Tyler Perry's The Single Moms Club

Tyler Perry, the director who likes his names in his titles, may be nuance adverse. If you're a movie-goer, and the Movie Slut sure hopes you are, you know this before buying your ticket.

In this film, he sets out to show that single moms, no matter their ethnicity or socioeconomic status, have the same problems. And while sociologists might delve into the phenomenon more deeply, that's not why fans flock to Tyler Perry's flicks.

Here, he brings together five women whose only commonality is being single moms with kids in the same school. When their children get in trouble, they're summoned to the principal's office. Each women has a different reason for her minus-one status, but they soon discover that what unites them is more than what divides them.

And as they say, the rest is a Tyler Perry movie.
