    Wow. I guess nobody here has seen a Mike Judge movie before. Funny movie, more along the lines of Office Space than Idiocracy. The humor is smarter and seemingly tuned down. Sorry kiddos, not a lot of the gross out and childish humor here. gotta use your mind to get alot of it. I wonder if that has something to do with the low user score. Anyway. See it. Or don't. Doesn't matter Wow. I guess nobody here has seen a Mike Judge movie before. Funny movie, more along the lines of Office Space than Idiocracy. The humor is smarter and seemingly tuned down.

    Extract is a funny dark comedy because it depicts a terrible mid-life crisis in a hilarious manner. Jason Bateman couldn't have been more perfect as the lead character, and the rest of the cast, most notably Ben Affleck, contribute funny performances.

  1. Not a single person in this ensemble comedy doesn't suffer from colossal stupidity.

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

    The movie is characterized by its crisp, cutting, classical framing, and comic timing. The style and approach recall classic Albert Brooks. Indeed, the beleaguered, cuckolded Joel would have been a great role for the young Brooks--adding a certain self-aggrandizing je ne sais quoi or a neurotic zetz that the appealing, but bland, Bateman lacks.
