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
Never before has one invention given America such a lift.

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
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

I come from a stoic, calvinist background. You didn't complain, unless you had something drastically wrong with you like a broken leg or lung cancer. Well, I feel crippled. I can't go to the beach, I can't get clothes that fit, I can't find a man, Hell, I *look* like a man. Gloria Steinem doesn't think that breasts are important because she's already got 'em.
