(B, Cap, Pa, FR, LL, V, SS, N, A, M) Light moral worldview of family and giving to your family but marred by sexual commentary, plus woman says she will work hard rather than just be on welfare and woman fights hard for her child to stay out of trouble on the streets; 13 obscenities, five profanities; very little to no violence though mentions of robbery, women hits man but in a sexually aggressive way; implied sex out of marriage, women go to strip club but nothing is seen more mentioned, sexual dialogue with mentions of man’s crotch and mentions that other women need sexual relations; woman and man in underwear; drinking; no smoking or drug use; and, some dysfunctional family issues.

THE SINGLE MOMS CLUB is a Tyler Perry movie about the lives of five single mothers who bond together. THE SINGLE MOMS CLUB has mediocre acting but some nice elements, though it doesn’t have the strong Christian elements Tyler Perry included in his earlier movies.



Jan is a successful businesswoman who’s also decided to raise a child on her own. Jan goes to a meeting with the principal of her child’s school and meets four other mothers with their own stories.



Hillary is in the midst of a divorce, having three children to take care of but not knowing how. At the same, May has been raising a child by herself for some time, as her husband has been out of the picture. Lytia works at Waffle House and has several children, two of which are in prison and the younger three she is trying to protect from that happening again. Esperanza has a child with a man who has married another women but is still paying for all of Esperanza’s expenses along with their child’s.



The principal has called each mom because their children have acted up by tagging the walls of the school. The principal tells the moms that the prestigious school requires the parents to get involved along with the children being disciplined after such incidents.



The moms show up at Hilary’s house. Seeing that Hilary’s breaking down after her divorce, they decide to form a club to support each other.



In each situation, the moms have become the parent that raises their children or child. What they find out is that, even though they come from different socio-economical backgrounds, they all deal with the same issues.

THE SINGLE MOMS CLUB has some nice elements. However, it doesn’t have enough direct conflict. Also, the child actors could have used better direction. That said, the movie concerns itself with the increase of single mothers in our society. It acknowledges that this scenario isn’t preferred in any way, shape, or form. Also, the mothers in the movie do have great hearts for their children and their children’s needs. In the story, they find men to help fill the position of father for their children. However, THE SINGLE MOMS CLUB contains some lewd dialogue and no really overt Christian content like earlier Tyler Perry movies.

THE SINGLE MOMS CLUB could have been much better.
