Herbie, the Volkswagen Beetle with a mind of its own, is racing in the Monte Carlo Rally. Unbeknownst to Herbie's driver, thieves have hidden a cache of stolen diamonds in Herbie's gas tank, and are now trying to get them back.
Jim Douglas and his partner Bo ran a small driving school with a very "human" Volkswagen Beetle named Herbie, who could think for "himself" and frequently got Jim into some sticky comic ... See full summary »
Race car driver, Jim Douglas goes to Monte Carlo to enter his car, Herbie, in the Monte Carlo rally. When they get there, Herbie falls for another driver's car and Jim falls for the driver Diane, who thinks he's weird. But what they don't know is that a pair of thieves who stole a very valuable diamond, hid it in Herbie's gas tank. And the thieves try to get it back.Written by
The car that Herbie falls in love with is a 1977 Lancia Montecarlo. See more »
At the first qualifying round when Herbie is pivoting to watch the Lancia pull up to the finish line, his wheels don't roll like they're supposed to, indicating that he's on a turning platform. See more »
We've lost our car, and we'd like to know if you've seen it by any chance.
Who cares about your silly Volkswagen? My Lancia has been stolen!
[points to Diane]
Uh, your car.
[then points over to Jim and Wheely]
And your car.
I saw them both.
Then you saw who stole them?
You would not believe this. I would not believe this. No one would believe this.

Vincent McEveety took over directing duties on this third "Herbie" film that sees Dean Jones return as Jim Douglas, who has regained possession of Herbie, and has entered a Paris to Monte Carlo road race with help from his friend Wheely Applegate(played by Don Knotts). Trouble starts when jewel thieves hide a stolen jewel in Herbie's gas tank(located in a spot never seen before or since!) Herbie has also fallen in love with a light-blue Lancia car also in the race, which is a distraction Jim didn't need... Nice to see Dean Jones return, though the unexplained absence of both Buddy Hackett and Michele Lee is annoying. Really no better or worse than the previous film, with equally silly plot elements.
