Consensus: The Single Moms' Club finds Tyler Perry avoiding some of the pitfalls of his earlier work, but continuing to rely on heavy-handed melodrama at the expense of sensible characters or absorbing storylines.

The moral here is that no challenge is insurmountable if you form a club. And keep a wine opener handy.

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

The title not only succinctly sums up the basic premise, but the totality of Perry's development of it.

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.

We see very little of the women's vicissitudes, or the ways in which they support one another through their club.

[T]his is a film about catharsis and camaraderie, not logic.

Entertainment Weekly

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?

SSG Syndicate

A contrived, formulaic, heavy-handed melodrama about camaraderie and the value of female solidarity.
