Product Description

Amazon.ca

Dean Jones, star of The Love Bug, came back to the fold for this third lap around the block, which finds him racing in Monte Carlo while thieves plant a stolen diamond in Herbie's gas tank. The plot is forced and conventional, but the cast is the thing: the excitable Don Knotts (The Apple Dumpling Gang) and the tormentable Roy Kinnear (Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory) are good men to have in a potboiler such as this. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

Herbie, the VW with heart, adds some international flair to his lovable personality! Upon enterting 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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Racing in France June 10 2004
Format: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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost as good as the Love Bug July 31 2003
Format:VHS Tape
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!

Not only is this Herbie Car alive and wins all the races, but now in this film He even falls in love , how Cute :)
Jim Dougles is back with a new Mechanic and they are off to France. A stolen gem ends up in Herbie and jewel thieves are going mad to get it. There are lots of funny people in this film , its great. Also 2 Race Car Drivers that give Jim a hard time , one in a Red Car , one in a Black Car.
Jim ends up falling in love with the Girl who drives the light-blue Lancia in the races the same Car Herbie falls in Love with , its so funny and sweat :) This has lots of cool and funny stuff in this movie, and the jewel thieves who seem to never get a break, I enjoy these Herbie films so much >

3.0 out of 5 stars not the best in the series July 30 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This movie was not what you would really call all that great in several respects. The believability, for one, hoovers around zero - the tunnel scene comes to mind. The characters really are not that great, either. The villainous inspector with his henchmen and the bumbling detective were funny in themselves but they were annoying, too. However, this movie in the Herbie series, was probably next-best to "The Love Bug" since Dean Jones is back and Don Knotts provides some classic scenes as well. Darcy is ok as well, but I found her character to be distracting and not all that necessary to the plot. If you want some laughs, this movie will provide them but don't expect anything very serious or believable.
