Butter

There's going to be a meltdown!


Butter
A tale of competition at its most cut-throat, set in the razor-edged world of butter carving. (Yes.) We follow the wife of Iowa's long-reigning champion butter carver. For 15 years, she has relished her high-profile role as the beautiful, loyal helpmate to her affable, artistically gifted husband. But when he is pressured to retire and allow someone else a chance at glory, she decides to enter the competition herself. She is first in line on sign-up day, only to see her odds of victory fall below 100% with the arrival of an unlikely yet formidable contender: a 10-year-old African-American foster child. Things heat up even more when her husband's would-be mistress, as well as his biggest fan, both also enter.

Tomatometer quote iconDespite its talented cast and a few funny moments, Butter's satirical aims are largely undone by a lack of subtlety and air of smugness.
