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.

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

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.

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.
December 17, 2009
While Judge juggles a considerable ensemble of overlapping dilemmas and countervailing agendas with admirable dexterity, it sometimes comes at the cost of characterization.

...it's not quite as uninhibitedly ridiculous as The Hangover, the tacked-on moral lesson for which no apology is even attempted.
