The Single Moms Club Reviews

  • 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?

    Chris Nashawaty — Entertainment Weekly

  • 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.

    Nicolas Rapold — New York Times

  • 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.

    Claudia Puig — USA Today

  • 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 cliche.

    Peter Keough — Boston Globe

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

    Jordan Hoffman — New York Daily News

  • While the subject is very timely and worthy, this lame tale just falls completely flat.

    Bill Zwecker — Chicago Sun-Times

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

    David Hiltbrand — Philadelphia Inquirer

  • A surprisingly sharp and funny female-empowerment ensembler.

    Scott Foundas — Variety

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

    Frank Scheck — Hollywood Reporter

  • 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.

    Gary Goldstein — Los Angeles Times

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

    Michael Dequina — TheMovieReport.com

  • We see very little of the women's vicissitudes, or the ways in which they support one another through their club.

    Marjorie Baumgarten — Austin Chronicle

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

    Susan Granger — 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.

    Radheyan Simonpillai — NOW Toronto

  • [...]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[...]

    Nathan Rabin — The Dissolve

  • 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.

    Bilge Ebiri

  • An unabashedly-sentimental salute to single-moms from all walks of life!

    Kam Williams — Baret News

  • 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

    Amy Nicholson — L.A. Weekly

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

    Kevin Carr — 7M Pictures

  • "The Single Moms Club" is almost good.
