All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

It's not surprising that they haven't got around to changing the plot formula, only the scenery.

A cheerful, four-cylinder children's movie, though its car jokes aren't good for much mileage.

Audience Reviews for Herbie Goes Bananas


This is the corniest and least funny of Disney's Love Bug series.

This is similar to the first, if you liked that you'll love this to.

Super Reviewer


Tedious kid's stuff in which the living VW beetle goes south of the border and has a series of unfunny misadventures. Anyone over the age (or IQ) of 8 shouldn't bother.
