Tyler Perry's The Single Moms Club is a lackluster empowerment fantasy that veers between dull and embarrassing.

The title not only succinctly sums up the basic premise, but the totality of Perry's development of it.

We see very little of the women's vicissitudes, or the ways in which they support one another through their club.
March 20, 2014
A contrived, formulaic, heavy-handed melodrama about camaraderie and the value of female solidarity.

This is the third feature within a year (on top of two TV shows) to come out of Perry's fast food, drive-thru productions. So it's not surprising that the Single Moms Club feels like it was slapped together by someone who is ready to take the next order.

[...]Single Moms Club cannot muster up the energy to be as insulting and offensive [or] as overtly, aggressively sexist as most of Perry's films [but the film] feels suspiciously like a glorified pilot for a television show[...]

The moral here is that no challenge is insurmountable if you form a club. And keep a wine opener handy.

In Tyler Perry's latest opus, "The Single Moms Club," he demonstrates how disparate stereotypes can find common ground through the power of a single clich.

[T]his is a film about catharsis and camaraderie, not logic.

Mr. Perry's latest film touches upon some recognizable and realistic challenges with efficient compassion, but there's probably more dramatic tension in a car pool than in this film's collection of predicaments.

Just wondering, but if these sisters are indeed capable of doing it for themselves as the film insists, why can't at least one of them do it without a man?

It's downright terrible at times. However, it's not nearly as awful as his two features that came out last year.

"The Single Moms Club" is almost good.
March 14, 2014
It quickly becomes a by-the-book, overly-simplified look at a quintet of single moms who find common ground coping with the challenges of raising middle-school age children and finding romance.
March 14, 2014
A stacked deck of one-dimensional demonstrations of female oppression, explored - and overcome - with Perry's typically well-intentioned but misguided notions of empowerment, 'The Single Moms Club' ranks among the filmmaker's worst work yet.
March 14, 2014
Tyler Perry's The Single Moms Club is a sitcom masquerading as a feature film. And given Perry's snowballing small-screen presence, an eventual TV show of it would be no surprise.

This is a club that you don't want to join.

In any other movie, the filmmaker would rightly be accused of trafficking in lazy stereotypes, but lazy stereotypes are the beachhead into which Tyler Perry has firmly planted his flag.
March 14, 2014
These are some great actresses, and with writer-director-producer Perry displaying some rare focus, you're intrigued at first by the possibility of watching them interact for a couple of hours. It doesn't last.

Insulting, but that's par for the course with Perry, who can always be counted on to misinterpret his own plots.
