'The Single Mom's Club' is a heart-warming comedy about going it alone as a parent.
The Single Mom's Club is released today and critics have gingerly begun to offer their initial reactions to Tyler Perry's sassy new comedy. The film sees comedy master Perry stars alongside Nia Long, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Zulay Henao, William Levy, Terry Crews, Eddie Cibrian, Amy Smart, Cocoa Brown, Ryan Eggold.
'The Single Mom's Club' Sees Four Single Mothers Come Together To Support Each Other In New Tyler Perry Comedy.
The movie centres on a group of single mothers from different backgrounds who are brought together via a troubling incident at the school their children attend, which leads to the creation of a support group that helps all of them overcome personal obstacles and bond over their shared parenting trials. Together, they work through their problems, helping one another to find love again and getting their hectic lives back on track.
Feeling underappreciated and frequently undermined, many single mothers have to go through a lot to keep their children happy and to make sure they have as normal a life as possible. However, no matter how hard one might try, sometimes the children will inevitably get themselves into trouble and when five mothers of very different backgrounds are called into school when their offspring are found vandalising the school, they are forced to work together to organise and chair the upcoming annual fundraiser. The parents soon find, however, that they have much more in common than they initially thought and decide to set up a support group for desperate single mothers going through similar experiences. With new people there for each other, they help one another to find love again and get their confused and hectic lives back on track.
It's been fifteen years since the release of Harper Stewart's inflammatory autobiographical novel and the wedding of his best friend Lance, and now he is reuniting once again with his friends from college - also including Julian Murch and Quentin Spivey - over the course of the Christmas holiday period. He is now married to his then girlfriend Robin and he still has his friends in spite of some incriminating details in his book that could've ruined everything with the people he cared about most during Lance's tense wedding ceremony. But now he has more to contend with as he is reunited with old flames, former rivals and new arrivals who could shake things up again as Christmas approaches.

Are We Done Yet? is a follow-up to Revolution Studios hilarious 2005 family comedy Are We There Yet? and picks up where the last story left off. Now married to Suzanne (Nia Long), Nick Persons (Ice Cube) has bought a quiet suburban house to escape the rat race of the big city and to provide more space for his new wife and kids Lindsey and Kevin (Aleisha Allen and Philip Daniel Bolden).

The reason I find this so funny is because the out-of-order thriller consciously jumbles its supernatural narrative in an effort to dodge easy explanations. You're going to want to discuss possible theories with those who've seen it, which is exactly what I planned to do while working the Premonition press junket weeks ago.

The film, based mainly on Melvin Van Peeples' book about making the film, illustrates many of the difficulties that plagued it; from financial troubles and crew infighting, to the demanding logistics of the shoot and family dilemmas, all of which made the entire production nearly fall apart.

Jeff Collins (Omar Epps) is a recent Police Academy graduate. His first assignment is to infiltrate the city's largest narcotics ring and take down druglord Dwayne "God" Giddens (LL Cool J). In order to get close enough to God and make an arrest, Collins [alter ego J. Reed] is forced to plunge further and further into criminal activity himself. Clashes with the Captain (Stanley Tucci) over crossing the line between effective undercover work and unjustifiable violence, and a love affair (Nia Long), are mandatory sub-plots in the formulaic script. Every element of the story is underdeveloped and flat, none providing additional value or even distraction. It's too bad that Omar Epps' solid performance is buried almost as deeply as the pool queue God uses to torture a victim during one of his outbreaks.

A Generation X cautionary tale about greed and impatience, "Boiler Room" is a sharp-edged, adrenaline-driven movie that takes place in the eat-or-be-eaten world of crooked stock trading.
Populated by 25-year-old, overnight millionaires who wear their testosterone on the sleeves of their tailored Armani suits, this is an imposing, vigorous and pulsating picture that could have been mighty and portentous if writer-director Ben Younger hadn't cribbed half the script from "Wall Street" and "Glengarry Glen Ross."
Giovanni Ribisi ("The Mod Squad") plays an unscrupulous college dropout looking to make a quick buck with an underground casino he runs from his rented row house. But he starts seeing much bigger dollar signs when a newly-rich (and Ferrari-driving) acquaintance recruits him to cold-call moneyed suckers and pitch them investments for his suspicious brokerage startup.

Playing an inveterate womanizer as a sympathetic hero didn't work especially well for Michael Caine in 1966's "Alfie." He was Oscar-nominated for the performance, but his title character was a misogynistic, egomaniacal cad -- taking advantage of vulnerable women, then disposing of them offhandedly. Even when a vague health problem became a plot point meant to turn his life around, there was still nothing redeemable about the jerk.
On the other hand, in this year's "Alfie" remake, the irresistible Jude Law plays a more credibly charismatic and playful playboy whose contented superficiality steadily gives way to emerging self-awareness and perceptible depth -- which surprises even Alfie himself.
As the wily rake admits -- frankly, charmingly and direct-to-camera -- his concurrent affairs with a bevy of Manhattan beauties are a product of good looks, practiced flattery, an upscale metrosexual wardrobe, his English accent and the fact that he drives a limo.
