Its vibrating crowd scenes and splashy visuals will please the seven-to-12 set.

I guess that wacky little car might amuse small children, but the special effects are surprisingly weak, the story is beyond clichéd and the attempt to wedge the hot NASCAR scene into the movie is just clumsy.

Fully Loaded adds up to little more than a cynical marriage of marketable commodities -- Lohan, NASCAR and the durably profitable Bug himself.

This Herbie is loaded all right. Unfortunately, it's with spare parts from dozens of other equally mediocre underdog sports films.

It's nice to see that Disney remembers its past, even if four decades of social change and global issues seem to have made no impact on it whatsoever.

All ends well, everyone gets what's coming to them, and any 9-year-old girl who does not stand on her seat cushion and cheer has remarkable self-control.

Lohan is practically a victim in her own car, helplessly trying to regain control of her possessed vehicle. It's like an update of Stephen King's Christine for kids.

Herbie: Fully Loaded is that modern rarity, a genial, sweet-natured family film, G-rated and proud of it, an old-fashioned Disney movie to the core.

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.

This isn't a movie for the ages, but it is a movie for young ages, the kind of film you can unashamedly take your kids to and know they're learning the magic of film.

The comedy is pleasant for a while, and it's a totally harmless movie for kids, but it runs mostly on a high-octane mix of slapstick comedy and special effects -- with little for discriminating moviegoers to enjoy.

Herbie: Fully Loaded proves that a movie about a souped-up Volkswagen Beetle with the engine of a rebel and a will of its own can still be a pedestrian outing.

Loaded does not address the fact that a car with superpowers in an auto race is a lot like a home run hitter who takes steroids. Herbie is the new Jose Canseco.

As that ancient Beetle with the number 53 on his hood reminds us, when it comes to good kiddie fare, it's about the heart, not the horsepower.

Though Lohan doesn't embarrass herself in a film in which she appears in virtually every frame, this tepid tribute to girl power hardly represents a step forward from Lohan's breakthrough roles.
