What parents need to know

Parents need to know that The Single Moms Club hews closely to a formula that other Tyler Perry movies follow: It's uplifting, mostly teen-friendly and, yes, formulaic. There's some mild swearing (mostly "hell"), open but superficial discussions about the hardships women face in and out of marriage; and some kissing -- nothing that most teens can't handle, really. Expect a bit of smoking and references to drug addiction too.
  • Families can talk about why the women in the movie are friends. What are their similarities and differences? How realistic are their relationships with each other?
  • How does the movie handle class and race? Are these issues discussed explicitly? What do you think the movie's stance is on differences of class and race? Did you notice any stereotypes?
  • Teens: Is there anything in this movie that you could relate to directly? Friendships between different kinds of people? Parents making rules about cell phones or behavior?
