Audience Reviews for The Love Bug

not anywhere near as good as the original, but it has Bruce Campbell and he's always fun (not a real good reason to like it, but still...).

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.
