Dale R This is the second movie about the lovable sentient Volkswagen Beetle. I did enjoy this one, but if you didn’t like The Love Bug then I can’t recommend this one. Once again there are goofy points to the movie and it obviously is targeting a younger demographic. The ending is really dumb, but comparable to the previous installment of the franchise. What carries this movie is Keenan Wynn who plays the villain. It really is his movie and for someone who is obviously the villain from the moment you see him, he does a good job. In The Love Bug, I did enjoy the uniqueness of Herbie, but this movie throws that uniqueness out the window in many ways and I didn’t like that. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 07/07/24 Full Review Miguel B Gostei do Crossover com o vilão de o fantástico super homem , Alonzo hawk indicando se os filmes se passam no mesmo universo Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/07/23 Full Review christopher c. m I wonder if this Alonzo Hawk is the same Alonzo Hawk from "The Absent Minded Professor"? The same actor plays him in both movies, but in "The Absent Minded Professor" he was in the prepossession business, here he's a Donald Trump real estate jerk. Makes me wonder if the parallels to Trump was on purpose or strange coincidence? It is a tad slow in the middle and had some blue screen issues. But overall, it's a classic and worth checking out. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Muito divertido, um dos melhores da franquia! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Liam D It's a very wacky sequel with one of the weirdest sequences in any Disney movies I've ever seen Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 07/25/22 Full Review Audience Member This is the second movie about the lovable sentient Volkswagen Beetle.
