5.0 out of 5 stars SHE HAD TATTOOS, BOB!, April 12, 2013
This review is from: Butter (Amazon Instant Video)
Bob (Ty Burrell) has been the Iowa state butter sculptor champion for 15 years straight, making fine sculptures such as "The Last Supper" and "Newt on a Horse." The state fair has politely asked him to step aside and let someone else win. His overly straight, June Clever clone, wife Laura (Jennifer Garner) with a foul mouth objects and decides to carry on the family tradition and enter the contest herself. Her step daughter is excellently played by Ashley Greene. Bob seeks comfort in a stripper/prostitute (Olivia Wilde) who gets involved with the contest and also has some great swagger music.

Meanwhile a young 10 year old African-American girl, Destiny (Yara Shahidi), is bounced around foster homes. She is overly mature and has taken a shine to butter sculpturing, which her foster parents (Alicia Silverstone and Rob Corddry) encourage, but think is a bit odd. I think you can guess the where this competition is going.

The film is exceedingly funny as it satirizes American life, yet at the same time has heart without being too drippy or a chick flick. The script had great characters, even minor characters such as Carol Ann played by the always comical Kristen Schaal. A great film for the adults, and might make a good date night flick. The end has a blooper reel. The outtakes and extended scenes are worth a peek, but not as good as the main feature.

Parental Guide: F-bombs, sex, girl/girl action. No nudity.
