EXTRACT is a comedy by pop culture icon Mike Judge and has some very funny moments with unusual characters. The lead character is a little bit too quirky, however. There is also 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, but not extremely graphic.
(PaPaPa, LLL, V, S, N, A, DD, MM) Very strong pagan worldview of stealing, deception and obsession with sex; at least 18 obscenities and eight profanities; man is castrated in factory accident; strong sexual content includes nearly constant discussion of sex and implied sexual relations, including adultery; upper male nudity; alcohol use; use of marijuana and abuse of prescription medications; and, husband hires young man to have sexual relations with his wife, stealing, con games, and deception.
EXTRACT is the story of Joel (played by Jason Bateman), who has a series of problems at home and at work. Joel owns a food flavoring extract factory in a small town. General Mills is interested in buying his company, but before he can sell it, an injured employee starts to sue the company. This lawsuit stands in the way of the business sale.
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.
