CHICOPEE, Mass (WWLP) - Being a single mom couldn’t possibly be the shallow soap opera Tyler Perry conjures up for “The Single mom’s Club”.

Perry’s light heart version of single mom struggles is so sugar coated, you’ll wonder why divorce is even considered a social problem?

As with most Tyler Perry movies, his perky characters are types rather than real people.

Diverse single mom’s from different walks of life have much in common.  Rekindling their love lives, battling workplace sex discrimination, and problem kids lashing out.  Others have developed a touch of bitterness and mistrust toward the opposite sex.

Tyler Perry steps out from behind the camera long enough to play a divorced dad who thinks he’s the charming answer to a single mom’s needs.

“The Single Mom’s Club” is just a bit too wishy washy for my taste as social commentary.  But when the writers make with the jokes the film’s on much firmer ground.

“The Single mom’s Club” really Isn’t a bad way to spend the evening as long as you don’t expect too much in the way of Insight.

This Tyler Perry effort ends up with as much as Perry’s soap operas usually deserve and that means two stars.

And It also means you just won’t have as good a time with “The Single Mom’s Club” as you were hoping for.
