"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!"

"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!

"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!"
Carpool Guy - Great "feel-good" 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!"
