I guess this might be my second favorite Herbie movie; I did watch it about as much as "Monte Carlo". The scene where Herbie "walks the plank" is really heart-breaking. But the relationships of the orphan boy and the car really pulls the movie through as well as the relationships of the other characters. In the end, that's pretty much the theme of this film: friendships. And I like that.
130221: I was surprised that I enjoyed this movie as much as I did. The film quality was good, there were some funny moments, my boy enjoyed it quite a bit (8 years old - another surprise), and I loved the way Herbie looked with the wide tires and moon caps. Cool car. Probably a little better than my 2.5 stars but just can't give it 3.
