Reviews:  The simple pleasure of watching a living car squirt oil in a villain's face just never goes away. Disney, in their effort to revitalize the "Herbie" franchise, has made the wise choice of not trying too hard--aside from a small bit of skateboarding action, just about every element of "Herbie: Fully Loaded" would fit right into the 1963 original (groovily titled "The Love Bug") or its various sequels. Maggie Peyton (Lindsay Lohan, the fiery-tressed starlet of "Mean Girls" and "Freaky Friday") wants to join her family's dynasty of race car drivers, but her father (Michael Keaton, "Batman Returns") worries that she'll get hurt. Instead, as a college graduation gift, he buys her a junked-out Volkswagen Beetle--which turns out to be Herbie, a car with a mind of its own. Soon Maggie and Herbie are racing against an arrogant racing champion (Matt Dillon, "Crash", "There's Something About Mary") and duking it out with monster trucks, eventually hoping her father's heart will change. "Herbie: Fully Loaded" is formulaic fluff, but executed with cheerful enthusiasm; everyone involved has clearly embraced the mix of slapstick hijinks and light family drama. There's even a handful of cameos by NASCAR drivers. The result is every bit as ridiculous yet entertaining as its forebears. "--Bret Fetzer"
