terrific!
18 March 2006 | by mattkratzSee all my reviews

This was a refreshingly funny movie. The cast (consisting of mainly soap opera actors and actresses) was right on the money, and Rick Hearst and Anthony Geary were perfectly cast and made for a funny comedic duo. Hearst plays an advertising executive who always gets in trouble for being late to work and home, in part because he always gets stuck in traffic. His solution:he pays homeless Vietnam Vet Geary to ride with him so he can use the HOV lane. This works for a while until Geary turns out to be not what he seems. The same can be said for some of Hearst's co-workers and acquaintances. Overall, I found this movie to be consistently funny, and I recommend it.

*** out of ****
