Costner pulls off the character of Bud, but the best parts of the film happen when he's just a redneck dude instead of the respectable citizen that he turns into.

This movie takes what could have been an incendiary, dangerous idea and waters it down to an impotent waste.

With Costner's yokel having a decided preference for being handed a beer rather than a ballot, he does a pretty darn good job of exposing the phony platitudes and pandering of candidates, in a movie about bad news politicians and even badder parenting.

The DVD and Blu-ray versions include the same extras, so just the picture and sound quality set them apart.
