Positive—Great film! I was a little concerned considering Tyler Perry’s non-Madea films lately, but it was clean and heartwarming. It’s safe for the family. The trailer shows the worst part of the film.

…This is a club that you don’t want to join. … The only things left out of “The Single Moms Club” are genuine humor and emotion. …
Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter
…muses on the travails of single motherhood and the ongoing battle of the sexes in a surprisingly sharp and funny female-empowerment ensembler. … gentle, touching and sometimes quite funny portrait of female solidarity (think “Waiting to Exhale” by way of “9 to 5”)…
Scott Foundas, Variety
…“The Single Moms Club” could have been much better. … contains some lewd dialogue and no really overt Christian content like earlier Tyler Perry movies. …
Ted Baehr, Movieguide
…has all the hallmarks of a poor sitcom — flat, hackneyed, unbelievable and too long. …
Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
…A mom-com with few laughs… While the subject is very timely and worthy, this lame tale just falls completely flat. … [1½]
Bill Zwecker, Chicago Sun-Times
