Trivia

Goofs

In the final minutes of the film the blonde woman Dr. Saunders glances at is driving a Mustang convertible in what is supposed to be the late 1980s. However, in the windshield of the Mustang there can be seen a registration and safety inspection sticker. The registration sticker had been located on the license plate until 1994 in Texas. Also, the safety inspection sticker is in the shape of the state of Texas. This also was introduced in the mid 1990s. Prior to that the safety inspection sticker was rectangular (the rectangular inspection sticker was reintroduced in 2002 with the Texas silhouette in the center). In slow motion a "7" can be seen in the sticker indicating it expires in 1997 and was issued sometime in 1996. See more »

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.
