Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Men at Work is a pretty racy workplace comedy featuring a group of four single male friends who work together and apparently have raging sex lives with a variety of willowy twentysomething blondes. Women and their feelings are treated very casually, even cruelly by the men, but it's all played for laughs. Parents will find plenty to be concerned about here, particularly the way female characters respond positively to oafish behavior and leap into bed as casually as a real human being might brush her teeth. But if your teens must watch, we suggest you watch alongside, so you can talk about the rampant misogyny.

Sexual Content

Wall-to-wall references to sex, ranging from the sniggering ("I'm not gay" one friend says to another when describing his unwillingness to have sex with his girlfriend daily) to the comically lascivious (one woman calls her boyfriend "Doctor Nailgood" when asking him to talk dirty to her in bed). Women hop into bed with these men frequently and easily, and there are implied three-ways and references to bestiality. Couples are shown in bed kissing, but clothed.


At least one episode features a near bar-fight that ends in the combatants ranking each other out instead of throwing punches.


"Bitch," "ass," "a--hole," and the like, often used to playfully insult friends. Assorted salty talk, such as references to "balls."

Social Behavior

Positive messages are very thin as the four male stars of the series crack constant sex jokes and make light of concepts like fidelity and responsibility.
