Critic Reviews for The Butcher's Wife

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (12)

  • The film is such candy-floss that it may not realise what a great screwball clinch it could have staged: the seer versus the shrink, two lovers fighting to get a lead on human behaviour.

  • The Butcher's Wife wants to be a whimsical, heartwarming fantasy, and it almost succeeds, but it is betrayed by its own need to put a Hollywood spin on a plot that doesn't need one.

  • Demi Moore has never looked lovelier than she does in The Butcher's Wife.

    That's one of the reason why I hate several romantic comedys.
