Costner himself believes that Swing Vote echoes the emotion and sentiments of Bull Durham and Field of Dreams. I have to agree. So, come August 1, cast your vote for Swing Vote. It's a winner!

What keeps Swing Vote from being good isn't politics, it's lazy plot devices.

It's impossible to resist such a massive onslaught of resources, music, and transparent narrative shortcuts meant to persuade you to exercise your right to vote.

Swing Vote has its moments, especially when Grammer or Hopper are around, but it's trying to do too much ... there's so many ideas floating around in there, it all ends up being very shallow.

People like to make fun of Kevin Costner, and sometimes he deserves it. But when he gets his laid-back, rascally mojo going, he can become a most agreeable screen companion for a couple of hours

Swing Vote seems to be suggesting that the voter deserves a better class of candidate; allow me to suggest that the viewer deserves a better class of film.

...a thoroughly affable piece of work that makes up in easy-going entertainment what it lacks in plausibility.

It's a predictable, feel-good fantasy in the mould of a political satire and the result is a good one.

Goes for cheap laughs with its politics, but wins back at least some respect when it presents its central characters as real people and their issues as immune to instant cure.

I's unclear how we're supposed to respond.

It's a sentiment Capra might well have echoed, though he would surely have punched up the gags while he was at it.

A film that never seems entirely sure of what it's really about.

Costner does what he can with a role that is described as lovable, but I didn't find him so. Bud's a loser, nearly a bum, and even the expected turn-around didn't ring true for me.

Depictions of the spineless presidential hopefuls (Kelsey Grammer and Dennis Hopper) and their campaign managers (Stanley Tucci and Nathan Lane, respectively) offer standard-issue political satire.
