Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Director Terry Hughes ventured into the realm of romantic comedy with this 1991 release. The lighthearted tone throughout makes for a largely pleasant, unassuming film. Demi Moore plays the role of a clairvoyant with some flair, although her Southern accent leaves a lot to be desired. Jeff Daniels, on the other hand, brings his flailing comedy to his role as an uptight psychiatrist and pretty much steals the show. Although very sappy and predictable, the film hits on some universal senses in a heartwarming and humorous light. Furthermore, the mystic romanticism of the film works well with its feel-good agenda. It is further boosted by a solid cast that is rounded out by George Dzundza, Mary Steenburgen, and Frances McDormand. While not particularly earth shattering filmmaking, Hollywood ending and all, the film manages to entertain and served as a showcase for Jeff Daniels' burgeoning comedic talents.

    An Enchanting, Romantic Comedy

    The Butcher¿s Wife makes you believe, if only for a while, that there are those who can see into the future. It¿s a romantic tapestry of lives touched by clairvoyant Marina, Demi Moore, while in search of a dream. She thinks the search is over when her husband-to-be, George Dzundza, rows ashore on her tiny North Carolina Island, and she moves with him to New York. The characters she touches are, conveniently, all patients of over zealous, textbook psychiatrist Alex, artfully portrayed by Jeff Daniels. Demi Moore is enchanting, and Jeff Daniels is very funny, as he attempts to sort through his life complicated by the butcher¿s wife. I highly recommend this film for a delightful, 104-minute escape from life.
