Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The moral here is that no challenge is insurmountable if you form a club. And keep a wine opener handy."
‑ David Hiltbrand, Philadelphia Inquirer
"This is How Stella Got Her Groove Back for the Pop-Tart crowd, a wish-fulfillment weepie that narrowly clears Perry's low bar, thanks mostly to Wendi McLendon-Covey and Cocoa Brown"
‑ Amy Nicholson, L.A. Weekly
"The title not only succinctly sums up the basic premise, but the totality of Perry's development of it."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"This is the third feature within a year (on top of two TV shows) to come out of Perry's fast food, drive-thru productions. So it's not surprising that the Single Moms Club feels like it was slapped together by someone who is ready to take the next order."
‑ Radheyan Simonpillai, NOW Toronto
""The Single Moms Club" is almost good."
‑ Sheila O'Malley,
"In Tyler Perry's latest opus, "The Single Moms Club," he demonstrates how disparate stereotypes can find common ground through the power of a single cliché."
‑ Peter Keough, Boston Globe
"Mr. Perry's latest film touches upon some recognizable and realistic challenges with efficient compassion, but there's probably more dramatic tension in a car pool than in this film's collection of predicaments."
‑ Nicolas Rapold, New York Times
"We see very little of the women's vicissitudes, or the ways in which they support one another through their club."
‑ Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
"[...]Single Moms Club cannot muster up the energy to be as insulting and offensive [or] as overtly, aggressively sexist as most of Perry's films [but the film] feels suspiciously like a glorified pilot for a television show[...]"
‑ Nathan Rabin, The Dissolve
"A stacked deck of one-dimensional demonstrations of female oppression, explored - and overcome - with Perry's typically well-intentioned but misguided notions of empowerment, 'The Single Moms Club' ranks among the filmmaker's worst work yet."
‑ Todd Gilchrist, ScreenCrush
"[T]his is a film about catharsis and camaraderie, not logic."
‑ Jordan Hoffman, New York Daily News
"Just wondering, but if these sisters are indeed capable of doing it for themselves as the film insists, why can't at least one of them do it without a man?"
‑ Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
"A contrived, formulaic, heavy-handed melodrama about camaraderie and the value of female solidarity."
‑ Susan Granger, SSG Syndicate
"It's downright terrible at times. However, it's not nearly as awful as his two features that came out last year."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Perry tosses in comedic moments when the tension gets too intense, but he doesn't do it at the sake of any of the characters. This is a movie about five interesting -- and funny -- women dealing with real world problems."
‑ Rick Bentley, Fresno Bee
