Movie Summary

Director:
Mike Judge
Released:
2009
Rating:
R
The creator of Office Space, writer-director Mike Judge (Beavis And Butt-Head), moves from cubicles to the assembly line with Extract - his outrageous return to workplace comedy, featuring a hilarious ensemble cast of quirky characters. About to sell his successful flavor extract company, life is almost sweet for Joel (Jason Bateman) until a freak on-the-job accident happens. Add to that his bored wife (Kristen Wiig), his laid-back best friend (Ben Affleck), a sexy con artist (Mila Kunis) who blows into town with dollar signs in her bedroom eyes, and a dumb gigolo - and life as he knows it turns sour. Filled with laugh-out-loud one-liners and raunchy comedy, Extract is 100% pure hilarity.

Metacritic Score

  • 50

    Los Angeles Times

    While Extract is mildly amusing and a slice of a mostly working-class world that doesn't make it into comedy that much anymore, it's not completely convincing as a movie.

    The New York Times Manohla Dargis

    What's most striking about Extract, beyond the scarcity of jokes and absence of actual filmmaking, is its deep well of sourness, which at times borders on misanthropy.

    Variety Justin Chang

    The picture's attempts at comic portraiture feel sketchy at best, more or less assigning each character a single, belabored trait.
