The Movie

Bob Pickler (Ty Burrell) has been butter sculpting champion of his small Iowa town for 15 years running. But when he’s pressured into stepping down from the latest county fair in order to give others a chance to compete, his ambitious, ultra-competitive wife Laura (Jennifer Garner) decides to take his place and go for the blue ribbon herself. Her fiercest competition comes from Destiny (Yara Shahidi), a 10-year-old black girl recently taken in by new foster parents (Rob Corddry and Alicia Silverstone), who turns out to be a prodigy at buttercraft. With the fair looming, a crass stripper (Olivia Wilde) hounding Bob for money, and tensions running high, Laura finds that she’ll do pretty much anything to win.

The Review

This is a very strange movie, and that’s not because it’s about butter carving. It’s has the tone of a satire, except it isn’t actually satirizing anything. »
