Although this movie is a little predictable, I really enjoyed the portrayal of Bud and his daughter, two average Americans in a small town. In most movies, the "All American Average Joe" is way better-looking, better-spoken and lives in a much nicer home than you'd find in reality. However, in this film, Kevin Costner got to skip washing his hair for a few days, his on-screen daughter looked like a real kid, they lived in a sorta-messy trailer, and they talked, for the most part, like real people do.
It managed to be comedic, even while dealing with important issues. I laughed really hard at the candidate's not-so-subtle attempts to influence Bud, and especially enjoyed their TV commercials.
A great movie for any election season. I'd definitely watch it again.
