Swing Vote 2008

Small-town loser Bud Johnson (Costner) has one good thing in his life—his precocious 12-year-old daughter Molly (Carroll). But the overachieving youngster sets in motion an unlikely series of events on Election Day that results in the presidential election coming down to a single deciding vote—Bud's. A cinema fairytale indeed since the first thing a candidate would scream for is a recount (and isn't there that whole electoral college thing going on?). Hey, it's gotta be more fun than the actual 2008 presidential race. Not yet reviewed. ?m/C Kevin Costner, Dennis Hopper, Nathan Lane, Kelsey Grammer, Madeline Carroll, Stanley Tucci, George Lopez, Judge Reinhold, Paula Patton, Mare Winningham; D: Joshua Michael Stern; W: Jason Richman, Joshua Michael Stern; C: Shane Hurlbut; M: John Debney.
