This movie is not Tom Arnold movie. They have the same name but this movie is about four people who find money and don't know what to do with it. It's pretty funny. Sweet and charming. This is your typical movie bout being at the right place at the wrong time. Finders keepers, losers weepers!

Yes, it's a Tom Arnold movie, yes, it's 14 years old, but it holds up in its silliness. A fun family movie with strong kid characters who stand by the "bad" guy, the Tom Arnold character, who ends up carjacking a van with the kids and their strait-laced father (David Paymer), after stealing a bag of money from some bank robbers. There are many car chases -- the best is IN a shopping mall. Arnold is at his best in niceness as a carnival owner who needs money. This was also one of Rod Steiger's last movies, who really shines toward the end as a grumpy, wealthy store owner (who loves chocolate donuts -- is that a product link?). Above all this is one silly, silly-movie -- and that is good! (Oh, a good running joke for adults -- we keep hearing the Ramones' "I Wanna Be Sedated" playing on the van's tape (!) deck.)

This is one of the most hilarious movies I have seen in a long time and definitely worth buying. Good clean comedy with a great story line and good character interaction. However it would be great if AMAZON.COM and AMAZON.UK would STOP ADVERTISING WHAT THEY DO NOT HAVE!!!!!! This is the third time I bought this only to get an anoying message telling me that my orer has been cancelled due to some availability problem. I realise the communication to resellers is tricky at the best of times, but this is rediculous!!!!

8/31/03 The video was a "better than average" video with many action scenes of "police car chase" due to a robbery interceded by Tom Arnold who was just looking for a "donut" and ended with the money instead of the real robbers..Arnold's character also ends up with a hostage (who was carpooling and had come into the store just to get bread and roll and Danish buns)with no casualty,just more demolition work for the mechanics..Emphasis was on "small town" which had a Mall,a Sizzler,(mention of a Denny,a Gourmet Food Market,a Carnival(belonging to Arnold which had closed),a very active Barber Shop-Beauty Salon(where the hostage(a middle management executive),the kids he's car-pooling:(5): adolescent to teen) and of course the man with the gun "Arnold" purchased hair dye in aerosol cans to spray the "Van" purple vs its recently commercial paint job of green) and almost as many employees who are "policemen" as were those who would need "one'.Even the meter maid had a "state of the arts vehicle" : both her vehicle and the vehicle being pursued cars maneuvered right up the steps inside the Mall..It ends with a teen reminding the "Mogul" that the adult population in the "small town"is getting old & "moving to Florida" or "permanently exiting to Forest Lawn Cemetary" [exception being those toteing their own gun like one of the very gutzy little "Arsenic and Old Lace" ladies in the Gourmet Shop /or like Arnold's mother whom he talked to on the Beauty Salon phone and warned her not to go to the Sizzler's.Read more ›

Carpool is one of those old movies that just managed to fly under my radar, and I was happy to have discovered it on Amazon. The mix of each character's particular desperation was well developed in concept and presentation. Chuck McCann, in particular, shines as the inept and corrupt cop! If you are looking for some light entertainment that is appropriate for the entire family, you won't go wrong with Carpool.
