Opening: Extract, All About Steve, Gamer

by | September 4, 2009 at 3:10 PM | The Movies

Opening wide in a theater near you are three fairly different films. Office Space director Mike Judge is back with a new comedy Extract, and he’s enlisted his creations Beavis & Butthead to come out of retirement and help sell the film. We’ve also got Gerard Butler in a big-time action flick called Gamer, and Sandra Bullock has Hangover stars Bradley Cooper and Ken Jeong helping her make a moie that’s All About Steve.

In Mike Judge’s latest low-key comedy, Jason Bateman is the owner of an extract factory on the verge of being bought out, and when a gorgeous grifter Cindy (Mila Kunis) starts working there, he goes along with his drug-addled friend (Ben Affleck) and his ridiculous plan to hire an idiot gigolo (Dustin Milligan) to sleep with his wife (Kristen Wiig) so he can sleep with Cindy.


All About Steve

Sandra Bullock is Mary Horowitz, a quirky crossword-puzzle enthusiast whose blind date with news cameraman Steve (Bradley Cooper) becomes an obsession once Steve’s jerk colleague (Thomas Haden Church) fills her head with lies about him.
