In the quirky and satirical film Butter from 2011, Jennifer Garner plays Laura Pickler, the reigning queen of butter carving in the small town of Iowa. Laura's world, filled with perfect hair, manicured lawns, and childhood trophies, is turned upside down when her husband, Bob Pickler (played by Ty Burrell), is forced to retire from the state fair butter carving competition after a 15-year winning streak.

Determined to keep the Pickler legacy alive, Laura enters the competition with her eye on the prize, but she is quickly challenged by a young black orphan girl, Destiny (played by Yara Shahidi), who has an incredible talent for butter carving. Despite the fact that Destiny has never carved butter before, Laura sees her as a threat to the Pickler family's reign.

As the competition heats up, Butter explores the absurdity of butter carving competitions and small-town politics, as well as the themes of jealousy, competition, and the American dream. The film also touches upon issues of race and class, particularly through Destiny's character, who faces discrimination and rejection from a predominantly white community.

Along the way, some of the film's most entertaining and outrageous moments come from its supporting cast, which includes Olivia Wilde as a stripper with a love for butter carving, and Rob Corddry and Alicia Silverstone as Laura's clueless but well-meaning opponents in the competition.

But while Butter is certainly a comedy, it also has moments of heart and sincerity. Some of the film's most touching scenes come from the relationship between Destiny and her foster parents, played by Robb and Kristen Schaal. Despite the odds stacked against them, Destiny's growing bond with her new family gives the film a sense of hope and optimism.

Overall, Butter is an entertaining and silly film that pokes fun at oddball competitions and the absurdity of small-town life. But it also has elements of social commentary that make it more than just a movie about butter carving. With a talented cast and a unique premise, Butter is a fun and enjoyable watch for anyone in the mood for a satirical comedy.
