Even if the whole isn't quite the sum of its parts, those parts offer enough touches of off-kilter inspiration to amuse.

Extract doesn't have a memorable message, a moralizing mission or a satirical axe to grind. But if your life needs a little humorous flavoring, pour away.

A decade on from his sublime white collar wage-slave comedy Office Space, director Mike Judge returns to the workplace for this gentle satire.

There is a lot of unconvincing, random plot, most characters are deeply unsympathetic and the women are poorly served by underdeveloped roles.

Has many promising ingredients, yet somehow none of them quite gel.

The film is never funny enough, and comes across as dispiritingly mean.

Aside from being not all that funny, Judge's droll-ish observations on the small-mindedness of corporate America never hit the mark while there are too many go-nowhere plot diversions.

Judge knows his game well enough, but too often the jokes feel like seasoning to a premise that is just slightly overdone.

Extract is the kind of economical comedy that's more about sly grins of acknowledgments and quiet chuckles than rolling in the aisles laughter.

A bemusing black comedy that is as unfocused as it is unbelievable.

Bateman is perfectly cast as the understated lead and Kunis works well as divisive eye candy, but it's the supporting actors who really shine.

Mike Judge's latest comedy is never exactly laugh-out-loud funny but it's very enjoyable nonetheless, thanks to strong comic performances and a drily witty script.

Mixing absurd comedy with understated dialog, Mike Judge spins an amiable farce about marriage and work ethics

Judge really feels for these losers, making this shaggy, unfocused fun.

Judge's latest doesn't linger long in the memory, generating more gentle chuckles than outand- out belly laughs. But it goes down smoothly enough...

Extract works better as a bunch of miniature observations than as a singular piece, but viewed within the context of Judge's body of work, it's a funny and worthy addition to his suburban comedies.

While not as complete a success as "Office Space", it is often quite brilliant.

Many setups with no punchlines.

Mike Judge's nuggets are often enjoyable enough for us to want to ignore the fact that Extract really doesn't work particularly well in its totality.

A classic Judge film: somewhat uneven but filled with interesting, albeit clueless, characters and funny set-ups.
