Audience Reviews for The Love Bug


This was way better than Lohan's version. (I didn't even see Lohan's version) I actually thought the car was alive... and I thought that maybe our VW bug was alive too. And this is the first time I remember hearing of the city Helsinki.


As a kid, I always liked watching this. I actually never made it through the entire movie in one sitting... but in many parts every other time I saw it, LOL.
