Meanwhile, Joel is upset that his wife won’t have sexual relations with him on a more regular basis, and begins to consider having an affair with a new employee. Joel’s drug addicted bartender friend suggests that Joel hire a gigolo to seduce his wife. That way, he won’t have to feel guilty about having an affair. Joel agrees, not knowing that the employee that he wants is in fact a con woman who is influencing the injured employee to sue the company.
The plot twists and turns as Joel continues to make one unwise decision after another.
EXTRACT is a comedy by pop culture icon Mike Judge. The stars of the movie are very convincing and very funny. The directing is very solid, and the script really moves. The characters, especially the supporting characters of Brad the young gigolo as well as the neighbor Nathan, are extremely funny and in many ways steal the movie.
EXTRACT has very funny moments and characters that are unusual. Joel, the lead character, is supposed to be a “regular Joe” surrounded by quirky characters. However, Joel himself is quirky. He agrees to take prescription medicine from his drug-addicted friend. He then goes and smokes marijuana against his better judgment, and then he hires a 20-something year old man to seduce his wife. If he had been more “regular,” the comedy may have been more cohesive.
EXTRACT also contains plenty of foul language and constant discussion about sex, which is where the main plot point turns. The worldview is strongly pagan and glorifies stealing and other types of immoral behavior. The general level of pagan immorality is excessive.
