This is a movie that you probably missed if you weren’t looking for it. I wanted to see it in the theatre and was waiting and watching for it and I still couldn’t find it. The film’s creator, Mike Judge, is also the creator of Beavis and Butt-Head and the movie Office Space. Ever since Beavis and Butt-Head, I have been a huge Mike Judge fan. Office Space sealed the deal and therefore, I couldn’t wait for Extract.
My wife was ho-hum about the movie but I managed to get it moved to the top of our Netflix cue when I realized that it was already on video (I still have no idea how it sneaked by us to video because I was honestly seeking it out to watch it at the theatre). So having her being ho-hum and the movie completely falling off the radar, I had suspicion that it might suck. Being that Jason Bateman, Ben Affleck, Kristen Wiig, and Mila Kunis are in this movie and that Mike Judge wrote and directed it, I just knew it couldn’t suck, but I was a little nervous. As you will see in this review, it did not suck.
My initial draw to see the movie was Mike Judge. But lately, I’ve been really digging Mila Kunis. She is a total babe and it made me want to see the movie even more. She ironically graced the cover of my Esquire magazine this month and there is a nice little layout with a couple good pics that you should check out. So, enough with the prelude and on with the review.
