Tyler Perry’s The Single Mom’s Club is a typical entry for the writer/director with inconsistent writing, one-dimensional characters and melodrama suitable for a daytime soap opera. Still, I suppose fans of Perry will enjoy it, though for me, it’s not exactly going to stand out by year’s end.

PLOT SUMMARY

When five struggling moms — May (NIA LONG), Hillary (AMY SMART), Lytia (COCOA BROWN), Jan (WENDI MCLENDON-COVEY) and Esperanza (ZULAY HENAO) — put aside their differences to form a support group, they find inspiration and laughter in their new sisterhood, and help each other overcome the obstacles that stand in their way.

SPECIAL FEATURES – 1.5/5

This release comes with a slip cover and inside the case is a redemption code for the UltraViolet Digital Copy. The features are pretty slim with only a couple featurettes: The Single Mom’s Sisterhood (11:10; HD) introducing us to the cast and The Men’s Club (6:06; HD) which showcases the fellas featured in the film…

VIDEO – 4.5/5

The Single Mom’s Club arrives on Blu-ray presented in its original 2.35 widescreen aspect ratio and given a 1080p high-definition transfer. The picture here is warm, clear and features excellent detail level through and through. It’s a fine transfer which is to be expected, though hardly a given, from a recent release.

AUDIO – 4.25/5

The 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track is effective though considering it is mostly dialogue driven, with some depth offered from the soundtrack, it’s pretty much centrally located when it comes to audio with some pop-ups for ambient noises.



OVERALL – 2.75/5

Overall, Tyler Perry’s The Single Mom’s Club is a typical entry for the writer/director with inconsistent writing, one-dimensional characters and melodrama suitable for a daytime soap opera. Still, I suppose fans of Perry will enjoy it, though for me, it’s not exactly going to stand out by year’s end. The Blu-ray does have solid audio/video transfers while the features are forgettable.
