Editorial Reviews

In the center of a storm is Ocean (Monica Calhoun), a 27-year old highly-motivated mother who manages a neighborhood apartment building and all of the problems that come along with it. Managing the building is a dream come true for Ocean. Not only has she secured a job with a title, but also managed to escape her family’s problems and the closet-sized bedroom she and her two children used to share in her mother’s house. Now, Ocean is juggling a new job, a new home furnished with only cardboard boxes, a niece who hates everything, her own two children and the needs of all the other tenants. Diary of a Single Mom illuminates the challenges and triumphs of three women struggling to create lives that not only sustain them and their families, but also inspire others toward more action and compassion in their own lives.

I love this and couldn't wait until it came out on DVD. I would tell any single mom or otherwise, to watch it!! The cast is remarkable and the storyline is so real, it's puts "reality shows" to shame! I would have loved this as a gift, but I don't mind having to pay for it at all!!

I enjoyed this television show, mainly because all of the characters were different. I appreciate how Townsend touched on a diverse amount of issues, such as the transition from being rich to experiencing poverty, racism, single parenting, alcoholism, GED, breast cancer, domestic violence, infidelity, widowhood ETC ETC. Although, I thought that the television show had gaps in the story, I would recommend viewing it on instant for $2.99 versus buying the dvd. Another option would be to visit the website and view MOST of the shows for FREE!

Opinions will very on this movie....but I enjoyed it. I rented it on Redbox and intend to purchase it for our singles ministry. I thought it was fairly well written and produced for a low budgeted movie.

I watched this last night! I really enjoyed Monica character (Ocean Williams) she was sweet, hardworker, tough at times and had her times when she was unsure about alot of things when it comes to life! She plays the role of a building manager where she inherits not only her problems. But everybody problems in that building, and let me tell you they are many! From the baby moma who acts like she don't have time for her own kids ( because she too busy partying), to the older lady Avon that has lost her husband and now she must learn how to take care of herself and her grandson ( by starting all over again), To helping her niece( who is dealing with teenager problems, trying to be a woman in a little girls body!. ( like so many young girls that I have seen out in the streets with clothes to young for them to wear it is sad thing!. ( Mother' OUT there PLEASE wake Up Before the wrong guy meets your daughter! She laters reunites with an crazy man from her past! Don't want to tell you all the movie! ROBERT TOWNSEND did a very good job with this movie and I TOTALLY LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT!

I was very, very disappointed because I thought that this DVD would should all of the episodes from beginning to end. It didn't, it is a make up of parts of each episode and don't even touch some of them. Thumbs down.

Ok this movie is nothing but the tv servies wrapped up. This is basically seasons one and two in this movie. The series is available online at pic.tv. I think the series is great,but it is too short. Each episode is no more than 15 minutes long. There are a total of 3 seasons so far and on the website season 3 is not completed. Do not know when the new episodes will be available. Mr. Townsend needs to give the people more of this.

The story jumps around abit and does not flow smoothly.
Above average acting . . . but not great.
cheap and cheerful but not a movie you would watch more than once.
