Herbie was really about what I expected from it.  It's hard to slam a movie that pretty much delivers what it promises.  There were many worse movies last year, mostly the horribly edited to get PG-13 ratings horror movies.  I was glad for once to see actual R-rated comedies.  If we could get back to R-rated horror movies.

There were many more PG-13....Ring II, Boogeyman, Cursed, Cry_Wolf, Dark Waters, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, The Skeleton Key, etc.

I'm not saying PG-13 is necessarily a bad thing, except when they are editted down just to get that rating to "increase their appeal".  

There was an interesting article in Entertainment Weekly about the bait and switch tactics of Hollywood these days.  Most people know that if horror and comedies are released with PG-13 ratings, that inevitably there will be the unrated DVD release.  Why see these water downed versions in theaters?

I think the only reason that they do the PG-13 ratings for horror films is because that more and more teens are getting to enjoy horror. Maybe it's just me, but I like comedy better than horror and I'm a teen.

I wouldn't say it was to increase their appeal - it is simply so they can make more money out of it....
