Kids will fall in love with this spunky Bug.
| Original Score: 4/5
The Love Bug is surely the first film in which the actors...are so meticulously insipid that a car can handily steal the show.
The first of the silly VW Beetle with a cute personality comedies, is as childish dated and occasionally sweet as the others.
| Original Score: 2/5
The entire cast give standout performances, but Herbie steals the show in this well-directed, funny picture.
| Original Score: 3/4
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.
'Herbie' and his plucky stunt drivers steal the show in this agreeable family entertainment.
Suffers now from dated special effects, but still cute.
| Original Score: 3/5
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.
I'm a hopeless sucker for live-action '60s Disney, and this one is a classic.
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.
For a 35-year-old movie, Herbie's still got an awful lot of love to give.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
What this autopopathism means in terms of American culture is a subject I neither understand nor wish to.
