What a mistake. Extract is awful. Intended as a light, soft-porno-motivated film, it turned out to be crude and with little humor.

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

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

There are so many good jokes packed in there.

The entire cast, in fact, seems to be having fun, with Affleck and Koechner cheerfully stealing each one of their scenes.

There are some priceless character turns.

It has all the ingredients for cult immortality and will likely live on long after this year's Oscar winners are forgotten.

These days, it appears to be a rare gift to do comedy in a way that comes across as smart, but never superior or willfully crass. Bateman has that talent to spare.

Mike Judge's Extract -- modest, no big deal but very savvy -- is the funniest American comedy of the summer.
September 4, 2009
The result doesn't seem as fresh as Office Space, but Judge still comes up with enough laughs to deserve our attention.

[Extract] resembles its titular foodstuffs: less a fully realized comedy than the distillation of one. The ingredients are there, and the recipe as well, but Judge evidently forgot that the whole dish still needed cooking.
September 4, 2009
A "sympathy for the boss" comedy could conceivably work, but Judge has neglected to supply the laughs this time around.
September 4, 2009
This isn't a misanthropic picture; its true subject is the way love for our fellow human beings is so often thwarted by their actual behavior -- and still, stupidly perhaps, we just won't give up on them.
September 4, 2009
Extract isn't an instant classic, but it bumps along agreeably, its humor culled from serial bad decisions, mock-romantic discontent and lots of spirited overacting ripe with good intentions.
September 4, 2009
Right in time for the economic downturn comes Extract, a smart and potently funny workplace comedy about running a small business just as small businesses get routinely run into the ground.
September 4, 2009
Mocking an officious middle-manager is always fair game; ridiculing blue-collar workers who resent their mindless jobs just feels mean.

Like Judge's first two live-action films, Extract seems destined to do minor business at the box office but achieve a kind of immortality as a cult DVD.
