Really good watch, would watch again, and can recommend. It's fun to see a callback to a movie like Herbie, and this certainly leans into it. This is also basically the last movie where Lindsay Lohan is still looks good on screen, or at least cute. Lohan and Herbie pretty much carry the movie despite some good supporting parts by the rest of the cast. While I'm used to seeing Justin Long playing a support role, and Matt Dillon is the "villain", it is a bit odd to see Michael Keaton play such a small, if appropriate, role. The unbelievability of Herbie being a racecar and the crazy amount of effort that is put into making Herbie a real character should be a downside of the movie, but it makes it remarkably charming in the best of ways.
