When long-reigning champion butter sculptor Bob is forced to step down, his zealous wife Laura enters the competition herself, to fight for their status as butter royalty. A win seems guaranteed until a formidable contender emerges: a 10-year-old Destiny, an African-American foster child of local couple Julie and Ethan. Suddenly, it's anybody's game and Laura will do anything to win, even if it means resorting to sabotage and seducing her foolish ex-boyfriend Boyd as a co-conspirator.'

Jennifer Garner is terrific. Ty Burrell is NOT Phil Dunphy in this movie.

Not much more than a timewaster, BUTTER tells the story of a handful of amateur butter sculpters with quirky personalities vying to win the title of champion. It's weird, but cute. And if you don't mind idling away an afternoon, then you might enjoy BUTTER, but if you're looking for anything with substance, BUTTER is not the way to go.

Not that great and a bit slow. I would not recommend this movie - save your time.

Reasonably funny, with some odd but pointed social commentary in places, but it's hard to tell where it is going, sometimes.

What a cute, funny little movie. The lead is a beautiful young breakout star and Garner is the perfect racist Stepford wife (was she born with those big, Mic Jaguar lips, just kidding). Really cute, feel good movie. Shame enough ppl didnt see it. And Kristin Schaal was awesome, I love her deer-in-the-headlights goofiness.

This movie has its funny moments, also the little girl is quite a talented actress.

It's always interesting to me what people are passionate about. Butter carving had not been in the spotlight before but this film took it there. Combine the competitiveness in the world of butter carving with the politics of a town and you get the storyline of this movie. Some swearing and sex would keep me from letting my granddaughter watch this movie.
