It's good movie to watch

Did not understand why it was rated R, probably because it has a lesbian kiss scene in it and the rating board is known be homophobic.
Simple premise a wealthy middle class woman wants to beat a child in a butter competition.
Not a masterpiece but a good light hearted satrical comedy with a random appearance by Wolverine.

A thoughtful, funny sweet movie with great characters and acting. LOVED it! I can't imagine anyone not enjoying unless you're missing a heart. Total thumbs up!

Ridiculous, absurd & an amazing cast!

There are some tongue in cheek comedic moments in this film, but it falls short of being a comedy. It's more of a melodramatic smorgasbord of dysfunction, more cringe worthy than laugh worthy.

'Butter' walks the line between raunchy and emotionally charming better than most. It has a top of the world cast, some playing amazingly against type, and a plot sooooo mundane that it elevates the quirky humor perfectly. I enjoyed it... and if you like subtle, character driven humor... you should too.

Sold as a drama yet played as a comedy, this film succeeds in neither. The premise is unique, but the characters feel flat no one seems to really get invested in themselves or motivations. A shame, as the film is packed with star power.

Well at least we got a sex scene between Olivia Wilde and Ashley Greene, so that's nice.

Weird combo of comedy and drama. Some funny parts, but ultimately not enough.

A silly but cute and heartwarming story about a little foster girl who wins a butter sculpting contest.

On sent qu' il ne faut pas se mettre en travers du chemin du personnage de Jennifer Garner....

The best parts are the scenes involving butter.

Thought the butter cow at the IL state fair was impressive but this film takes butter to a whole new level of awe-inspiring artistry. Fun and quirky without going overboard into the realm of absurdity.

Low budget, not a tremendously strong movie, but dark and adorable

Netflixed it... its basically a sweet movie about a town obsessed with butter and carving it into sculptures. Jennifer Garner plays a perfect stepford wife competing against an orphaned black girl and Olivia Wilde's stripper chick. Its never as funny as you want it to be, nor is it really dramatic or sappy... Its right down the middle, a little below average... See it for the cameos and actors we haven't seen in a while if anything - Alicia Silverstone, Rob Corddry, the Dad from Modern Family, Phyllis from The Office, and Hugh Jackman as a dumb yokel! Olivia Wilde pulls off trashy stripper well, but it doesn't help her case any that she's a walking stick figure....
