Extract | 2009 | R | - 5.4.5

A man's (Jason Bateman) business is threatened when an injury in his factory might lead to a lawsuit that will surely bankrupt the company. At the same time, frustrated by the lack of romance in his marriage, he tries to get his wife to have an affair so that he won't feel guilty about having an affair with a sexy new employee (Mila Kunis). Also with Kristen Wiig, Ben Affleck, J. K. Simmons, Clifton Collins Jr., Dustin Milligan and David Koechner. Directed by Mike Judge. [1:30]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A woman hugs a married man, kisses his neck, they kiss and we see him wake up in bed and it is implied that they had sex. A man kisses a woman, she pulls away saying, "You're getting me aroused, and I'm getting you aroused…" and they stop.
 A young man describes to a man how he seduced his wife and we see him flexing in a tank top and flirting with the woman: she is lying poolside wearing a bikini, the young man applies suntan lotion to the woman's back and begins to untie her bikini top (we see her bare back).
 Two men explain to a young man that he should seduce the wife of one of the men and the young man asks, "Are you gonna' watch?" and then "Are you gonna' touch my [expletive deleted]?" A young man talks about wanting to sell his sexual services to a number of lonely housewives. A man talks about another man having sex with his wife for free and insisting that he should pay for the service. In an extended conversation a man tells another man that he should hire a gigolo to seduce his wife so that he can have sex with another woman and not feel guilty. A man talks in many scenes about his frustration over lack of a sex with his wife. A man talks about just waiting it out without sex until he is too old to be able to become aroused. A man talks about having masturbated after his wife turned him down for sex. A man tells a friend that he thinks a woman was flirting with him. A husband leans over to his wife while sitting on the couch with her and asks if she'd like to go to the bedroom and she says she's tired. A wife tells her husband that she has been unfaithful. A young man leans over to kiss a woman and she tells him "No."
 A woman in a music store is helped by two men who flirt and go out of their way to help her (she is wearing a low-cut top and a short skirt that reveal cleavage and bare thighs). A man wearing a bathrobe sits in a hotel room drinking champagne and wonders where a woman is (he's presumably waiting for a sexual rendezvous). A woman wears low-cut tops that reveal cleavage in many scenes throughout the movie.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A man driving a forklift in a warehouse stops short and spills a flat of crates: they fall and crack a pipe that is under pressure and shoots a projectile toward a man striking him in the crotch (we see him bend at the waist and fabric from the crotch of his pants is shown tearing away; we hear that he lost one testicle and doctors tried to save the other).
 A woman yells at a man, he cringes and then falls to the ground dead (we see him lying motionless, we then see him in an open coffin at a funeral and we see people grieving at a cemetery). A man punches another man in the face (we see him raise his fist, the screen goes black and we see the victim later with a bruised eye and a cut on his cheek). A man lunges at another man who falls off his chair and onto the floor.
 Two women yell in several scenes about a co-worker's lack of skill on an assembly line. A man yells at a young man and threatens him. A man yells at a young man and threatens him. A man yells at a man in several scenes. A woman makes racist remarks about a co-worker and accuses him of stealing her purse. A man accuses a woman of stealing another woman's purse, a man's wallet and another man's watch. A man yells at another man and the man cringes. A man says, "I could put my fist through somebody's skull."
 A man in a factory slips on a liquid spill and falls on the floor. A woman steals a guitar from a music store, a purse, a wallet and a watch from co-workers, a pick up truck and a car.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
