Storyline

A young plastic surgery intern gets tired of watching exciting developments in other fields (artificial hearts, etc). He finds a current, safe type of breast implants. All he has to do is convince his supervising surgeon this will work, and find a volunteer for the first patient. They gain immense financial success as cosmetic breast augmentation surgeries become accepted and frequented in American culture, but follow different paths. One becomes a narcissist interested in developing and implanting larger-sized implants popular with erotic dancers and female porn stars. The other continues to pursue a more serious, clinical approach for the everyday woman. Written by <rstory@revelstone.com>

Look at the title, this is one I had to see
14 March 2003 | by jmburkardSee all my reviews

When I saw this movie on the shelf at a video store. I rented it for the title alone. I didn't even read the back. I guess because there are leg men, feet men, and by now you can guess what kind I am. I had no idea what I was in for when I started watching this movie. It was directed beautifully and I think David Schwimmer did a good job. However I don't think this movie belonged in the comedy section of the video store. Very few of the scenes in this movie were funny to me. In fact after the movie was over I felt guilty for my original reason for renting this movie. Since then I've watched the movie several times, and each time I feel like I understand how women feel a little better. If you enjoy social documentary type films this is one you have to watch. It will leave you feeling like that movie wasn't that bad at all.
