The Single Moms Club

“The Single Moms Club” is about five women of various financial means who each have something in common. They are all single Moms. Their children all attend the same prestigious academy. The Mom’s are either divorced or the divorce is pending or in one Mom’s case she never married.

The movie takes you through the trials and tribulations that the five Moms deal with from parenting to dating to their individual job/career situations. Their first meeting is at the academy where their children are on the verge of being suspended. After meeting to discuss the situation, they decide to form “The Single Moms Club”. The story unfolds from there…

The movie is light-hearted and at times quite entertaining. The problem though is that some of the acting is very weak. Nia Long is strong, beautiful and her acting is very good, but I cannot say that for some of the other actors in the film. Think of “The Single Moms Club” as a two hour sitcom. You can easily classify this movie as a “Chick Flick”.

The Best Man Holiday

It’s been 15 years since the 1999 “The Best Man” opened. So in 2013 the old college friends attempt to reunite for the Holidays.

Old forgotten rivalries flare and old romances rekindle in this second installation. It seems time does not heel old wounds.

“The Best Man Holiday” has something for everyone, Love, Sex, Romance, Rivalry, Family, Loyalty, Success and Dishonesty. The story does a good job of picking up where the 1999 installment ended.

What makes “The Best Man Holiday” work is the strong cast. Everyone who was in the 1999 movie is back in 2013, plus a few new welcome additions. If you didn’t see the 1999 installment, that’s ok. The gaps get filled in.

Although the movie is entertaining, the mixture/combination of Christian Faith, Comedy and Raunchy Sex don’t fly.
