Kevin Costner stars in Swing Vote, a clever, feel-good "landslide comedy winner. So funny and inspiring you'll stand up and cheer!" (Pete Hammond, Hollywood.com) Bud Johnson's an ordinary dad drifting through life, caring about nothing except his overachieving daughter Molly. Trying to encourage him to get involved, Molly accidentally sets off a chain of events on Election Day that ends with the presidential race coming down to one vote, Bud's. Comedic chaos ensues as Kelsey Grammer, Dennis Hopper, Nathan Lane, Stanley Tucci and George Lopez give all-star support in a witty and uplifting film that's "charming, funny, smart, touching and profound!" (Scott Mantz, Access Hollywood).

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: One of the most surprising, politically suggestive movies to come out of Hollywood this year.
Rotten: One minute you're laughing at its sendup of the political process, and the next you're stricken by the sorry state of the sweet and brainy protagonist's family.
Rotten: It's a sentiment Capra might well have echoed, though he would surely have punched up the gags while he was at it.
Rotten: It is neither appreciably better nor dramatically worse than its hokey, please-describe-me-as-'Capraesque' premise.
Good Rental....Thats a hint I-tunes.
I wouldn't say it's a great movie to buy, unless your a diehard fan of kevin, but it would actually be a pretty good movie to rent, if itunes ever gave us that option.
A great comedy. Sheds light on politics of today, granted in a greater proportion then today, but we're headed this direction.
Wasnt the best
I have seen this movie in movie theathers, and it wasnt the best. Watching it once maybe with a daughter and father might be a good idea, but overall I dont think this is a movie your going to want to watch more than once. I dont think its worth paying 14.99 for this, or to pre-order: it would be a better idea to spend the money on a better movie.
