Herbie Rides Again Review

For Families provided by Common Sense Media

OK for kids 6+

Kids will love this gentle, slapstick love bug.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that although this movie's humor is tame by today's standards, the slapstick silliness will still amuse children 6 and up. Younger kids will be amused by the loveable car, but some of the action may require an explanation. Older kids will enjoy the thrilling chases and the zany humor. And who can resist a spunky car who champions the helpless?

  • Families can talk about how this film shows no visible seatbelt use; kids should be reminded that they weren't universally available or legally required at the time.
