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

The parking garage scene is filmed from the roof of the Continental Center garage, with a building in the former Enron complex in Houston, Texas visible in the right of the shot. See more »

Goofs

The red corvette that is totaled at the end of the film can clearly be seen as a prop for the film instead of a real car in excellent condition that Dr. Saunders would be driving. When it rolls over red overspray can be seen all over the undercarriage indicating a fast and cheap paint job done for prop purposes. Also, when the car rolls over you can clearly see it is missing the fuel tank that should be located at the rear between the mufflers on the exhaust system. Again, this is done for the prop to prep it for the crash scene. It could be said this is a factual error because the car would not have been able to be driven if there is no fuel tank at all. However, this was clearly a crash prop used in place of the real corvette that is in the film. See more »

More interesting than it sounds
4 November 2002 | by (Järvenpää, Finland) – See all my reviews

I started to watch "Breast men" completely accidentally because it just simply happened to be on and by chance I was suffering from a slight hangover so I was way too lazy to change the channel or even close my eyes. If I would have seen a warning newspaper in advance that said that they're going to show a true, tragicomical story about a two doctors who invented breast implants (starring David Schwimmer) I would have probably avoided the movie at all costs. Now when I was practically forced to watch it, I must admit that I kind of liked it. This is the type of a film you have to see all the way through once you've started. There was a lots of nudity (topless girls) and that's always a nice element in a film and surprisingly Schwimmer wasn't bad, actually this was an incredibly good performance from him. Best of all the story was definitely much more interesting than it sounds.
