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.

Disney is NOT adding any features whatsoever for the Herbie, the Love Bug sequels. The only thing that could possibly be of any good quality within these discs would be a remastering of the picture and sound. Unless you've given up using your VCR or you are a collector, don't waste your time purchasing the Herbie sequels. Only the original movie, The Love Bug is worthy of it's "Special Edition" title.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Cute Movie!!! Jan. 23 2004
Format:DVD
I grew up watching these Live-action Disney movies that were made in the 70's and this is the only movie I have seen in the Herbie series and I fondly recall going to see Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo with my friends when I was about 12 years old and I thought it was such a cute movie and I really liked Dean Jones and Don Knotts and I recommend this movie. I see it is finally coming out on DVD. There is no information listed about if it's being released in widescreen or fullscreen but I hope it will include a widescreen version instead of just a pan and scan version!

5.0 out of 5 stars Herbie even falls in Love Nov. 14 2003
Format:VHS Tape
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 >
