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>

Breast Men Act Like Catty Women
27 February 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This is mainly a titillation movie for guys who can't get enough ogling of women's breasts. If anyone tells you anything else, they aren't telling you truth. The title, and what's on the video box, drove a lot of men to rent or buy this VHS tape when it came out.,,,not because they were interest in medical procedures!

I say "mainly" because there actually is a story to this, but it winds up being more of a soap opera with two men feuding - more like cat-fighting, than anything else. The first half hour, before all the fighting and feuding, was interesting but that's about it. So many women have had successful breast implants that emotional warnings of the dire results of such surgery - which is seen here - seem pretty outdated by now.

However, vanity, greed and everything else that goes along with some of these surgeries - the patients and the doctors - are not exaggerated, and some of the stories are pretty sad where so many people (as shown here) have such a poor self-image or motivated for the wrong reasons.
