If you’re a single mom or have a close friend who is a single mom, then Tyler Perry’s Single Moms Club is a must see movie for you and your friends. This flick is a realistic snapshot into the lives of single moms and the strong relationships between women. Single Moms Club is funny, heartwarming and laced with just the right amount of romance.

Single Moms Club features Nia Long (House of Lies) as May; Amy Smart (Just Friends, Shameless) as Hillary; Cocoa Brown as Lytia; Wendi McLendon-Covey (The Goldbergs) as Jan and Zulay Henao as Esperanza as the single moms, each with her own set of challenges.

In addition to managing work, after school care and homework, these women are faced with the accusations of their kids:
“Why do you have to make everybody leave us?”
“I want to go live with dad!”
“You’re ruining my life!”
Single Moms Club follows the lives of five single moms brought together when their children are found spray painting at school. They meet when a teacher from their kids’ school calls them to a group parent teacher conference. The teacher, after offering some useless advice, announces that the women will have to work together to run the school’s fundraising event.
While working together on the school fundraiser, they open up to each other and realize that they have common interests. The single moms begin to form a strong bond of friendship and support and to examine the questions on each single mom’s mind:
- How can they find time to date, let alone take care of themselves, when their kids and jobs consume so much of their time?
- How do they deal with the anger their kids express about mom being with someone other than dad?
- Where can they meet men?
- When is the right time to introduce a man to your kids?
- How do you deal with your ex-husband’s shock that you are dating again?
Tyler Perry’s Single Moms Club brings the real struggles of single moms to the screen, dealing with the challenges in a humorous and touching way.
