Extract

Original Release: September 4th, 2009

Written & Directed by: Mike Judge

Starring: Jason Bateman, Mila Kunis, Kristen Wiig

 

Mike Judge delivers his normal dry satirical humor in Extract, but the overall flavor falls flat. The beginning showed promise but the further into the movie the more it began to drag. Judge tried to add so many small plot points to add humor but it overloaded the script and didn’t garner any laughs from this viewer. Jason Bateman, Mila Kunis, and Kristen Wiig play their roles well but they’ve all had better roles. The standout from Extract was Beth Grant, a small-part  veteran actor, who shined as crabby line person, Mary.  People looking for the next Office Space should look elsewhere.
