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!

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!

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.

Set 12 years after the original THE LOVE BUG (but in reality it was only 8 years after THE LOVE BUG was released), HERBIE GOES TO MONTE CARLO is the third Herbie movie and features the return of Jim Douglas (Dean Jones) and his beloved racing Volkswagen Beetle, Herbie. It's been years since Douglas was a world-class race car driver and he's determined to get back in the circuit and start making a name for himself again by entering in the Monte Carlo Grand Prix, a cross country race from Paris to Monte Carlo. Joining Douglas and Herbie is Jim's friend and mechanic, Wheely Applegate (Don Knotts). The team is all set to race, but then Herbie ends up falling in head over wheels for a beautiful blue and yellow Lancia Montecarlo driven by female driver Diane Darcy (Julie Sommars), who's trying to break into the boys club of racing. Herbie's infatuation proves to be a problem, but there are other issues. Two jewel thieves working for a mysterious Agent X have stolen a large diamond from a museum and have stashed the item in Herbie's gas tank and begin having their own race to corner Herbie and get that diamond back. So, the Grand Prix Monte Carlo becomes a race not only against other racers, but against the thieves, too.

THE LOVE BUG remains the best of the Herbie movies, but HERBIE GOES TO MONTE CARLO is one of the better sequels. The film returns Herbie to his racing roots and it's really great having Dean Jones back in the driver's seat as Jim Douglas. Herbie is the Love Bug after all and a Herbie film wouldn't be complete without a love story or two. There's a good balance in the movie between action, romance, and humor.
