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

...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.

The blend between surreal satire and sentiment isn't always comfortable but the set-up is intriguing and Costner nails the part.

Swing Vote is a benign but telling satire.

This light satire is unlikely to influence the forthcoming election, but Costner's in fine fettle.

Absurdity's a crucial trait of Costner films (The Postman? Message In A Bottle?), so hold the exasperated sigh.

A rocky start aside, this blend of timely political satire and father/daughter heart warmer offers enough truth about media manipulation and voter pandering to win over an undemanding audience.

Unlikely premise, yet script offers dialogue, heart-tugs, actual intelligent thought and a fair and necessary reflection on the State elections in the Union. A pleasant film.

Goofball Bud Johnson is such a funny, undemanding guy and his daughter such a pre-teen chip of gold, whatever ticket they're running on... I swing their way.

It's funny, sad, involving, and very well made. This is one of the big surprises of the summer.

This gentle, philosophical movie gets my vote for an entertaining pre-election thought-provoker.

August 3, 2008
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.
