Extract is a live action film written and directed by Mike Judge, most famous for his television shows King of the Hill and Beavis and Butt-head. His other live action films include the venerable Office Space and Idiocracy, the former being the basis for yet another workplace fol...

I watched this a year before I reviewed it, must have overlooked it or maybe my review didn't save... and while I thought I had given it a lower rating, thinking back, it's a lot more memorable film than I thought it would be at the time. The cast is excellent, particularly Krist...

Under-appreciated comedy with a great cast that is admittedly light but unabashedly sincere.

Average acting & average laughs, this movie is only ok. Office Space is 150 times funnier than this movie.
