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>

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 »

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.
