Audience Reviews for Butterfield 8

    With lines like a comedy ridiculing this genre played straight, it took an act of will to stomach this garbage, this trash, about trash. Maybe its better than I give it credit for ... but noooooo.

    Absolutely riveting performance by Elizabeth Taylor. The film is excellent in its exposition of a wonderfully complex woman. One of my all-time favorite characters.

    So what's this I hear about this film being a piece of trash? Maybe it's just due to Liz Taylor's fascinating sex appeal, but I found Butterfield 8 to be utterly sumptuous. Poor dependable sap Eddie Fisher pulsating with desire for Gloria's touch, but making do with simple Norma's homebody image. Laurence Harvey crusading through entire imaginable emotion on the map - orgasmic ecstasy, contentment, anger, despair, resurrection. And the clothing! The truths! The hysterics! The catfights! This is a film about one woman's effect on an entire community, and wow does Liz Taylor make it unforgettable.

    I love this woman to pieces! The more I see of her, the more I'm convinced what a phenomenal actress she is! And boy is she HOT!!! <div style="width:290px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com/movie/butterfield-8-photos/elizabeth-taylor-in-butterfield-8-11387861"><img src="http://content7.flixster.com/photo/11/38/78/11387861_gal.jpg" border="0"/></a><div style="text-align:center;font-size:10px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com">
