'BUTTER' IT UP Jennifer Garner tries her hand at the craft of butter-carving

Hugh Jackman, Ty Burrell, and Jennifer Garner star in this quirky political comedy about a staple dairy product and its impact on a small Iowa town. Garner plays an audacious, outspoken Midwestern housewife who decides to enter a butter-carving competition when her husband — a butter-carving champion for 15 consecutive years — is forced to retire.
