Movie Review: Herbie: Fully Loaded

In case anyone hasn't noticed yet, Hollywood isn't feeling very original at the moment. So movie fare contains a lot of remakes and movie adaptations of TV shows and comic books. 

This time, Disney has decided to make a new Herbie movie. For those too young to remember, Herbie was a Volkswagen beetle with attitude who starred in a number of movies in the late 1960s. 

When the movie begins, Herbie's glory days are behind him and he's literally on the scrapheap. Enter Lindsay Lohan (left). What follows is pretty predictable and, you can probably fill it in in its entirety right now if you've ever seen an American movie and can think really big when it comes to clichés. Like, if you think that a movie about a girl who thinks she's a horse should end with her winning the grand national, then you'll be in your element on this script.

What we wind up with, somehow, is a G-rated action movie, featuring an incredibly cute car with a driver who looks great in a bumfreezer skirt that barely covers her hips. 

Lindsay could have used some help from Herbie herself recently when the paparazzi crashed her car.

Well, I liked it. It was a fun movie in the old tradition. Also, Lindsay Lohan looks great - did I mention that?
