The 2012 comedy Butter features a sprawling ensemble cast that includes Jennifer Garner (The Odd Life of Timothy Green), Ty Burrell (TV’s Modern Family), Olivia Wilde (TRON: Legacy), Rob Corddry (Hot Tube Time Machine), Alicia Silverstone (Vamps), and Hugh Jackman (Oklahoma!).
A story about unlikely rivals who will do whatever it takes to beat the competition, the film sets its sights on a butter carving contest in Iowa, which is a as cut-throat as a Presidential election with its scandal, greed, blackmail, and sex. When long-reigning champion butter sculptor, Bob Pickler (Burrell), is forced to step down, his zealous wife, Laura (Garner), enters the competition herself to fight for their status as butter royalty. A win seems virtually guaranteed for the poised and studied candidate when a formidable contender emerges: the fresh-faced, effortlessly charismatic 10-year-old, Destiny (Yara Shahidi), an African-American foster child of local couple, Jill and Ethan (Silverstone and Corddry). 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 (Jackman), as a co-conspirator.
Directed by Jim Field Smith (She’s Out of My League), the R-rated Butter received generally tepid reviews upon its limited release to theaters and video-on-demand premiere in October, 2012. Certainly, the cast warrants some attention…
The Blu-ray and DVD contain a gag reel and deleted and extended scenes as bonus features.
