Not a good story development
29 March 2014 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

The story follows five single moms, each one with her own problems, got together and decide to form a support group for themselves after they meet at their teenage children's school. The single moms are Jan who is a successful career woman with a teenage girl whom she rarely spend time with; May, a fledgling writer with a teenage boy, and her ex-husband disappoints their son over and over again; Hillary who is a mother of three, with her oldest daughter is on the time of turning into a physically mature woman; and Lytia is a waiter with a guy crazy about her yet she keeps rejecting; while Esperanza has a boyfriend whom she keeps secretly in fear that her ex-husband will cut her off child support.

The basic story somewhat relates to many women, whether in the US or other English-speaking countries. No wonder this movie can manage to get to Box Office. The cast selection shows that this movie wasn't designed for greatness from the very start. The acting is achieved overall is thus a so-so. That thing made character development limited only to what the story and screenplay provides, that even those are insufficient. One more thing that boggles me is that the story is not given a chance to develop completely. It is as if the movie is forced to meet a target of being about 90 minute in length. The ending is even so abrupt because the final conflict is plainly strange.

For a movie that falls into Comedy genre on IMDb, the jokes are mostly corny or just plain not funny at all. There is the drama element, alright. But even the drama isn't developed well. And when there is a scene of heightened emotional moment, the acting spikes drastically from so-so up to overacting. One thing though, I was surprised to see Terry Crews here, and it is a comedy in itself.

I guess I don't really have a say on the other aspects such as costumes, makeup or music scoring and soundtrack. Not because they are bad, I think they are just okay. It's just that the overall quality of the movie is just relatively bad. So I guess this is the second time, back to back, Tyler Perry has made a movie that is not of a relatively good quality, after last year's "A Madea Christmas".

For me, it's a 3 out of 10 scoring movie. No, I don't recommend you to see it. Well, if only the story is developed better, maybe that'll help.
