2 stars; rated PG-13
The presidential election comes down to one vote in this sloppy, sluggish, crowd-pleaser wanna-be. Kevin Costner is rakishly charming as Bud Johnson, often drunk factory worker, poor father to Molly (Madeline Carroll) and the center of all the attention. Kelsey Grammer and Dennis Hopper are the contenders in the presidential race, with assists from Stanley Tucci and Nathan Lane. The strained premise and Crayola satire wear out their welcome, but the very indulgent will find a scattering of nice moments. 119 minutes. DVD INFO: Includes a commentary track, a making-of featurette and a music video by Costner's band.
