The Single Moms Club follows five single mothers from different walks of life who come together when their teen kids, who all attend the same exclusive school, get in trouble for smoking and vandalism. It turns out that the school makes parents get involved when their children act out, so the five women are tasked with organizing a fundraiser dance. The group consists of Jan (Wendi McLendon-Covey), a type-A executive who is struggling to hold on to her stressful career in publishing; Hillary (Amy Smart), a mother of three still reeling from her recent divorce, and who has the hots for her new neighbor; Esperanza (Zulay Henao), who is hiding her new boyfriend from her ex-husband because she fears he might take away his financial support; May (Nia Long), an aspiring writer with a drug-addict ex-husband and a teenage son who wants to know more about his dad; and Lytia (Cocoa Brown), a sassy waitress trying to keep her youngest son from falling into a life of crime.

The title express the entire story where five women from different backgrounds unite to one club base on same issue - to raise their kids on themselves. Certainly this is a fair piece of support to those with the same situations so that you will never feel alone and I think this is also the main message of the entire movie - support needed when you are having difficulties in life. However, the plot is kind of predictable and there is no key of excitement at all even the child missing part might be the intended climax but fail to do so. Overall it is still a touching piece if you are experiencing the same issue especially the confrontation scene between the mother and child, when they express their true feeling of love.
