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!

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

...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 film varies between ironic cynicism about the political process and overt whimsy and sentimentality.
September 26, 2008
The blend between surreal satire and sentiment isn't always comfortable but the set-up is intriguing and Costner nails the part.
September 26, 2008
Swing Vote is a benign but telling satire.
September 26, 2008
This light satire is unlikely to influence the forthcoming election, but Costner's in fine fettle.
September 25, 2008
Absurdity's a crucial trait of Costner films (The Postman? Message In A Bottle?), so hold the exasperated sigh.
August 17, 2008
The most underrated film of the year.

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.
August 11, 2008
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.
August 5, 2008
A surprisingly funny and astute satire of the two-party political system.

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.
August 4, 2008
It's funny, sad, involving, and very well made. This is one of the big surprises of the summer.
August 3, 2008
This gentle, philosophical movie gets my vote for an entertaining pre-election thought-provoker.
