Extract Blu-Ray Review

Extract Blu-Ray Review 

 You can purchase this blu-ray online today!


Synopsis: The creator of OFFICE SPACE, writer-director Mike Judge (BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD), moves from cubicles to the assembly line with EXTRACT his outrageous return to workplace comedy, featuring a hilarious ensemble cast of quirky characters. About to sell his successful flavor extract company, life is almost sweet for Joel (Jason Bateman) until a freak on-the-job accident happens. Add to that his bored wife (Kristen Wiig), his laid-back best friend (Ben Affleck), a sexy con artist (Mila Kunis) who blows into town with dollar signs in her bedroom eyes, and a dumb gigolo -- and life as he knows it turns sour. Filled with laugh-out-loud one-liners and raunchy comedy, EXTRACT is 100% pure hilarity.

Review: I was a big fan of Office Space, another film by Mike Judge, which serves as a close brother to Extract.  I did go back and watch the film recently and it just wasn't as interesting to me.  Extract really brought me back into Judge's universe, though.  The highlight of this film is Kristen Wiig.  I'm going to go on record as saying she is one of the funniest and most underrated women in film today.

The story of the film isn't quite as interesting as the banter.  This is something that Judge's writing has in common with Kevin Smith.  This isn't Clerks 2 quality humor, but its still funny.  The characters are full of life and have some great lines and observations.

The only way to own this one is on blu-ray disc!  Thats not to say that they don't offer it on DVD, but there is no point to wasting your money on DVD anymore if a blu-ray option is available to you!  The high-definition and amazing sound isn't to be missed.

Bonus Features include: Exclusive To Blu-ray Deleted Scene, Exclusive To Blu-ray Extended Scenes, Mike Judge's Secret Recipe Featurette The Ingredients For A Classic Mike Judge Film
