Just Go With It: Botox

This is a funny movie that talks about plastic/cosmetic surgeries. This is a great scene to discuss the use of a trendy procedure nowadays. Botox. 


Read the article from the Ezine magazine about Botox. But before you do it, tell the class what you know about it.

Botox procedures are performed through a series of injections. Medical professionals or dermatologists who are licensed to perform this procedure are usually the ones who administer botox injections. They are able to help their patients eliminate the expression lines and wrinkles that appear between their eyebrows in order to give them a naturally youthful look.Botox is a purified protein that contains Clostridium Botulinium Bacterium. This substance can drastically reduce the excessive activities of a patient's facial muscles; hence, allowing his wrinkled areas to stay smoother for longer periods of time.

One students reads about the advantages of Botox. Another one reads the disadvantages. Then they tell each other what they read and add other (dis) advantages of their own.


The use of botox injections has given people the chance to feel happier about their looks even during the process of aging. Since this procedure does not require people to undergo invasive surgeries, it has been considered as one of the best alternatives to more invasive operations. People who use Botox also experience the luxury of undergoing a fairly risk-free cosmetic procedure. Since the Food and Drug Administration has approved it, patients are more confident and relaxed every time they visit their physician for Botox injections.


Botox presents minor disadvantages to patients who want to stay younger-looking during the late years of their adulthood. The most obvious disadvantage of this procedure is the uncomfortable needle injections that it requires, which most people might not be fond of. However, those who are determined to bring back their skin's supple and smooth texture consider this as a minor sacrifice that they are willing to tolerate.Another disadvantage that it presents is its expensive cost. However, most patients who chose to undergo a series of Botox injections also found this as a very small inconvenience. They believe that this surgical procedure is worth every dollar it costs because of the effective anti-aging properties that Botox possesses.

Watch the segment from the movie Just Go with it and answer the questions.

1. Describe the scene.

2. How does the man feel about his new looks?

3. What about the two other guys?

4. What's your opinion about the results of the Botox application?

5. Was it the first time the character did it?

6. What would you tell him if he were good friends with you?



  1. This movie seems to be a great way to advertise Botox. Even if this procedure is the most popular anti-aging solution its developers do all they can to keep it on top.
    I think people should go for it because botox proved to be safe and effective for most patients. Only people that had it at home experienced a few side effects because the procedure wasn't performed right. I had botox in Ottawa at a good cosmetic clinic and I realized that if a qualified person takes care of you the risks are very very reduced.
