This sounds like a corny flick… I’m disappointed in Hugh, since he has SO much talent and he seems to be wasting it…

Is it just me, or does “butter-carving”" sound like a weird premise for a film?

Hmmm……………….

To Kitty Kat,

Butter follows a young orphan who, after being adopted by a Midwestern family, discovers she has an uncanny talent for butter-carving. She eventually finds herself up against the ambitious wife of the retired reigning champion in a town’s annual butter-sculpting contest. The premise is reuniting with an ex-lover, while she praticing for a silly contest.

To Tim Gunn:

I STILL think that an “uncanny” talent for butter-carving(!) is a weird premise for a film.

Discuss.

This movie is meant to be a political satire using the butter carving competition as the setting. A sort of take off of the Hilary Clinton and Obama face off, the script and premise is probably too smart for the people that usually visit and comment on this site. But visit the real movie blog sites and they are all over this movie and cast. This is an independant movie, none of these actors are getting paid much to be in it, they read the script and understand the potential of this movie being great. Just wait and see.

The script was rated as 3rd best in the 2008 BLACK LIST – which is the list of unfilmed screenplays voted by Hollywood film execs and producers as best candidates for movie projects.

Hope it turns out to be an excellent political satire and entertaining movie!

I love Hugh Jackman and Alicia, but can’t stand Jen “the horsey” Garner.
She is so fake and would do anything for publicity.

Hugh is getting old and it shows on his face.

A butter carving contest? Pass.

nothing wrong with that, still gorgeous.
Hope you die young, so that you don’t have to suffer from getting old yourself.

This film has a shallow story line. Definitely will not be a part of my Netflix queue.

I’m okay with a nice chick flick now and then. This could be good :)

This movies sounds incredibly stupid….but I LOVE Hugh.

@black: That’s stupid. He’s 41 years old and has 2 kids under the age of 10. What do you expect? Besides, his body still looks pretty hot so I don’t care. This picture isn’t even a very good pic of him.

this better be good. the cast is great. i miss seeing alicia on the big screen

Sounds funny to me!! besides Hugh is georgous!!

Sounds like the dumbest premise of all time. Even if it is a metaphor for a “more intelligent storyline”, it still is completely uninteresting and idiotic. PASS.

They are filming in Shreveport Louisiana at Centenary College. I go to the school and got to see Jennifer today. It’s a pretty big production.
