It's probably not going to be mentioned in the same breath with the greatest food movies of all time, like Tampopo, Eat Drink Man Woman, and Like Water For Chocolate, but it doesn't seem that Butter is that kind of flick anyway. It's about the cut-throat competitive world of butter sculpting. Yes. Competitive butter sculpting.
Wikipedia describes the plot thusly: “A young orphan discovers her uncanny talent for butter sculpture
in an Iowa town where her adoptive family lives. The talent pits her
against the ambitious wife of the reigning champion in the annual butter sculpture competition.”
But it does have Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Sidney Bristow (Jennifer
Garner), and Olivia Wilde playing a stripper. I'm in. Are you?
The movie is scheduled for release on October 5, but the trailer is now up and is being yapped about by bloggers like me who hope that the movie will be as hilarious as the premise.
