5.0 out of 5 stars Racing in France, 11 Jun. 2004
This review is from: Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Jim Douglas and Herbie are coming out of retirement. And they've decided to do it in grand style, in the new Monte Carlo Relay in France. They've hardly arrived when two jewel thieves decide to hide a priceless diamond in Herbie's gas tank. As if that weren't enough, Herbie has fallen head over heels for a cute little Lancia also in the race, and Jim is finding her fiery driver rather irresistible as well. This is going to be complicated race.
This was actually the last of the original Herbie movies I saw, and is probably my least favorite. Still, it's loads of fun. Part of this is because there is so much going on. Between the love plots, the thieves, and the race, there's hardly a dull moment. Don Knotts is not a favorite of mine and gets on my nerves here, as does Xavier Saint-Macary as an over eager detective. Still, the rest of the cast is fine. I was a bit disappointed that there is no mention of Carole from the first movie. And, of course, they completely changed the gas cap to make that plot work. But then again, how can you nit pick a movie about a car that thinks for itself?
Disney could have done much better with this DVD. The picture is presented in full frame, cropping the sides of the picture from its original release. What we do have has some grain and dirt, but looks remarkable well for its age. The sound is full surround and sounds wonderful. As with the other Herbie sequels, there are no extras.
Even being the last one I saw, this movie has a wonderful nostalgia appeal to me because of Herbie. How I loved that car as a kid! Any one else who grew up loving Herbie will want this DVD since it seems to be the best Disney will offer us for the foreseeable future.
