Horrible for anyone under 20!

This show is another example of how poisoned our television has become. These men need to grow up and the moms need to stop being so horrible and controlling. This is definitely NOT an example of how a mother is supposed to be to her grown, adult son. This is NOT a show for children, tweens, adolescents or even teenagers. Garbage in Garbage out!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (2 ):

Although Momma's Boys could result in at least one genuine love match (hey, it has a one in 3 shot, right?), it's far too reliant on Springer-style drama that makes just about everyone involved look bad. There's also a level of genuine creepiness to the way that at least two of the mothers dote on their handsome sons. In short, this show won't change the world -- far from it. More likely, it will make the ever-rotting landscape of reality television a more frightening place.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
