The Worst Thing Ever
You may remember my review of Herbie: Fully Loaded harping on one particular effects shot that I found over the top. All the interviews with effects people talk about how they had rules where they would only animate the car at pre-existing pivot points as opposed to "bending metal" effects. Of course, they couldn't resist breaking the rule for "one golden moment." That's the one that comes close to ruining the whole movie for me if I don't willfully ignore it.
I finally found a screenshot of it online, so everyone but Cynthia can now see for yourself. What a stupid effect. Plus, the graphics on the door are the graphics for NASCAR Herbie, which Herbie doesn't have yet in this scene. So there's a continuity error, too.
