Any movie that opens with a quotation from Maya Angelou, follows that with a clip from an old racist cartoon, cuts to someone posting a racial slur on a dorm room door, then immediately serves up Sarah Jessica Parker as dean of students wants to get on your nerves. By that measure, "Spinning Into Butter" counts as some kind of success.
