      Anthony Lane Independent (UK) The film is such candy-floss that it may not realise what a great screwball clinch it could have staged: the seer versus the shrink, two lovers fighting to get a lead on human behaviour. Jan 4, 2018 Full Review Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly Rated: F Sep 7, 2011 Full Review Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times The Butcher's Wife wants to be a whimsical, heartwarming fantasy, and it almost succeeds, but it is betrayed by its own need to put a Hollywood spin on a plot that doesn't need one. Rated: 2.5/4 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) The film becomes progressively fatuous...

      Richard W Don't let all the haters turn you off of this little gem ,great ,great movie I laughed so hard ,it's really cute ,a must see ,have zero understanding, how this movie could have such a low rating I watch it every couple of years Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/22/24 Full Review Steve D Paper thin in character and story. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member I signed up for an account just to tell you all this is actually a good ass movie, the haters are wrong Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review robert p Not a great movie or even a silly Rom-com, I give this movie a *3* star rating, watch it once it is not very memorable. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Dylan M The movie was refreshing, light entertainment, joyous. Made me laugh, made my mum laugh. Take some time out from stress, you don't need to invest yourself, figure it out or be convinced - just sit back and enjoy. The last movie we sat through for the duration, and both enjoyed, was Predestination. If there is a place for Predestination then there is a place for The Butcher's Wife. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 12/23/20 Full Review Audience Member It has been a long time since I have seen this movie, but I read that it was panned by reviewers, and even Demi Moore regretted starring in this movie. But, for me this movie is very special, and I loved it a lot. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Read all reviews
