Tyler Perry’s The Single Moms Club
Stars: Nia Long, Amy Smart, Wendy McLendon-Covey, Cocoa Brown, Tyler Perry, Terry Crews, Eddie Cibrian
A group of five single moms decide to start a club to support each other. Said “support” consists of one mom playing babysitter while the other four look for love and kick up their heels at the club. Trying to make that premise funny is a challenge. Sadly, this film is not up to the challenge.
We love Nia Long and Terry Crews; and newcomer Cocoa Brown is a hoot, albeit in a stereotypical neck-rolling way. The shtick in this comedy is more farce than funny. The moms are clearly having more fun than the audience will. –p.d. lee
