THE LOVE BUG (Released to Theaters USA 1968)

Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì 

The Love Bug—the first of Herbie Volkswagen films—introduces the concept of a small car with a mind of its own and a very likable personality. The film hallmarks movies that can be shared by the entire family. The casting department teams Dean Jones and Buddy Hackett who deliver sweet, clean comedy. Actress Michele Lee and the Mary Poppins Actor David Tomlinson fill out the rest of the movie’s main cast. This movie makes a good addition to the family home video library. It has not lost its ability to entertain despite the passage of time.
