buddy Hackett join Herbie in this revved-up comedy classic. Jones plays down-on-his-luck race car driver Jim Douglas, who reluctantly teams up with the little machine. Douglas thinks his sudden winning streak is due to his skill, not Herbie's. He finally realizes the car's worth when a sneaky rival plots to steal Herbie for himself. But it's Herbie who'll steal your heart in this wildly fun roller-coaster ride of a movie you'll never forget!

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Such a vulnerable movie that if it were a little less sappy, one might feel compelled to protect it, as if it were someone under 7 or over 65 -- that portion of the public for which it is intended. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: For sheer inventiveness of situation and the charm that such an idea projects, The Love Bug rates as one of the better entries of the Disney organization. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: 'Herbie' and his plucky stunt drivers steal the show in this agreeable family entertainment. – Geoff Andrew, Time Out, Mar 9, 2009

Fresh: The Boy-Car-Girl movie has some terrific driving stunts, thanks to a 127-man crew and the Porsche or bus engine given to the car with a mind of its own. – Film4, Jun 24, 2010

Customer Reviews

Love the movie - - - hate the renting

I dont understand - - - - - dont they make money from selling movies as well as renting them or are their profit margins much lower when they sell that they torture us for weeks with the renting only option hoping we'd go for it until they finally allow us to buy them


Please, drop the rent on this and let us buy it. My whole family has been waiting for the classic Herbie movies. I'd rather buy than rent.

Great Family Movie

Herbie is a great role model of love and trust and I absolultely love this movie. And also please put "Herbie Rides Again", "Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo", and "Herbie Goes Bananas" on as well.
