    Judge is in the business of social satire, and his laughs can sting, but his movie is a comic salute to free enterprise. And, boy, do we need it now. show more

    Isn't an instant classic, but it bumps along agreeably. show more

    Affleck ought to do more quirky character roles rather than leading-man parts in action films. Bateman plays his low-key straight man/protagonist to perfection. show more

    Mr. Judge has done better...Here, by contrast, we're dealing with one-note characters, among them a sexy grifter (Mila Kunis) and a dim-witted gigolo (Dustin Milligan); situations that stretch all credibility; and jokes that are never more than sort of funny. show more

    A mix of coolheaded cultural satire and anxiety-inducing workplace and marital shenanigans, Extract is an odd project. It's smarter than most of the comedies out there right now, but that doesn't necessarily make it funnier. show more

    The entire cast, in fact, seems to be having fun, with Affleck and Koechner cheerfully stealing each one of their scenes. And the jokes come often enough to leave us consistently amused and occasionally delighted. show more

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

    White trash meets white collar in Extract, Mike Judge's workplace comedy -- which contains more reality than the last five documentaries I've seen. show more

    Extract is an exuberant no other and one of the best comedies of the year. show more

    I actually liked this film. Despite all the bad reviews probably coming from the same people who loved transformers 2. There wasn't anything phenominal about this flick, but that is what I liked about it. Just a charming little film. I guess I was in the mood ******** still better than most of the crap that is out there.

    Horribly disappointed. Huge Kristen Wiig fan and found this soooo boring, I actually dozed off during the showing. NOT funny. Waste of time, waste of talent, waste of money -- watch SNL instead.

    Save your money. Very few laughs. These actors were working with a weak plot. This movie will vanish from the theaters quickly. The word of mouth will not be kind

    I love the cast but It was not as funny as I expected.

    And, am I wrong or was that Mike Judge himself playing "Jim" (the long-haired, cap-wearing guy on the plant floor who helps plot the "strike")? He sounded almost exactly like Hank Hill! :-)

    It's funny quick humor will have you laughing and relating to a lot of the story line. You will love this movie. Better than anything showing at the commercial theaters.
