Simi Horwitz Film Journal International Swing State generally scores, and if it's any indication, Sheldon's next film should prove winning. Jan 12, 2017 Full Review Daniel M.

robbie v Good premise deserves a better script. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member "Swing State" is political comedy for those who don't want to be challenged or upset, but only want a chance to laugh at the foolishness too often on display in the real world. It's not the fimmaker's fault if reality has turned out to be even more bizarre than he could have possibly imagined. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a dumb idea poorly executed. The worst writing of any film I have seen in the last year at least. The dialogue is stupid. The acting is pathetic. Beh looks like a fool. The movie is sexist and instead of being satirical is really just bad. The director could not save the terrible writing. Taryn Manning should pretend she never did this film. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member What happened to these actors? Why? This is an awful movie. Everything about it is really bad. The writing, acting and directing are shameful. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member What an obvious and played narrative. Not even famous actors could save this mess of a script from crashing and burning. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Been meaning to write this review. I saw this at a joke of a "film festival" and this movie was the worst movie I have ever seen. The dialogue is awful. The directing made the whole thing worse. It's really a catastrophe of a movie. Who would invest in this movie or distribute it? It's just dumb. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Read all reviews
