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>

Trivia

Star Drug Store has been a Galveston, Texas 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 three years, before re-opening in 2001. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Real life story that is not funny, dramatic or even social history.
2 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

A young plastic surgeon comes up with a "eureka" invention which changes him and the cosmetic surgery world for good.

Despite being someone that did good for people - well in their own minds anyway! - this reminds me of one of those Average Joe tales where Mr Average stumbles in to history despite being unbelievably dull.

Horrible miscasting of "Friends" David Schwimmer as Dr. Christopher Saunders, he is totally wrong for anyone in the medical field. The guy might be good in comedy, but comes across as a bit goofy. Can the guy listen to anyone speak with his mouth closed?

The producers don't really know if this is supposed to be a comedy or a drama and given that there is no laughs I would side with drama. Yes there are moments of irony - who would want to be the first to try out something like this?

There isn't a movie in breast implants and the producers are finding it out the hard way.

Give it giant miss - unless you want to look at some bare breasts and can only justify it on medical grounds.
