Critic Reviews for The Single Moms Club

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (13) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (21) | DVD (1)

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

Top Critic

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 cliché.

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

This is How Stella Got Her Groove Back for the Pop-Tart crowd, a wish-fulfillment weepie that narrowly clears Perry's low bar, thanks mostly to Wendi McLendon-Covey and Cocoa Brown

Top Critic

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?

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.

Austin Chronicle

A contrived, formulaic, heavy-handed melodrama about camaraderie and the value of female solidarity.

SSG Syndicate

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[...]

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.

RogerEbert.com

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.

ScreenCrush

Perry tosses in comedic moments when the tension gets too intense, but he doesn't do it at the sake of any of the characters. This is a movie about five interesting -- and funny -- women dealing with real world problems.

Audience Reviews for The Single Moms Club

½

A mediocre movie that is not for everyone! Overall, once I finished taking in a midday viewing, I realized that The Single Moms Club came off as a very uneven viewing experience. The film drips with sentimental goo and shifts its tone from funny, to uncomfortable, to flat out depressing ever so quickly. There are some heartfelt moments between members of the cast that are effectively powerful. But with an underdeveloped conclusion, some embarrassingly bad line riffing from the actors as mentioned earlier, and a demeaning label that seems saddled to their roles, it was difficult to call this thin inspiring. In hindsight though, I didn't find The Single Moms Club to be a bad film. I just found it to be almost mean-spirited, too coincidental, and vaguely aloof. Let me put it this way, it's a "club" worth checking out only if you avoid going to all the meetings.
