What parents need to know
Parents need to know that POMS is a comedy about a group of retirees who form a cheerleading squad. As Martha (Diane Keaton) begins to make friends in her new retirement community, her new bestie, Sheryl (Jacki Weaver), encourages her to achieve a long-lost dream of becoming a cheerleader. Together, they start a senior cheer club, recruit a group of other senior women, and set their sights on entering a competition. But when the only other seniors in the competition are high school seniors, the retirees realize they're going to have to give it their all. Expect plenty of sexual references and racy jokes, as well as some swearing and serious discussions about death and illness, but overall this looks like it will be an uplifting comedy that's OK for teens.
