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.

Boobs is A Must See !!!
11 February 2010 | by bcarr-1See all my reviews

I saw this film at a private screening just before it was released and it is a very well done, informative documentary with great "visuals". As much I as enjoy the subject and thought I knew a great deal about it/them, the producers chose very interesting ways to look at "Boobs". Seriously, the interviews were fantastic, from regular women to amazing porn stars you get to hear and SEE why women and men are so obsessed with this body part. But it's not all just about Boobs as a sex object; the film looks historically at men and women's obsession with size. It is a must see for anyone who has them or loves to look at them … now who does that not include?
