The Butler sure does present us with a lot of familiar faces

5 second plot: Cecil is a butler in the White House. He starts there in a time when African Americans don't yet have equal civil rights. He works there for a long time and serves a lot of different presidents. The story is not about him butlering, but about everything else that is going on in the world around him.

5 second review: This movie would have been a lot better without the fleet of famous people they dragged out of their retirement. What's that all about? It is a good lesson in history and although it took me a while to really 'feel' it, it's definitely got heart.

IMDb score: 7,1/10
