Summary, etc.:
A wickedly subversive look at the role of comedy in exposing the pressures on women to be attractive and society's ambivalence toward cosmetic surgery. The film follows Jackie Hoffman, an award-winning comic actress, known for herself-deprecating humor, and Emily Askin, an up-and-coming improve performer, as they contemplate the possible impact of surgery on their career, relationships and self-regard.
