If you've ever listened to an episode of my podcast, "Cinema in Noir," then you probably already know that I'm not the biggest Tyler Perry fan. But, you've gotta hand it to the filmmaker, he stays working. And, perhaps more importantly, he keeps underappreciated talent employed as well. But, like for all his films, I will proceed with caution when it comes to TYLER PERRY’S THE SINGLE MOMS CLUB.
This is another one of those projects that is written and directed by Perry himself (and I believe he makes an appearance in the film as well). The synopsis reads as follows:
When five struggling single moms 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.
The cast includes the always fabulous Nia Long, Bridesmaids star Wendi McLendon-Covey, Terry Crews, Eddie Cibrian, Amy Smart and William Levy. As for the premise, I do like the idea of a support group (or maybe just a group of girlfriends, which I think sounds better) for which women can lean on each other and be open about certain challenges they face as single mothers. That said, who knows how the film will play out--and whether or not there will be some spiritual lesson strewn somewhere in the middle of it?
Lionsgate and Tyler Perry Studios just released the final poster for the comedy (shown above). Take a peak at the trailer in case you missed it:
