BUTTER is a hoot!,
This review is from: Butter (Blu-ray + DVD) (Blu-ray)
Cut from a similar cloth as BEST IN SHOW, writer Jason Micallef's BUTTER is a hysterical, twisted, political comedy that pokes fun at the folks in Iowa to whom butter carving is their whole life.
When long-reigning champion butter sculptor Ty Burrell is asked to step aside, obsessive wife Jennifer Garner decides to enter the state contest herself in order to maintain the family's "butter spotlight". However, her virtually guaranteed win is thwarted when the talented Yara Shahidi, a ten-year-old African American orphan, enters the competition and wins the hearts of the judges. Also competing, if only to irk Garner, is stripper/hooker Olivia Wilde, who had a fling with Burrell and is now stalking him for the money she says he owes her.
Garner is determined to win the state contest, thus she seduces her dense former boy friend, Hugh Jackman, to do some dirty tricks in order to insure her victory.
Deftly directed by Jim Field Smith, the talented cast includes Alicia Silverstone and Rob Corddry as Yara's adoptive parents and Ashley Greene.
The Blu-Ray/DVD Combo Pack from Anchor Bay Entertainment includes a gag reel, plus deleted and extended scenes.
BUTTER is a hoot!
