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

The parking garage scene is filmed from the roof of the Continental Center garage, with a building in the former Enron complex in Houston, Texas visible in the right of the shot. 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 »

Quotes

[a board reads "Valerie - 34D, Veterinarian". The board claps. With her face out of view, a topless Valerie talks to us]
Valerie: I won't say the operation didn't hurt 'cause it felt like a ton of bricks fell on my chest. But the first time I saw my two new best friends, I was like, "Oh, my God! It was worth it!" My shoulders fit me now, I have a waist... I've been reborn! I rock! This is the way that I was always meant to look.

Look at the title, this is one I had to see
14 March 2003 | by jmburkardSee all my reviews

When I saw this movie on the shelf at a video store. I rented it for the title alone. I didn't even read the back. I guess because there are leg men, feet men, and by now you can guess what kind I am. I had no idea what I was in for when I started watching this movie. It was directed beautifully and I think David Schwimmer did a good job. However I don't think this movie belonged in the comedy section of the video store. Very few of the scenes in this movie were funny to me. In fact after the movie was over I felt guilty for my original reason for renting this movie. Since then I've watched the movie several times, and each time I feel like I understand how women feel a little better. If you enjoy social documentary type films this is one you have to watch. It will leave you feeling like that movie wasn't that bad at all.
