The beginning was a bit slow and then it got going. This is old school plotline so you have to be patient while they build the characters and storyline. I would say this would fall more into a chick flick comedy drama. There were several characters that you will know and a couple that were A listers back when this came out.

Feel Good Movie
Arthur R. Valencia | Exeter, California United States | 12/09/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A fairytale story where mismatched people find their way to their proper mates at the end. A feel good movie that leaves you smiling and there's nothing wrong with that. Excellent performances by everyone."
Michael Butts | Martinsburg, WV USA | 09/15/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"THE BUTCHER'S WIFE was critically reviled in its release; star Demi Moore was even given the dubious honor of being nominated for a Razzy award for her performance in this and NOTHING BUT TROUBLE. But I liked the movie. It's charming simplicity and romantic themes are contrived and hardly original, but they're done with such unabashed sentimentality, you can't help but get moony-eyed too. Moore plays a clairvoyant somewhat naive Southern girl who decides butcher George Dzunda is the man of her dreams, and she proposes to him and he whisks her off to his butcher shop in Manhattan. There she uses her beguiling witchery to drastically alter the lives of the people she encounters: Jeff Daniels, a stuffy psychiatrist who sees Moore as a threat to his psychological world; Frances McDormand as a closet lesbian who decides to go with her feelings and admit her attraction to Margaret Colin, who just happens to be Daniels' squeeze. Moore also gives stuffy choral director Mary Steenburgen the confidence to pursue her secret desire of a career as a blues singer (Steenburgen does her own singing and she's quite effective). All of the confusion eventually works its way out and the appropriate couples find love after all. The movie is practically stolen by Steenburgen, whose performance is simply marvelous. The rest of the cast, particularly Max Perlich as a troubled teen and Colin and McDormand are fabulous. It certainly isn't a classic movie, but it's warmheartedness and glowing performances made it extremely enjoyable to this viewer."
Cute fantasy
Cheri | Richardson, TX United States | 10/13/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This was a cute mix of reality and fantasy, with a moral of no matter what you use to rule your life, fate has a plan for you. Demi Moore plays Marina, a naive southern girl with a gift, who dreams her new husband (sort of) and ends up in New York married to the neighborhood Butcher (George Dzundza)! Jeff Daniels is the non-commital psychiatrist across the street and Mary Steenbergen is a mild-mannered church chior director who wants to sing in a Lounge. Between the four of them, they turn their lives upside-down and all around, affecting the lives of all those around them. It's a chick flick and very good!"
