    This reasonably entertaining movie falters by trying to be both a dark comedy and a sentimental treatise on family and country. show more

    Swing Vote is messy and its targets are relatively safe. But its aim is true. And Costner's performance hits the bull's-eye. show more

    Like the relationship of the father and daughter at time, was heartwarming and entertaining. But can't remember how he voted in the end, so guess it didn't hold my attention....lol....Buy on DVD

    Highlight of this movie was how it ended. Plot was very predictable.

    Great movie. Really illustrates how politicians will sway whichever way they need to whenever they need to. Funny, heartwarming and meaningful!!
