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>

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.
