Not just a funny comedy but a well-written story! (by jeppydog)
This would make a solid 3 star movie without the comedy. The humor lifted it to 4 stars in my opinion. Bateman is great and so is Kristin Wiig. Mila Kunis is both beautiful and believable in a very different kind of role. The movie went so fast due to the good plot and the comedy had many amusing parts and some laugh out loud moments. It's an intelligent story and not your usual garbage comedy that uses profanity for laughs. The cast is full of interesting characters played by great actors you'll recognize: a bar-tender confident of Bateman's played by Affleck, a neighbor played <more>
by David Koechner the guy in Ron Burgundy with the cowboy hat , and the right hand man at Bateman's factory played by another hilarious actor J.K. Simmons who played Peter Parker's editor in Spiderman .
One of the best comedies in a long time (by vals2186)
I just got back from seeing this movie, and all I can say is two thumbs up. I left fully satisfied, money well spent on the price of a movie ticket. Lately the last few movies I saw were a bore including "The Goods" staring Jeremy Piven. It seems now and days the directors are exaggerating comedic scenes to make people laugh if they can even accomplish that. They'll repeat the same scenes over again because they have no other material to go off of. With Mike Judge's new movie he does the complete opposite. He takes everyday scenarios of what most normal people go through and <more>
puts it in his movies. The viewers can relate to these and that's what makes it hilarious. I can't remember the last time I cried so hard from laughing. The actors picked for this movie did an outstanding job in their roles and came through to the end. Ben Affleck was the most surprising. Very pleased with his role, never thought of him as being a comedic actor but by far he did the best job. I definitely recommend this movie to any one in for a good laugh.
One of the few movies of today that shows real human behavior, Instead of embracing and normalizing how dumbed down people are today, Instead this movie makes fun of it, like movies should. Because this new dumbed down generation is not trendy it is just pathetic and lost. I also love the humor in all of Mike Judges movies, Not many people today can make a comedy anymore without dragging in Joseph Goebbels styled politically correct propaganda. It is just straight up humor. I was actually surprised how well Ben Affleck did in this movie. I also love the sweat pants joke, LOL Well this is my <more>
review with me trying to get it's full ten lines, I do not feel you have to babble on about nonsense just to describe how good or bad a movie is, But apparently this site thinks you have to do so.
I went in to see this movie with pretty low expectations after having read the tepid reviews here and seeing the film only got 63% on rotten tomatoes. I was really pleasantly surprised! First of all, Jason Bateman is awesome and his strength and performance really carry this film. There are a couple of memorable supporting characters but for the most part I felt the actors playing the supporting characters could have been better. Ben Affleck is amusing. Kristen Wiig is a great foil for Jason Bateman.The story is fairly simple but eventful and effective. I laughed out loud several times. The <more>
running time is perfect at 90 minutes. Overall, my husband and I loved this movie and were very entertained. I recommend it.
It's nice to see Jason Bateman in a leading role for once, although he was the lead in TVs Arrested Development 2003-2006 , but for a while on film, he was mostly the other guy or the friend. Like in such memorable films The Sweetest Thing, The Breakup, Juno, The Kingdom, State of Play, and some not so memorable like Mr. Magoriums Wonder Eporium and Hancock. But in Extract he really shows he can be funny without trying to be funny.Joel Jason Bateman is a owner of a power plant called Extract, he employees don't respect him for a second, and despise the very sight of him. Things at <more>
home are not much better, has he tries to avoid an annoying neighbor named Nathan David Koesner . And he feels his marriage to Suzie Kristen Wiig is slowly crumbling. Joels only joy of the day is his best friend Dean Ben Affleck who got his look from Tommy Chung a hippie bartender who he likes to hang with. But then a co worker has a painful accident on the job, things soon get real interesting when the beautiful Cindy Mila Kunis comes to work there, and Joel is quickly smitten by her. And soon more funny turn of events will quickly ensue.I like this film, it is one of a few R rated comedies that does not half to rely on gross out gags, or overbearing vulgarness. Jason Bateman really made this film work, as a everyday man who gets himself in funny situations. Ben Affleck was alright, but he just wasn't has funny as Bateman was. Mila Kunis character could have been written a little better, not that she was bad, they just could written more for her to do. Kristen Wiig was alright also. I liked Extract more then Office Space.
Get your friend assembly line in line to see and laugh at the hilarious "Extract " (by meeza)
Writer-Director Mike Judge has brought back the zany antics of workplace oddity in the hilarious "Extract". It is not in the echelon of Judge's workplace comedy masterpiece "Office Space" but "Extract" still does the comedy job right. Jason Bateman is flawless as Joel, an owner of an extract company whose working & personal life goes into bizarre gear when: one of his employees suffers a testicle on-the-job accident, his bartender friend convinces him to experiment with drugs, his wife starts sleeping with the pool boy, and a new female temp makes the <more>
move on him but wants to steal more than his heart. Hey, what do you want? This kind of weird s*it always happens to Joels. Joel also gets badgered by a relentless neighbor every day to add fuel to the fire. Judge's film-making niche of creating satirical scenarios of workplace situations with wacky characterizations cannot be unmatched. To quote Carly Simon: "Nobody Does it Better", and I will be the judge of that! The ensemble acting of "Extract" was intact with sheer brilliance: Mila Kunis stole the show as the kleptomaniac temp Cindy, I got wiggy with Kristen Wiig's performance as Joel's cheating wife Suzie, Ben Affleck had a cool stillness about him as Joel's bartender friend Dean, J.K. Simmons had once again that Special J.K. thespian flavor as the company manager Brian, Clifton Collins Jr. continues to step closer to acting stardom with his role as the testicle-challenged Step, and David Koechner did not need any acting coaching as the annoying neighbor Nathan. Also, nice supporting turns were done by Dustin Milligan as the cerebrally challenged gigolo Brad, and the steady Beth Grant as the crabby employee Mary. But my favorite scene stealer of "Extract" was Matt Schulze as the stoner madman Willie or should I say Steamboat Willie. And again let's not extract our main man Jason Bateman from this ensemble comedy dream team. Judge's "Extract" screenplay was not in the verbal mastery space of "Office Space" but still worthy of an upsizing commendation. That's the working comedy word! Do not downsize this comedic gem from your movie viewing list, and catch the comedy flavor of "Extract" today. ***** Excellent
an unbiased review: Excellent film (by starlit-sky)
I claim that my review is unbiased simply because I didn't know anything about the director. I read all the negative reviews and see that people are frustrated because they compare it to his earlier works which are supposedly funnier.I must confess that I didn't know anything about the director, The Office Space, etc. That's why I had no expectations. I didn't expect this movie to be funny either. OK, so it is not funny in a way like a comedy sit com is funny, jokes are not laughable. This movie has dark humor; it is situations and what happens to people that makes it comical <more>
and even tragic.Main character, Joel, is the owner of an extract factory that he built from scratch with hard work. He is having some marital problems; his wife is not having sex with him anymore. In the meantime, a young, attractive temp, Cindy, gets hired as an employee. Joel turns to his bartender friend, Dean a very comical role by Ben Affleck for advice who talks him into hiring an amateur young stud, Brad, to seduce Joel's wife. If his wife gives into temptation then it is only fair for him to do the same, a seemingly logical way to guilt-free cheating.I really enjoyed this movie and it somewhat reminded me of American Beauty maybe because it was about problems of classic suburban families . It successfully portrays flaws of people, such as prejudice, sexual temptation, addiction, greed, ambition, career aspirations, and being intrusive, and most of all, miscommunication. I am really sorry that people didn't enjoy this as much as I did. If you can view this without any expectations you may find that is a quite remarkable film and definitely deserves a rating higher than 7.
One of the best comedies of 2009 (by tha_mongoose)
To appreciate Mike Judge's specific brand of humor requires a certain predisposition. It isn't the typical American slapstick. To be sure, Judge relies on clear-cut characterization to achieve humor that does not require buffoonery. We are entertained simply with the realism taken to the extreme we are confronted with.Where else in recent cinema do we see characters like Office Space's Milton Stephen Root or Bill Lumbergh Gary Cole ? We could venture to say nowhere. Though Extract does not best it's 1999 cousin, it is still a familiar trip down Judge's hilarious <more>
world.This time, instead of Milton, we have David Koechner as Nathan, the unbearable and creepy neighbor, who insists on socially insinuating himself on our main protagonist Joel Jason Bateman , when in fact Joel and his sexy wife Suzie Kristen Wiig cannot bare the sight of him.The prototype for the main character is familiar enough: Joel is successful in his professional career, yet unhappy with his life. The main source of all his frustration is his easily-trampled-on personality, exhibiting someone who is never in the moment. His wife refuses to offer him the pleasures of sexual congress, his only friend is a stoner who cares little for his travails, and some of his employees are a royal pain in the neck props to Beth Grant as Mary, successfully playing the most annoying character in the film .Like many of us, Joel needs to experience what looks like rock bottom, in terms of how the unfolding of events seems to be working to operate a situation of inescapable doom on all the various facets of his life: his wife appears to be on the brink of leaving him, his company faces bankruptcy, and it looks like there is nothing he can do about it.Yet this close contact with chaos of a sort that would have forced him out onto the streets finally pushes Joel to muster his wits and proceed to take control of the situation. This he does by appeasing the daredevil/kleptomaniac Cindy here seen as the gorgeous Mila Kunis and his recent recruit Step Clifton Collins Jr. , as well as, toward the end of the movie, his wife.Extract gets a better rating than other superficial comedies because it also carries a message. The way things fall in place relatively smoothly shows how some things are simply beyond our control. Things have a way of sorting themselves out - for the viewer this seemed impossible 15 minutes before the end of the picture.It was a fundamental change in approach that led Joel to assume control of the derailed train that had become his life. Yet his wife also changed attitude after the incident she was involved in. Sometimes change from within is the key to opening the lock this line of reasoning is reminiscent of Bill Murray's predicament in Groundhog Day . Even when everything seems to be falling apart, there is always a way out.To the comedic genius: Gene Simmons as Joe Adler is a riot. So are Matt Schulze as the stoner redneck Willie, Dustin Milligan as the mentally challenged Brad, J. K. Simmons as Brian, who never remembers the employee's names, Ben Affleck as the useless spiritual healer friend Dean, and the Heavy Metal vocalist from God's Cock with 35 face piercings, as well as the fat farmer-like worker who tries to organize the factory riot - they all possess Judge's signature insane-like quality. 7.5/10. Recommended for lovers of good comedy.
Mike Judge's patented brand of intelligent insanity comes through again. (by Mr_Censored)
From the mind of Mike Judge "Office Space" comes "Extract," a movie about the mundane daily struggles of Joel Reynolds Jason Bateman . Joel is the owner of a flavoring extract plant where he is forced to babysit his mismatched and unmotivated employees and dreams of the day he can sell the company off and stop working altogether. His wife, Suzie SNL's Kristen Wiig sits at home, depressed and lonely, while Joel struggles to make it home before the eight o'clock deadline when she puts on her sweatpants and all hopes of coitus are squashed. A con-woman Mila <more>
Kunis comes into the picture, hoping to capitalize on a pending lawsuit against the company as well as catching Joel's eye. Not knowing what to do, he turns to his drug-peddling bartender friend Ben Affleck who in turn suggests he hires a gigolo to have an affair with his wife so he can go forward with his own affair, guilt-free.If it sounds ludicrous and over-the-top, it is. Mike Judge's films always have a way of spinning everyday-life situations in the wildest ways. What starts out with the best well, sort of intentions quickly spirals downward into a mess beyond repair. Like "Office Space," "Extract" is Judge's version of what happens when the everyday, working-class man gets bored and decides to do something about it. Is it meant to be a cautionary tale or simply a social commentary? Whatever the answer, it works on both levels. You'll laugh at Joel's misfortunes while a little part of you feels sympathy knowing deep down that he is simply a nice guy gone wrong and that things like this although not as extreme could happen to any one of us. That sort of twisted reality is what makes a good Mike Judge film, and no doubt, this is another of his that is destined to become a cult-classic.Thankfully, though, the movie isn't so wacky that it loses its humanity. Despite some odd performances in the film, achieved brilliantly by Affleck, David Koechner and J.K. Simmons who, with his bald-head, somewhat resembles a character in one of Mike Judge's cartoons and the outrageous events that unfold, the film still keeps its heart firmly in place. Granted, you won't laugh as thoroughly as you might during other comedies, but during Judge's fourth feature-length film, you'll squirm enough in your seat during the awkward moments to know that you were delivered a solid story with real characters and humor derived from their pain and suffering. "Extract" is, at the end of the day, an intelligent, hard-working and quirky little comedy that will no doubt find its audience in the years to come, much like "Office Space." Unfortunately the film isn't doing so hot right now debuting at #10! , so I urge you to go to the movies and give it a shot. I promise, you won't be sorry.
