I think this movie was well written and put together however there are some really boring parts in this movie that should not be there. I think that movie needs to Entertain a little more. Overall I think it should get 4 stars!

This movie was really terrible. I can not say who was worse. Costner, the kid who played his daughter, Kelsey Grammer, or the terrible script. The production company I think it's called 1821 pictures, really must be run by morons.

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 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!!

Washington Post
The film's not nearly as idiotic as its trailer made it seem, because it's not really about voting, or politics. Full Review

Philadelphia Inquirer
Swing Vote is messy and its targets are relatively safe. But its aim is true. And Costner's performance hits the bull's-eye. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
This reasonably entertaining movie falters by trying to be both a dark comedy and a sentimental treatise on family and country. Full Review
Dana Stevens
Swing Vote isn't exactly a toothless political satire. It's something worse: a satire with dentures. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Swing Vote marries mild satire with Capra-esque melodrama in a formula that works surprisingly well. Full Review
