A MUST-HAVE FOR SOAP FANS - Soap Opera Dig
Rising advertising exec Joel Goodman (Rick Hearst) is in a race with his co-worker Tom (Sean Kanan) to nab the coveted corner office an office vacated by a high-ranking colleague who literally worked himself to death! There is just one problem getting to work on time! The only thing standing between him and his new digs is mile after mile of LA traffic. Desperate, Joel hires a homeless man, Oliver Fasst (Anthony Geary), as his E-ticket to the most coveted ride in town the carpool lane.
But it turns out that, despite his tumbledown appearance, Carpool Guy knows a thing or two about business. And soon he s steering Joel out of his longtime traffic jam and onto a road that will prove successful for Joel in both his professional and personal life.

It was great to see soap opera stars on the big screen in a really good movie. The movie puts Rick Hearst in traffic frustrated each day about getting to work, but he discovers a unique way to overcome this adversity. With twists and turns and humor Jeanne Cooper and Tony Geary add to the very funny story line that some of us do live. Other soap stars add their best efforts to make us all glad we saw this very funny movie!

I thought that Carpool Guy was a great "feel-good" movie. The entire cast did an outstanding job. A perfect example of the range of talent that some soap opera stars have. In particular, Rick Hearst was fabulous as Joel Goodman. He was cute, funny, dramatic and brave all at the same time. He was so natural in this role. In fact, I hope to see more of him on the big screen. He so belongs there!!!

Corbin Bernsen did a great job with this comedy. Definitely a movie that I would pay to see in theaters. He should continue to make many more movies. If you like a good story, that is light-hearted and funny, you'll enjoy Carpool Guy! And Carpool Guy is one way to experience the acting chops of one Rick Hearst - - he is beyond talented!

See the movie and buy the DVD; you won't be sorry!

What a fun, good time movie. Excellent production quality, good story, my favorite actors, a terrific director. Wish Nancy Lee Grahn and Wally Kurth had been in it, too. Hope this gets wide distribution so non-soap people can enjoy it and see the amazing range of talent on daytiime TV. More, Corbin, more, please!

Soap operas and those who star in them are often unfairly stereotyped. Yet, well known entertainers from primetime and film like Carol Burnett, Elizabeth Taylor and Julia Roberts are admitted soap fans. There must be more to daytime than meets the eye, right? Carpool Guy answers that question with a resounding, "Yes!" It's a highly entertaining and hysterically funny movie. Everyone can identify with the plot (especially if you are at all familiar with the advertising industry) and there's something here for everyone to enjoy.

The cast of characters perfectly compliments the lead, Joel (Rick Hearst), as he searches for the coveted balance between a successful career and family life. When a ladder-climbing opportunity inspires him to take some creative but drastic measures in order to compete, the movie takes you along for the ride with some surprising twists and a few life lessons along the way.

If you're not familiar with the stars from daytime, I urge you to haul out the popcorn, sit back, relax and check out some outstanding performances. Rick Hearst is well cast and on the money as Joel Goodman, a character everyone can embrace and relate to! There are hysterical performances by Tony Geary, Kristoff St. John and Jeannie Cooper, just to name a few. Additionally, the DVD contains some fascinating and funny extra sections about the making of the movie. I hope that Carpool Guy is the first of many Corbin Bernsen's projects showcasing daytime talent. If so, there's a lot to look forward to!

Carpool Guy takes everyday frustrations of commuting and trying to move up at work, and turns them into a fun and entertaining movie that most people can identify with. With the killer traffic in the LA area, Rick Hearst's character, "Joel" needs to find a way to get to work earlier without sacrificing his family life. Solution - hire a homeless man (Anthony Geary) to ride with him to and from work so that he can use the carpool lane. The twists and turns that come from this agreement result in more laughs than most of today's blockbuster films.

This movie was excellent from start to finish! I'm not saying that just because I'm biased because my favorite soap stars are in it, it is just really that good! This is a movie that if Hollywood would just realize that soap stars can do so much more... this movie should be a box office hit!

I saw it in St Louis at the premiere and also purchased the DVD. I recommend this to anyone who loves soaps and comedy!

Corbin did a wonderful job on this film!

I'm a soap fan, but even my husband loved it. We then had friends over and insisted on watching it again for us, and for them to see...did this with several friends. And they all loved it and laughed! After having worked in the television advertising business for 18 years, I could really relate..Also with the driving in Los Angeles. That dummy sure looked inviting, and even the bum! Clever Clever Clever! A must see.

Carpool guy gave me a chance to see some of my favorite daytime actors in another role. I was surprised when I actually realised that I was enjoying the movie without once thinking of Rick as Ric but really seeing him as Joel and the same for Tony not beeing Luke etc. This was a better movie then I expected and better then some things out in theaters right now. I recommend it for anyone who need a couple of hours of escape and laughter.
