Now that you've seen it, what did you think? Mike Judge is back! It may not be the summer anymore, but that doesn't mean there aren't any more good movies left to see. But is Extract any good? Office Space and "Beavis and Butthead" creator Mike Judge has been somewhat out of the loop for a while, give or take Idiocracy, which Fox quietly dumped a few years back. He returns today with his new film Extract, but is it even funny? Does it live up to Office Space? Is Jason Bateman as great of a lead as Ron Livingston this time? Sound off below, leave your thoughts, and let us know what you thought of Mike Judge's Extract!
To fuel the fire, I certainly enjoyed Extract, I laughed a lot, but I just don't think it was as hard-hitting or as unforgettable as Office Space. Maybe Judge has lost his touch over the years? Or maybe it's just impossible to top Office Space? The story about Mila Kunis' character screwing over, well, pretty much everyone, was a bit annoying. Everything worked itself out perfectly in the end, which was also a bit boring. There are some great moments and I found myself appreciating Judge's humor, but overall I don't think it was that amazing. Though I do have to say I loved Ben Affleck's character more than any others in the movie - always hilarious!
What did you think of Extract? Is Mike Judge back with another truly great comedy or not?
