Overview

When the mischievous antics of a precocious 12-year-old girl result in the outcome of the United States presidential election hinging on the vote of her apathetic, likable loser of a father, the man who thought that life had long since passed him by is reluctantly thrust into the national spotlight in this political-themed comedy starring Kevin Costner. Bud Johnson Costner is your typical American -- a simple man and loving father who never would have thought he had the power to change the world. Though when election day finally arrives and Bud prepares to cast his ballot, his overachieving daughter Molly proves to be the catalyst for a stunning series of events that place the fate of the free world in the hands of a man more comfortable slinging cases of beer -- her father. The two candidates are portrayed by Dennis Hopper and Kelsey Grammer, with Nathan Lane and Stanley Tucci as their campaign managers. George Lopez also stars as a local TV-station manager who has to deal with the political factions as they set up camp in the small town.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Anyone with a basic understanding of election procedures knows that the American presidency can't be decided by a single voter; even if one county is tied, as in Swing Vote, it's the statewide popular count that determines which candidate receives the electoral votes see Florida, 2000. But Joshua Michael Stern's film isn't going for plausibility. It's a full-on satire, taking literally the idea that every vote counts, and whatever prejudices Kevin Costner may inspire in a viewer, they don't prevent Stern's script co-written with Jason Richman from hitting some bull's-eyes. Politicians have always been accused of changing their positions as a means of pandering to an ever-changing base, but when that base is a single voter, it inspires a number of funny send-ups of political advertising -- like the Republican candidate Kelsey Grammer appearing alongside gay soldiers marrying, or the Democrat Dennis Hopper showing up on a playground where children are being zapped out of existence because they were aborted. The reason for these flip-flops is that Costner's Bud Johnson doesn't himself know what he wants; his naïve response to whether he's pro-life is "Yeah, of course, who isn't?" Because Grammer and Hopper are both card-carrying members of the GOP -- and both appeared in the heavily right-wing An American Carol -- there's a temptation to look for a conservative agenda in Swing Vote. Truth be told, it isn't there, and despite a rocky and broad beginning, Swing Vote ultimately reveals itself as an earnest supporter of the political process. What's more, it actually has heart. Costner can do these redneck hayseeds named Bud in his sleep, but the real surprise here is his conscientious daughter, played by 12-year-old Madeline Carroll, whose screen presence is downright arresting. Like Bud Johnson himself, Swing Vote may not seem like much on the surface, but assuming it has nothing to say is akin to assuming that one vote doesn't count.

    Horrible Movie; Very Boring

    If your looking for a horrible, boring and annoying movie all in one this is the perfect pick. The best thing about the movie was the ending! Really the previews featured the best parts of the film and Bud Johnson's (Costner) daughter Molly (Carroll) is down right annoying. She is a fun-sucker and is one of the major problems in the movie. I understand her placement in the film, but why did the writers have to make her so irritating? On top of everything it took 45 minutes for the movie to get into the real plot. And it was slow all the way through. I watched it with my mother, who fell asleep, and my brothers, who ended up leaving because of Molly and her bothersome ways. The only way I'd watch this horrible film again is if I were paid or my life depended on it.
