The Chronic: Extract

Here's another one from Mike Judge here, Extract (2009). This is by no-means a classic film, and not some of Judge's best work. However I watched it and enjoyed it, regardless of it not living up to the standard of other works from Judge.

The film follows Joel Reyn (Jason Bateman), the owner of a flavor-extract company, hence the name of the movie. The business is successful, however his marriage is not, sexlessness being the issue. During the film, Joel falls foul of a sexy con artist named Cindy (Mila Kunis), who takes avantage of a mishap at the factory, (An employee loses one of his fellas).

In this scene, after finding out his wife is cheating on him, Joel desides to unwind with his friend Dean (Ben Affleck) and a guy named Willie (Matt Schulze). Other than the fact this scene is just funny, there are a few subtle editing tricks that empathize the effects of the drug, to the viewer.
