Tyler Perry's The Single Moms Club (2014/Lionsgate Blu-ray)

Picture: B Sound: A- Extras: C Film: B

Five working single mothers are brought together when their children get into trouble and get placed on probation together. Together, they inspire and support each other as the 'Single Moms Club'. Through obstacles, love and lost they learn how to be strong, independent woman ...AND have kids on the side.

May, Jan, Hillary, Esperanza, and Lytia all struggling single moms, trying to work and provide for the family. May deals with her troubled son who's father has a drug problem. Jan is a business woman who is too busy for her daughter. Hillary is a divorcee on alimony who's clueless on how to be a mother. Esperanza is learning to live her life with a all-too-mature daughter. And Lytia is a blue collared worker at a diner trying to earn enough money to send her son to school. All of them take turns on watching each other kids, so that the others can have a night off.

While I am all for the single working woman seeking to be strong and independent, being a parent means changes. It means responsibility in trying to make a better future for your child. Unfortunately not all marriages work out, there are single parents. In the film, it seems like the woman want it all, to get money from their ex's, work, raise kids, date hot single men and to party once in a while. So I liked it, but with reservations. Nia Long & Amy Smart head the cast.

The 1080p 2.35 X 1 digital High Definition image has some minor blur and detail issues, but the DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 lossless mix is very well recorded and more impressive than expected. Extras include Digital Copy, Single Mom's Sisterhood featurette and a Men's Club featurette.
