Armando Moccia Reception Herbie Goes Bananas met with negative reviews and is widely considered to be the weakest film in the Herbie franchise.  Most film critics remarked that the series had run its course, with Leonard Maltin commenting that there was one amusing scene where the VW turns matador; otherwise, strictly scrap metal.
" Maltin (who rated the film ½ out of) added that the plot dealt with its cast "encountering all sorts of'hilarious' obstacles along the way.  Rotten Tomatoes gave at the film a note of 40% positives reviews. Cars The prop Herbie dropped into the ocean was never retrieved.A total of 26 VW Beetles were used, by reason of the quantity of stunts and tricks.

MOVIE REVIEW DISNEY RIDES AGAIN By JANET MASLIN Published: September 12, 1980''HERBIE Goes Bananas,'' now playing at the Embassy 2 and other theaters, is a cheerful, four-cylinder children's movie, though its car jokes aren't good for much mileage. Herbie the Volkswagen, last seen in Monte Carlo, is now in South America, as the title may or may not indicate.
This allows him to get into a bullfight, for the movie's most inspired episode, and to fall into the sea and get rusty, for its saddest. His adventures aren't much more far-flung than this, but fortunately they move fast. Included in the cast of''Herbie Goes Bananas'' are Harvey Korman, Cloris Leachman and Charles Martin Smith.
Smith, who played Terry the Toad in''American Graffiti,'' may have had difficulty in finding follow-up roles, but he too fits into the Disney format just fine. The plot revolves around the antics of a cute child, a Mexican waif (Joaquin Garay 3d) who makes his living as a pickpocket, but confesses adorably that (a) he is an orphan, and (b) he would rather not steal. Smith and a band of smugglers (led by John Vernon and Alex Rocco) in the film's opening scenes, he binds all the principals together for an hour-and-a-half of merry intrigue. The cast is filled out by a pair of ingenues, played by Stephan Burns and Elyssa Davalos, who are a wee bit sappier than the others. Burns has the movie's most memorable line, as he removes Miss Davalos's horn-rims and pith helmet she's supposed to be a Ph.Candidate to discover she is really a raving beauty. She's not like all the other girls he knows, Mr.'For one thing, you don't giggle when there's nothing funny.' Young Pickpocket HERBIE GOES BANANAS, directed by Vincent McEveety; written by Don Tait, based on charactaers created by Gordon Buford; director of photography, Frank Phillips; edited by by Gordon D.
Brenner; music by Frank De Vol; produced by Ron Miller; presented by Walt Disney Productions; distributed by the Buena Vista Distribution Company. At the Embassy 2, 46th Street and Seventh Avenue.
This film is rated G. Joaquin Garay 3d Captain Blythe. As a little kid of the'70s, my movie moments were exemplifed by going to the long lamented Sunniland Movie Theater and watching whatever Disney live-action product I could find.
As far back as I can possibly remember, we'd go see nearly every Disney film that came down the pike. They were usually double-billed with a classic animated feature or short, and they made for some smashing entertainment... I have fond memories of seeing Candleshoe, Escape From With Mountain (and its sequel), Freaky Friday, Unidentified Flying Oddball (double-billed with The Jungle Book, clearly one of those magical movie moments), The Black Hole, and each and every Herbie film in existence: The Love Bug, Herbie Rides Again, Herbie Goes To Monte Carlo, and the last of the Herbie sequels, Herbie Goes Bananas. I loved Herbie to death.
After Dumbo, he's probably my favorite Disney creation of all time. But while the first film is just an absolute hoot of a movie, the sequels were, for the most part, pretty dopey. Herbie Rides Again was OK, but Ken Berry and Stephanie Powers couldn't hold a candle to Dean Jones and Michele Lee. And where the hell were Buddy Hackett and the freakin' racing bear? Herbie Goes To Monte Carlo brought Dean Jones back into the fray and threw in Don Knotts for good measure, but the film was a pretty weak rehash of the original.
Which brings us to Herbie Goes Bananas. This film is emblematic of everything that was wrong with much of Disney's live action product in the'70s. Simply put: it's horrifically cheesy, and not in an endearing way.The plot finds Pete Stanchek, the nephew of Dean Jones's character from the original, and his pal Davie Johns in Mexico, picking up Herbie on their way to a race in Brazil. While signing for the anthropomorphic little Volkswagen at a local port, they find themselves the victims of a brutally annoying little puke named Paco, a homeless orphan and pickpocket who finds himself in trouble when he also nicks a wallet from a group of jewel thieves containing some kind of secret negatives that hold the location of a vast Incan treasure horde. Paco hides inside Herbie's luggage compartment, evading La Migra and... No, I'm just kidding. Somehow they all end up in a "Love Boat" wannabe with Harvey Korman and Cloris Leachman, but then they make Herbie walk the plank, his screams of terror apparently lost on the cold-hearted curs of the ocean.
Then Paco and Herbie end up in Panama, and Paco ends up giving the poor VW a paint job and employs the car as slave labor. Then Herbie gets in a bullfight, while the two original protagonists Pete and Davie, remember them? Run around and fall about in cheap physical gags that are more embarrassing to watch than the director's cut of Perfect.
There's not much in terms of plot, little in terms of entertainment, and nothing in terms of redeeming value. It's not like the original film is some sort of Fellini-esque masterpiece, but man, compared to Herbie Goes Bananas it's like watching La Stradaor something.
This sequel is just a freaky mess, and in fact violates several critical articles of the Geneva Convention. After watching this turdburger I felt like Colonel Braddock with the rat bag over his head. Not even the presence of John Who delivered the medical school cadavers to the alumni dinner?
Vernon and Alex "I was making my bones while you were going out with cheerleaders" Rocco as the two main baddies does anything to assuage this litany of misery. The damn kid gives Herbie a vomitous paintjob that stays there for more than half the movie! A wretched and short-lived television series followed a few years later, while a made-for-TV remake appeared in 1997, starring Bruce Campbell and directed by Bring It On's Peyton Reed. It now looks like Disney is going to remake The Love Bug again in 2005, this time set in the NASCAR world and starring Lindsay Lohan, who apparently comes equipped with her own airbags.I don't know if the end result is going to be worth a damn, but I'd bet the farm that it ends up a billion times more entertaining than Herbie Goes Bananas. The DVD Video: Herbie Goes Bananas is presented in a butchered fullscreen presentation. The film's original theatrical aspect ratio is 1.85:1, but I don't know if this transfer is pan-and-scan or open-matted. I'd lean towards P&S, as the picture looks sufficiently cropped throughout. Either way, it's not the original aspect ratio, and that's just wrong. The film suffers from some degradation in various film elements. Grain structure is fairly evident, but there's evidence of nicks and wears throughout. Weak blue screen shots and lousy stock footage make the film look worse than it is, as the image demonstrates reasonably strong color levels and detail. Overall, the transfer is neither impressively strong or sufficiently weak. It mostly looks good, but there are some evident flaws. The fullscreen aspect ratio pretty much ruins the entire affair, though. Audio: The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1.
There's nothing too dynamic or impressive in this soundtrack. Dialog levels are fine, while there is little expansion of the soundstage, directionality, or discreet imaging. The overall effect is pretty flat, with some occasional peaking in the surrounds. Otherwise, there's nothing here that couldn't have been adequately handled in a strong 2.0 track. Extras: Nothing, save for a preview trailer for other Disney DVD product.
Final Thoughts Run far, far away. Nothing to see here, just move along. Herbie Goes Bananas offers absolutely nothing for the Herbie fan, Disney completist, or general movie watcher. Add to this assertion the facts that the transfer is not the OAR and there are no extras to speak of whatsoever.
You're much better off watching the director's cut of Perfect with the sound turned off while listening to a Philip Michael Thomas album on your headphones. With the air conditioner turned off. While being pummeled with a bowling pin by a surly clown.
Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka In the fourth installment of the "Herbie" series of Volkswagen Bug fantasies, the magical car has lost a lot of its sheen as it is retreaded into a journey through Central America. (Charles Martin Smith) and Pete Stephan W.
Burns want to enter their supernatural car in a special, high-stakes race in Brazil. And so they set off driving with that goal in mind.Along the way the car ends up in a bullring playing the role of matador, the best of several incongruous adventures. Most audiences will still favor The Love Bug, the 1969 hit that spawned this third sequel. HERBIE GOES BANANAS The final sequel to date in Walt Disney's The Love Bug (1968) series, Herbie Goes Bananas (1980) doesn't feature Dean Jones, the star of the original, or any actual racing, but it does sport some genuine laughs, thanks to the comic pairing of Harvey Korman and Cloris Leachman. In this installment of the Herbie saga, Jim Douglas' nephew, Pete Stephen W. Burns, has inherited the car, which he and his friend D.
(Charles Martin Smith) have to retrieve from a mechanic in Mexico, in hopes of racing in the Brazilian Grand Prix. En route, they encounter cute pickpocket Paco (Joaquin Garay III), who nips Pete's wallet and some smugglers' film negatives, assuring that there will be mayhem in the future of all concerned, especially when the urchin stows away in Herbie. Meanwhile, Pete wines and dines Aunt Louise's shy anthropologist niece (Elyssa Davalos). Add in a Herbie plank-walking scene, a send-up of The Love Boat (the 1976 series pilot featured Korman and Leachman), a bull fight and Inca gold, and you have a Herbie movie quite unlike any of the others. John Vernon (Animal House, 1978) and Alex Rocco (The Godfather, 1972) show up as the persistent crooks, permanently foiled by Herbie.
Throughout Herbie Goes Bananas, number 53 is known only as "Ocho", a name given to him by Paco. Reportedly, 26 Volkswagen Beetles played the part of Herbie in the film, thanks to the many stunts. Com, at least some of the cars had up to four shocks on each wheel and high-backed front seats with screens in the headrests for the hidden back-seat drivers to see through. Following Herbie Goes Bananas, "Ocho" would be absent from the screen for 25 years, until Herbie Fully Loadedreanimated the little car with supernatural powers in 2005.
