The presidential race is in a tie, and one single vote is going to decide the outcome. After an election day glitch keeps his vote from being counted, an underachieving single dad (Kevin Costner) has 10 days to recast his vote and he becomes an international celebrity, courted by the media and the candidates (Kelsey Grammer and Dennis Hopper). Meanwhile his 12-year-old daughter (Madeline Carroll) -- the smarter of the two -- tries to keep him focused on the importance of his decision. Also with Nathan Lane, Stanley Tucci and George Lopez. Directed by Joshua Stern. [1:40]
