Not for younger children

Not a good family movie if you have younger children.

Too much violence

Sexual innuendo and drinking not mentioned in the review.

I was surprised to come across several scenes that included drinking alcohol; one character becomes drunk and then Herbie also suffers a "hangover." There was no mention of this in the review. Also there is sexual innuendo beginning with the main character gazing at a woman's legs. The main male and female characters are suggested to go "park" and then are driven there by Herbie. Later in the movie the two characters go on a date and end up back at the same spot and share a dramatic moment and a romantic kiss. Other cars are also parked in these scenes. After races are won, "trophy women" stand next to the victor and there are many kisses exchanged. The race scenes entertained my children, but this is not a movie we will be returning to. The subtle sexual content and alcohol aren't worth the entertainment value.
