Editorial Reviews

Herbie, the VW with heart, adds some international flair to his lovable personality! Upon entering a Paris-to-Monte Carlo road race, Herbie falls hood over wheels in love when he encounters a sleek, sporty, light blue Lancia. Also vying for Herbie's attention is a gang of jewel thieves, who've ingeniously hidden a stolen gem in Herbie's gas tank! Thus begins a madcap chase across the French countryside that only The Love Bug could create!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Best of the Love Bug Bug Series June 13, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Herbie ,and Dean Jones, return in this third installment of the Love Bug Series. Made three years after Herbie Rides Again flopped, this film brought back the original formula to the series. Jim Douglas (Dean Jones) and his mechanic, Wheely Applegate (Don Knotts) have entered the Trans France race in Paris, France. When two jewel thieves are suspected of stealing a diamond, they reluctantly hide it in Herbie. Throughout the race, the thieves are trying to get the diamond out of Herbie. There are a few slow spots in the movie, but in the end, a good film!

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost as good as the Love Bug July 31, 2003
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo is the third movie in the Love Bug series and overall the second best. It takes place 12 years after the Love Bug as Jim Douglas tries to make a comeback with Herbie and a new mechanic, Wheely Applegate. Along the way, two jewel thieves hide a $6 million dollar jewel in Herbie's gas tank which they try and retrieve throughout the movie. Another subplot has Herbie falling in love with a car driven by Diane Darcy, the only female driver in the Trans France race. While at times the subplots slow the movie down, it is still very enjoyable. The movie returns to the roots of the Love Bug with the story focusing mostly on the racing where Herbie Rides Again and Herbie Goes Bananas go off on their own stories. Both are decent but the racing story is missed. In Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo the racing scenes are very well done during the qualifying rounds and also the Trans Fran.
Dean Jones returns as Jim Douglas and gives another good performance as the driver who fully believes in Herbie and his ability now. Don Knotts plays Wheely Applegate, Herbie's mechanic, and is very good with several funny scenes. Jones and Knotts have good chemistry together throughout. Julie Sommars is pretty good as Dianne Darcy, Roy Kinnear and Bernard Fox are funny as the bumbling thieves trying to get their diamond back, Jacques Martin plays the police inspector with alterior motives, Xavier Saint Macary as Lt. Fontenoy, the police officer trying to solve the case, and Eric Braeden as Bruno, the driver who tries over and over again to prevent Herbie from winning the race. I hope that Disney puts this and many other classics out on DVD since it is harder and harder to find VHS copies of so many movies. The Special Edition DVD for the Love Bug was great and should not be missed. This is a really fun movie that is right up there with the Love Bug that shouldn't be missed for Herbie fans everywhere!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Love Bug 3: Back on Track! February 26, 2006
Twelve years after leaving the racing scene, Jim Douglas and his living Volkswagen, Herbie, are set to make their comeback! They're entering the Trans-France Race from Paris to Monte Carlo, and they're not going to let anything stop them from regaining their superstar status! That's the intention anyway. But when fate throws a monkey wrench into their golden plan in the form of a lovely European racecar, it's all Jim and mechanic Wheely can do to keep Herbie's eyes on the prize! Of course, this is a comedy about Americans visiting Paris, so you've got to have some diamond heisting! While Jim and Wheely try their best to reason with Herbie and his dreamcar's untrusting female driver, they have no clue that two thieves working for a much bigger mastermind have stashed an enormous stolen diamond in Herbie's gas tank! As the thieves try to get their hands on love-struck Herbie and the diamond, the police chase after the thieves, even during the big race! And Jim and Wheely thought the only thing they had to worry about was their bullying European competition!

"Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo" is another excellent entry into Disney's still thriving Herbie franchise! The film is not without its quirks though. For example, what happened to Jim Douglas's wife, Carole, whom he married at the end of the original "Love Bug" film? And, why is it set 12 years after their last race, when, in fact, it was only made 8 years after the first film? Well, regardless, this third film about ol' Number Fifty-Three is no less fun, fanciful, and fantastic than any of Herbie's other wonderful sequels. There are plenty of great laughs thanks in no small-part to the genius of Don Knotts (who just passed on two nights ago and will be greatly missed) in the role of Herbie's mechanic, Wheely Applegate.

Herbie #53, a 1963 Volkswagen Beetle deluxe ragtop sedan painted with L87 pearl white, with wide racing tires, falls in love with a 1977, Lancia Monte Carlo #7 name Giselle. Giselle has Herbie Moonstruck and both Giselle and Herbie are distracted from getting qualifying times. Herbie animatronics allow him too Waltzes in front of Giselle, blink his headlights, open and close his hood, and move his wheels horizontal in a expression of awe as he watches Giselle tie his record breaking time for the course. Herbie is determined to impress Giselle by washing himself in a water font, bringing flowers to her, and serenading her down the waterfront. Herbie wins the Giselles heart after rescuing and extracting the car from the lake shoreline. Diane Darcy tells Jim, Wheely, and Herbie "win the race for them". Herbie wins the race and Jim and Wheely are famous again.

Herbie has an engine with the ability of tachometer readings of 7,000 rpm making him faster than the Black Pantheria driven by Claude Gilbert and the Laser 917 GT coupe driven by Von Stickle. Jim Douglas and Wheely Applegate have returned to race after 12 years. Jim and Diane are high-spirited and both enjoy a good fight. Diane gets the better end of the argument, as she manages to throw a vase, picture, and books at Jim keeping him dodging the projectiles. Diane thinks Jim is against her being a woman racer. Jim is just bullhead about Diane and thinking she is treacherously trying to disqualify him. Later Diane apologizes and the couple end up kissing each other. Von Stickle is the antagonist bully and Claude is his aid. Von Stickle car push Herbie off the road on numerous occasions. However, Von Stickle does not employ an devious strategies to put Herbie out of the race.

Yes it's bad acting and dated filming but my young kids still laughed at the very slap stick comedy. It's a clean movie with cars that do funny things.
