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.

I thought this would be a good film,due to the cast but like many of Tyler Perry films, this fell completely flat.This film lacked any true character developments and emotions.Like all of his other films, it has so many clichés and points out obvious issues as a joke.It has a lot of stereotypes; from rich white women who can't manage their kids,poor black women that cant get a break but has to stay strong for all her kids while living in poverty,working women that are struggling both juggling their jobs and kids and of course the single mom not looking for love but finds it.This movie is so hard to watch.It seems like everything in this film is forced from the awkward flat jokes to the wannabe heart-felt moments.It seems the more movies Tyler Perry makes,the less realistic and forced they become.Maybe if this was under better direction,like all his other films needed(except Madea films,there was no help for those)these would have been great movies.
