November, 2004, New Mexico. Bud is a slacker with one good thing in his life, his engaging fifth-grade daughter Molly. On election day, Bud is supposed to meet her at the polling place. When he doesn't show, she sneaks a ballot and is about to vote when the power goes off. It turns out that New Mexico's electoral votes will decide the contest, and there it's tied with one vote needing recasting - Bud's. The world's media and both presidential candidates, including the current President, descend on Bud in anticipation of his re-vote in two weeks. Can the clueless Bud, even with the help of Molly and a local TV reporter, handle this responsibility?Written by

I can understand fully why this Kevin Costner movie fell so far under the radar, if the man has any sense he put it there!
It's not that it's a bad film, it's just a mediocre one with one of the most offensively ridiculous concepts of all time.
So we have Bud, a redneck and all round failure at life (Especially to his daughter). His daughter registers him to vote but then due to a fault with the voting booth he becomes the "Swing" voter. Namely this hick has the single handed decision who becomes the President of the United States.
Yep, THAT dumb.
Despite a great cast including Costner, Patton, Tucci, Hopper & Grammer this is a foolish movie.
Yes it is highly accurate in it's presentation of politics but lacks in the comedy and simply isn't as dramatic as it aims to be.
One for hardcore Costner fans only.
Laughable representation of the Republican party
Concept is ridiculous
Too much FOX "News"
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
The writers were high on weed when writing the script and somewhere along the way someone was high on crack for giving it the green light!
