Extract - 2009

 


Joel Reynolds (Jason Bateman) is the owner and founder of Reynold's Extract, a flavor-extract company. Although his business is successful, he feels unfulfilled and frustrated due to not having sex with his wife Suzie (Kristen Wiig) in over a month, and must also deal with incompetence and increasing discontent among his employees. His best friend Dean (Ben Affleck), a bartender, tries to ease his mind with Xanax and various other drugs, but the strait-laced Joel refuses.

One day, a series of mishaps occurs at the extract factory, resulting in worker Step (Clifton Collins Jr.) losing a testicle. Cindy (Mila Kunis), a con-woman and drifter, sees 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 decided not to sue the company, after a "chance meeting" with Cindy, and under her influence, he changes his mind and hires local ambulance-chasing lawyer Joe Adler (Gene Simmons).

Joel entertains the idea of an affair with Cindy, but - in spite of their non-existent sex life - still loves Suzie and would not want to have any regrets. At the bar, Dean suggests hiring a male gigolo to seduce his wife, so that Joel can then have a guilt-free affair of his own. Joel initially balks at the idea, but - after his judgment is impaired by an accidentally administered dose of Special K - eventually accepts and the two hire Brad (Dustin Milligan) to pose as a pool cleaner and have an affair with Suzie. The next morning, Joel realizes what he agreed to and tries to stop Brad from going to his house, but he is too late, and Brad subsequently returns to have sex with Suzie many more times. After spending a night with Dean and his friend Willie smoking marijuana, Joel attempts to call Cindy, but soon realizes that he is calling Willie's number. Just then, Cindy walks into the apartment, and Willie punches Joel in the face.

Joel meets with Adler and his associates in the factory office to discuss the terms of the settlement. The workers, believing that the meeting is about a buy-out of the factory by General Mills, decide that they are tired of being pushed around and organize a strike. Frustrated by the unflinching negotiations of Adler and the disrespect from his employees, he storms out and goes home, where Suzie admits that she had an affair with Brad. Joel admits he hired Brad to sleep with her, and Suzie gets very upset so Joel decides to get out of the house.

Joel moves into a motel where he spots Cindy staying in another room. When he goes to her room, he notices a purse that looks like one belonging to one of his employees that was stolen, as well as other stolen items, and realizes that she is attempting to scam the company and Step. He begins to call the police, but Cindy breaks down in tears. At first Joel believes that she is attempting to gain his sympathy again, but when he is convinced that her tears are real, he softens, and the two spend the night together. The next morning, Cindy disappears, but leaves the stolen items behind.

Step meets with Joel at the factory to tell him he is dropping the lawsuit, and Joel promotes him to floor manager. Meanwhile, while cleaning the pool herself, Suzie loses her temper with her annoying, overly talkative neighbor Nathan (David Koechner); just as she is finishing her tirade, he collapses and dies. Feeling that she may have caused his death, Suzie attends the funeral, where she runs into Joel. After a few awkward moments, the two share a ride home, hinting at a possible reconciliation. It is revealed that Cindy has scammed Adler and ends up stealing his luxury car, replacing it with Step's beat up old truck.
