Review
by Kozo:
     Director Ivan Lai brings us this limp morality play about the evils of breast implants. Yung Hung is a flat-chested golddigger who gets her breasts enlarged to enhance her social status. In an amazing mirror of reality, she manages to snag a rich playboy with her brand new bazookas. However, those who attempt to deceive others will receive their just desserts, or something like that. Her implants become infected, a plot twist which is distasteful, to say the least. Meanwhile, the offending surgeon (Tam Suk-Mui) questions her profession.
     Seeing Yung Hung with a burst saline implant won't make any "Top Ten" lists for comfortable viewing experiences. However, that's nothing compared to the graphic sight of actual breast augmentation surgery, which director Lai decides to show us in all its full-color glory. While educational and certainly worthy of viewing by potential surgeons, the surgery sequences also have the effect of making a person lose their lunch. Bleah! This is simply another case of: do I really want to see something like this?
     Oh yeah, the movie is also uninspired and devoid of anything resembling a quality production. But hey, it's got surgery! (Kozo 1997)
