Netflix and Chill: Extract
While scrolling through Netflix looking for a movie that I haven’t already seen 100 times or that doesn’t look completely dumb, I came across “Extract.” I was immediately drawn to this movie because it starred my ultimate girl-crush Mila Kunis. Though since it was a Netflix movie and I had never heard of it, I didn’t expect much at all.
Mila Kunis plays Cindy, a con artist who tries to hustle a guy who just got one testicle blown off in an accident at Jason Bateman, who plays Joel, company. Then Bateman has some issues of his own as well. He struggles to get home every night before 8 p.m. because after his wife (Kristen Wiig) gets into her sweatpants, she doesn’t take them off.
When Kunis starts working as a temp for Bateman, he is immediately turned on by her made-up fascination with his flavored-extract company. Bateman confides his attraction in his local bartender and best friend, who then convinces him to hire a “gigolo” to have an affair with his wife. This sounds like a solid plan to Bateman after he accidentally took a horse tranquilizer pill.
This movie has more to offer than just Mila Kunis. Without expecting very much from it being a typical movie you’ve never heard of that starts some of your favorite actors, it turned out to not be a complete waste of time.
Next time you are looking for a not-so-horrible Netflix movie, I think that “Extract” would be an entertaining choice.
