About the Movie
About to sell his successful flavor extract company, life is almost sweet for Joel (Jason Bateman) until a freak onthejob accident happens. Add to that his bored wife (Kristen Wiig), his laidback, stoner 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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Right in time for the economic downturn comes Extract, a smart and potently funny workplace comedy about running a small business just as small businesses get routinely run into the ground.
Fresh: This isn't a misanthropic picture; its true subject is the way love for our fellow human beings is so often thwarted by their actual behavior -- and still, stupidly perhaps, we just won't give up on them.
Fresh: Mike Judge's Extract -- modest, no big deal but very savvy -- is the funniest American comedy of the summer.
Rotten: [Extract] resembles its titular foodstuffs: less a fully realized comedy than the distillation of one. The ingredients are there, and the recipe as well, but Judge evidently forgot that the whole dish still needed cooking.
Read what Adam in Philly said
Read what Adam in Philly said. No one else reviewed this movie because Adam said it perfectly. But, I believe that there is always a subtle genius to Jason Bateman's straight man performances. He kills me. Cristopher Orr is a pompous windbag, who dumps on movies he doesn't have the wit or talent to create. Oh yeah, watch this movie.

Not laugh out loud funny, chuckle to yourself funny, or any kind of funny at all.
