Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Drippy sentiment and coarse political satire vie for control of "Butter," a two-faced sendup of heartland obsession that wants to have its toast and eat it too.
Rotten: Butter wishes it were a Christopher Guest sendup but comes off like a cheap imitation.
Rotten: Butter is a film more enamored of its premise than interested in making it work.
Rotten: Given the talent assembled for this diversion, you can't believe it's not better.
hilarious, Election meets Bring It On meets Best in Show
This movie is really funny and quirky, and unexpectedly touching at times. Olivia Wilde is simply amazing in this. You will love Hugh Jackman and Rob Coddry, and Kirsten Schaal is adorable and hilarious. If you watch the Daily Show, you must see this movie. If you liked movies like Election, Juno, any Coen Brothers comedy, etc, watch this.
