  1. Costner (who's also a producer) plays to his middle-aged strengths in a role that exaggerates male weaknesses.

    The longer Swing Vote hangs around, the more engaging it becomes. It's twice as smart as you have any reason to expect but still only half as smart as you wish it were.

    The movie is a genial comedy, but it has significant undertones. Like some of Frank Capra's pictures.
