Swing Vote

I saw this movie over the weekend. Who doesn't like a Kevin Costner movie. He is basically your typical lower income guy with a daughter living in a trailor. His life consists of going to work and drinking and trying to maintain a life for his child. You can pretty much guess the plot of the movie, here is a guy in the middle of New Mexico who holds the deciding vote on who will be the next President. The movie is funny and sad but the saddest part is the very end when Bud starts talking to the two candidates on what the President should really be concerned with. If you just need to have a couple of hours where you have nothing else to do go see it but expect to come away with some thoughts that will make you think hard about who you vote for this year.
