Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this so-so comedy is rife with sexual innuendo. And while the show's theme is about helping men demystify and better relate to women, one character objectifies and uses women on a near-daily basis.
Is It Any Good?
Adults who have navigated dating's murky waters will appreciate how Modern Men tackles age-old relationship issues such as trust, loyalty, and communication. But the jokes and innuendos might fly over the heads of younger viewers. Still, in the end, the three male leads come across as meaning well, making Modern Men a pretty harmless half-hour of fun, which parents can use to talk to teens about what to expect when they start dating.
