Tyler Perry is making a ton of films these days. And The Single Moms Club makes another case that he is probably making too many.

The SMC, is about 5 single women in modern society that are raising children on their own, for various reasons. In each case, the father is not known, or around to help out sufficiently or at all. And in some cases is actually hindering the parenting process.  These women are from all walks of life, and mixed ethnicity's giving this a real diverse feel which is necessary.  The women all become friends by way of a school discipline of all of their kids. The women who don't know one another have to work together on a school dance as punishment.

Along the line, the women develop a bond as they all have many things in common.  They become friends and form this club they call, The Single Moms Club, where they support each other and help each other move on with every day things, and help each other move forward.   If this sounds uninteresting, you would be right.  Although, this is a movie that the vast majority of those who go will like, and the critics will hate.

One thing that is undeniable about this, the various story lines are relevant to many single women.  That is worth applause and gives this a bit of cred.  But there are just simply far too many problems here to save it.  Perry, who has a part in this movie, has a movie formula that works though. Make them quick, and on a budget, in one area and make them as topical as possible. They generate him a pile of money, and that's fine.  But the quality of the sheer quantity of the movies he is making, is really starting to suffer.

This is written poorly overall. And being brutally honest, there is some horrendous acting in this movie.  I mean, like whoa!  There are far too many characters, and and way too many sub plots to really keep you focused.  This tries to be a drama at times and a comedy at times, and it's neither.  What this is, is a movie that is begging a certain sect to go see it, and they will.  And because of the relatability they will like this.  But I think what they will actually like, is singularly the subject of this movie, and not the actual movie.


A bunch of the attempted humor is simply awful.  Really childish stuff by and large, and so old and over done it just doesn't work.  All being attempted by actors who don't specialize at improvisational humor on camera.  And it sticks out like a sore thumb.  Many of the situations are ridiculously stereotypical, and insulting to your intelligence.   In short, this looks like it was thrown together quickly, and without a great deal of money. The very formula that made Perry a reputable film maker is starting to catch up with him. The past few projects have really looked cheap, and quick, and that's a shame.

The Single Moms Club.  Just not good.
