HERBIE RIDES AGAIN (Released to Theaters USA 1974)

Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì 

Herbie Rides Again—cute—is not quite as good as the previous film in this series, but still manages as a clean story for the whole family that noticeably wears the Walt Disney brand of family entertainment, It relies on Ken Berry (from Mayberry R.F.D.) to drive its story and has a good portrayal, presentation, and well-written story. This film belongs in the family home video library and makes a great family-share movie.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. This is a good watch even though the original cast did not reprise their roles. This is an entirely new Herbie story that involves more mechanical objects with personalities of their own. But this does not hurt the film’s ability to deliver a family-worthy entertainment piece.
