I see about 70 movies per year and rarely do I see the audience stand up and applaud at the end of a movie. The Butler was worthy of the applause.
Forrest Whitaker as Cecil Gaines was as good – or even better – than he was in The Last King Of Scotland. Oprah Winfrey gave an equally outstanding performance as his wife. Each actor is worthy of another Oscar nomination for their roles.
The stellar supporting cast brought the movie to the next level. 30 years worth of White House history is a lot to pack into a movie, but the writer Danny Strong did a fine job, and Lee Daniels’ direction was near flawless.
About The Peetimes: There are 3 Pee Times coming at 43 min, 1:03 min and 1:27 min into the movie. They all offer just a little over 3 minutes for a break so let your bladder decide which one is best.
There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of The Butler. (What we mean by Anything Extra)

Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Android or iPhone ) whenever you go to the movies. (We've been doing this over 10 years now.)

RunPee Mom is our emotional bedrock. Without her, RunPee never would have lasted a decade as an app (which is since the dawn of time in internet years). She’s our biggest cheerleader and an unending source of unconditional love. She works cheerfully and tirelessly, seeing any movie we ask of her, writing interesting reviews, and being our…well…MOM. Her genres of choice: kiddie flicks, animated movies, emotional dramas, historical features, war films, diverse biographies, and even dense, diabolically plotted thrillers. She knows more about famous and infamous figures in history than said figures probably knew about themselves. She’s the Quiz Manager for the RunPee.com blog, and our resident movie celebrity/trivia expert. If you’ve taken a RunPee Quiz, you’ve most likely been given a virtual hug by RunPee Mom.
