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

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
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

I won't say the operation didn't hurt 'cause it felt like a ton of bricks fell on my chest. But the first time I saw my two new best friends, I was like, "Oh, my God! It was worth it!" My shoulders fit me now, I have a waist... I've been reborn! I rock! This is the way that I was always meant to look.
