I didn't expect too much from this but it is surprisingly an entertaining movie.
Extract is a 2009 American comedy film written and directed by Mike Judge. Extract stars Jason Bateman, Mila Kunis, Kristen Wiig, Dustin Milligan, J. K. Simmons, and Ben Affleck. Judge also makes an uncredited appearance as 'Jim', a union organizer.
Joel Reynolds is the owner and founder of Reynold's Extract, a flavor-extract company. Although his business is successful, his marriage is now largely sexless. His best friend Dean, a bartender and pothead, tries to ease his mind with Xanax and various other drugs, but the straight-laced Joel refuses.
One day, a series of mishaps occurs at the extract factory, resulting in an employee, Step, losing a testicle. Cindy, a con artist and drifter, reads a news story about the accident and gets a job at the factory, flirting with Joel in order to find out more information about Step. Although Step initially decides not to sue the company, he changes his mind after a "chance meeting" with Cindy, and hires ambulance-chasing lawyer Joe Adler.
