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 <>

Did You Know?


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 »

An enjoyable flick with lots of mammarian imagery
15 July 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I wish they had "made for TV" movies like this when I was growing up! This was a based-on-a-true story that was actually a composite of a handful of doctors that pioneered breast implant surgery. It is definitely a man's movie, but there was a message there for women. It has some really cute moments and it really nails that late 60s/early 70s time frame very well; being one who lived through it and remembered it well, I'm a expert! I believe it touched on all points objectively; the pros and the cons, and it touched on each players' hand in the entire chain --- the corporate side, the doctors' side, the patients who were happy and the ones who were not happy, as well as the health concerns. The manufacturers and doctors still claim that no research has ever proven they were liable, but something wrong surely was happening.

No, it's not "Casablanca", but it wasn't meant to be --- It's an HBO movie, folks, it's a fun movie made for fun, not the Celluloid Hall of Fame, so quit analyzing it and enjoy it. It's not in bad taste and it is credibly acted, written and filmed. On the lighter side guys, check out the mammaria, mama mia! Yes, this is a must-see for young male adults (and young adult women complating the procedure) and certainly should be on the list of "movies for guys who like movies".
