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>

Trivia

Star Drug Store has been a Galveston fixture since 1917. Its exterior, with its distinctive ceramic Coca-Cola sign, is seen in several scenes, and Schwimmer's character uses a pay phone in the back of the soda fountain. It burned in 1998, shortly after the movie was released, and was closed for several years before reopening in 2001. See more »

Goofs

The final credits list David Schwimmer's character as Dr. Christopher Saunders, but the character is called Kevin throughout the film, and is not once called Christopher. See more »

Quotes

[a board reads "Susan - 36A, Saleswoman". The board claps. With her face out of view, Susan takes her bra off as she starts talking to us]
Susan: I come from a stoic, calvinist background. You didn't complain, unless you had something drastically wrong with you like a broken leg or lung cancer. Well, I feel crippled. I can't go to the beach, I can't get clothes that fit, I can't find a man, Hell, I *look* like a man. Gloria Steinem doesn't think that breasts are important because she's already got 'em.

Sorry surgery saga
28 June 1999 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

"Breast is better", nursing mothers were told, but to a lot of American men, "bigger is better." I suppose the only way for a man to know how a woman feels about this is to imagine a society in which, first, penises were displayed in public (as in some traditional societies in Melanesia), and second, where women preferred bigger ones (not terribly likely, though it does appear Gay men do).

This little rather over-dramatised documentary made for TV traces the story of two male doctors from Texas who developed the silicone breast implant, fell out, made fortunes from thousands of insecure women and then hit the liability wall. One of them, played by David Schwimmer, then had the entrepreneurial imagination, not to say hide, to make another fortune removing unwanted and defective implants. It's a wonderful trip down the Primrose Path to Perdition powered by affluence and primal urges. There are more bunnies than Playboy and more breasts than a chicken shop but it's not particularly sexploitational in tone. In fact it's a moral tale. Mobile phones combined with primal urges and motoring can be fatal. Seriously, this movie is a great deal better than it might have been.
