Committee Head (as Pat Cronin)


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 <>

Skip this movie :(
8 December 2004 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie is advertised as something of a comedic look at the guys who invented breast implants. I expected some dark humor, and some good vintage 1950's and 60's sets. However what you really get here is a poorly told story, bad acting, hard to follow plot that goes from the 50's to the 80's. There's no way of knowing how much of the story is true from the movie. The ending is just plain stupid. I can't believe that they couldn't have done a better job with this.

The issue of the movie having a lot of breasts is mostly a non-sequitor. The breasts shown were non sexual props. There's nothing wrong with that, but if you're looking for titillation this movie doesn't have it.

What this movie is really about is how doctors and lawyers are greedy sleazeballs with no real interest in their clients. In that regard it may be something of a documentary, but I just found it making me angry.

Breast lovers won't like this movie. People who like comedies won't like it. People who like documentaries won't like it. Frankly I can't imagine anyone will really like it. So skip it.
