Sex and the Single Mom

Busy career woman -- and busier single mom -- Jess Gradwell (Gail O'Grady) certainly has her hands full raising her 15-year-old daughter Sarah (Danielle Panabaker), who is eager and anxious to begin experimenting with sex. Jess' admonitions to her daughter to remain a virgin become a matter of "do as I say, not as I do" when Jess herself begins a torrid affair with the recently divorced Dr. Alex Lofton (Grant Show). And when Jess announces that she is pregnant, Sarah goes off the deep end, lambasting her mother for her perceived hypocrisy and feverishly chasing after everything in pants. As the story unfolds, we learn that Jess' plunge back into motherhood is not motivated by mere selfishness -- while Sarah learns the hard way that there is a big, big difference between love and lust. Made for cable, Sex and the Single Mom premiered September 8, 2003, on the Lifetime network.

I hate that stupid guy and his cheesy motorcycle! This movie was quite annoying. It was full of stereotypes about women while proclaiming to be progressive. Many women are not that naive. Also, the final quote in the move from the mother to daughter after their romantic fooleshness, "I don't know why women always associate sex with love, that is just the way we are." No, that is not "just the way we are," that is the way women are socialized in our society. Thsi movie portrays women and teenage girls as utterly stupid and that is really nerve racking! It also sends many discouraging messages to women about themselves.
