Becky and I went to see the new Kevin Costner film
“Bud Johnson (Kevin Costner), an apathetic, beer-slinging, lovable loser, is coasting through a life that has passed him by. The one bright spot is his precocious, over-achieving 12-year-old daughter Molly. She takes care of both of them, until one mischievous moment on Election Day, when she accidentally sets off a chain of events which culminates in the election coming down to one vote her dads.”
Swing Vote Must Love Dogs is a somewhat predictable film once you’ve seen the trailer for the movie. Kevin Costner’s character is a good ol’ boy who likes to drink and have fun, but has zero responsibility when it comes to life and raising his daughter as a single father. He doesn’t believe in the political process and he avoids anything that might require him to be a role model or good citizen.
His daughter on the other hand is well beyond her years and she believes in the political process and the importance of exercising the right to vote. The film takes you into the world of Bud and his daughter Molly, along with two political candidates, one of which is the current Republican President and asks how far politicians will compromise their personal values to win the Oval Office.
We all thought Swing Vote was a great flick. Even if you’re not a politically motivated person or you don’t like Kevin Costner you should like this movie. It is very entertaining and heart wrenching at times as you see some of the challenges facing Americans today as portrayed in this film.
We all liked Swing Vote and thought it was worth the price of admission.
