I previously stated that Harold Ramis and the late John Hughes were the greatest comedy writer/directors of the last thirty years. Mike Judge should definitely be added to that list.

His latest movie, Extract, is a sort of Office Space in reverse where the point of view is from a management perspective this time around. Jason Bateman is cast perfectly as the owner of a flavored extract factory who seems to be on the brink of being engulfed by the chaos of his marriage as well as his factory. Whether Extract is as great as Office Space or Idiocracy is debatable, but it is, undoubtedly, another notch in Mike Judge's belt of great movies.
