Storyline

We call them by a hundred different names: boobs, knockers, jugs, hooters. We wonder if they're real or fake, too small or too big, too exposed or too covered. And every year Americans spend millions of dollars on breast enhancement, from push-up bras to surgery. Why is our culture so captivated by this particular part of the female form? "Boobs: An American Obsession" is a revealing, humorous, often poignant investigation involving everyone from anthropologists to porn stars as we explore our culture's fascination with breasts.

This is not a great movie, but the cinematography is bare. I really like this type of film. I will never understand the hate for this movie. I found it to be sensational. It's an amazing work and everything I had hoped for from an artistic standpoint. After reading some of the negative reviews on here, I just have to say that some people really don't get it. Unfairly dismissed by some as confusing, I have made the decision to award this film a rating of 7/10. From an artistic standpoint, it holds its own. No matter what any of the critics write, this film is utterly fantastic, a cinematic treat you'll cherish.
