The Single Mom's Club is maternal mayhem as a group of single women are brought together though a vandalism incident. They create a support group that lets them laugh at life and help each other through the rough spots. It is written and directed by Tyler Perry. This means that there may be some content that is not appropriate for all audiences, according to this movie review.
This movie is written and directed by Tyler Perry. Those who are familiar with Medea are familiar with the brand of humor that Perry can dish out. Despite the potential for Tyler Perry brand humor, the movie begins with some realistic situations with some troubled teens. The Moms in this movie are stressed out and their kids are typical teens. There are thematic elements about divorce, abandonment and other issues that may disturb certain people. The Moms are struggling and the stress level is high. The parents are brought together when their children are caught spray painting school property. They must attend a support group and make amends with the school.
As this group of Moms gets to know each other, they navigate the world of dating. There a few sexual references as they meet men. There are also a few racial comments too. The single Mom's club is unique, but is not necessarily geared towards children. The themes in the movie portray unique situations. The teens in the movie are portrayed as troubled delinquents. The focus of the action in the movie is on the Moms rather than the kids.
This move is not for the small children of the family, and was not meant for them. This is a chick flick that Moms, single or not, will relate to on some level. Your kids might not want to see a movie that is about a ragtag bunch of grownups going to PTA meetings and organizing school functions. This move is humorous, but only if you happen to be a Mom and can relate.
