Butter is a dark comedy that may or may not be a veiled metaphor for the Republican Party’s bid for presidential office. It’s an intriguing idea to parallel the cut-throat world of butter carving competitions (yes, they do exist in real life) with the no-holds-barred arena of politics. Jennifer Garner stars as Laura Pickler, a cross between Hilary Clinton and Sarah Palin. She’s married to Bob (Ty Burrell), Iowa’s “Elvis of Butter” who’s won the town’s annual butter carving contest for 15 years running with his stirring creations, including a life-size The Last Supper and his tribute to Schindler’s List. Laura, who truly believes that Bob’s place in Iowa society will take him all the way to the governor’s office, is incensed when the contest organizers ask him to step down in order to give newcomers a chance. She decides to enter the contest in his place and finds herself pitted against a stripper (Olivia Wilde) looking to stick it to Laura and acquire the $600 that Bob owes her, a sweet 10-year-old butter prodigy (Yara Shahidi) being fostered by a kind left-leaning couple (Alicia Silverstone, Rob Corddry) and a Bob Pickler super-fan with no natural talent whatsoever (Kristen Schaal). Laura ruthlessly pursues the butter carving championship title by any means necessary, even turning to a former flame turned creepy car salesman (Hugh Jackman) to help rig the competition with some sitcom-friendly hijinks.
