A man who is stuck both literally and figuratively at a point in his life . Everything begins to change as he discovers more about himself upon meeting the "Carpool Guy".

I highly recommend this film! The acting and directing are very impressive. Corbin Bernsen has created a wonderful opportunity for the underrated actors of daytime by making this movie. It showcases the capabilities of these actors in a much different environment than we are used to seeing them in...and they are very funny in this movie. Kristoff St. John and Tony Geary are hilarious and Rick Hearst gives a wonderful performance as Joel. Carpool Guy is an absolute must-have for all soap fans! The inside soap jokes are a nice touch, but it is definitely an enjoyable movie not only for the soap fans, but for any fans of comedy.
