Mike Judge has always made some terrific comedies. With Extract he again makes a fun, and entertaining comedy, but compared to his other films, Extract lacks a bit. The cast are good, and there's plenty to enjoy, but it leaves something to be desired. Though I liked the film, I f...

Despite of the nice cast this comedy is somewhat forgettable and does not leave much of an impression. The exception is Gene Simmons as slimy lawyer, which is pretty hilarious.

My grade is probably a bit inflated, but it's hard to ignore my bias toward Mike Judge. He gets workplaces. He gets satire too, even if the stuff on display here is more blunt and low-key than it probably should be.
Although it is nowhere near the same level, this film had a fa...

Classic Mike Judge. Ben Affleck is actually funny in this one. Worth a watch.

This film could have been called "Widgets" or "Thumb Tacks" as the Extracts are merely a weak sub-plot for which this even weaker story is based.
