Finally, A Movie About Butter Carving
Here at culture we're excited for this ridiculous movie starring Jennifer Garner, Ty Burrell, Hugh Jackman and Alicia Silverstone. It's all about butter, which happens to be one of our favorite substances (right up there with cheese). Who doesn't like a butter scandal? Scroll down to watch the trailer and see what the Guardian has to say about it:
A liberal comedy which may or may not attempt to parody the Republican race for top office through the fable of a lard-carving contest in a midwest town. Jennifer Garner is Laura Pickler, the Tea Party-style candidate and a ruthless dragon with an apparently motiveless lust for power and a distaste for what she perceives as the victim vote that's thwarting her: "I'm sorry I was born tall and white and pretty and I haven't sat in front of the TV eating pork rind and soiling myself."
She's married to the "Elvis of Butter", carving whiz Bob (Ty Burrell), who for 15 years has reigned supreme at the town's annual contest with his ambitious tableaux, including the Last Supper and Schindler's List. But the organisers ask him to step down in order to give newcomers a shot, so Garner, irrationally offended, takes up the spatulas in his place, and finds herself pitted against a stripper (Wilde) to whom Bob owes money, as well as an impossibly sweet 10-year-old African-American girl, Destiny (Yara Shahidi), lately fostered by loving lefties Alicia Silverstone and Rob Corddry. And, in fact, another contender: a cat-mad Bob-groupie played by Kristen Schaal, who ambles off with every scene she's in.
