"Mayor Cupcake" is a genuinely refreshing movie. In an era of copycat films, this film stands apart. I give this film an extra star for originality, and a unique view.

Happily, this film does not have violence copied from the films of Quentin Tarantino. Nor does it contain vampires from the Twilight films. Nor does it have nude bedroom scenes.

What this film does have is a subtly understated response to political corruption in small town America. Bridgeville is an actual town in the state of Delaware, and it really does have an Apple Scrapple Festival and a World Championship Punkin Chunkin. But Bridgeville, in this story, also has an enormous deficit caused by excessively greedy and corrupt town officials.

An unusual set of circumstances puts Mary Maroni (Lea Thompson) into the position of Mayor Cupcake. Mary is a "cupcake maker," but the title Mayor Cupcake gives a misleading impression of a soft approach to the town's problems. What transpires is anything but soft. And with the help of and creative input from dozens of previously ignored and downtrodden citizens, the possibility of solving the town's fiscal problem transforms from a dream into a working plan.

The acting is marvelous by Lea Thompson, Judd Nelson, Maddie Deutch, Zoey Deutch, and the rest of the cast. Excellent casting in this film makes even the smallest roles memorable.

"Mayor Cupcake" is a film that the entire family can--and should--see together. Lots of little touches add up to a very entertaining, heartwarming and uplifting film.

great movie of female awakening to the desire to do the right things in government. an accidental promotion to mayor launches an entrepreneur into an effective, although short lived, city leadership. wrongs are quickly righted and good government prevails.

You have to admit it's a catchy movie title. So, blame one of Mary Maroni's three teen daughters: Lana, she's the daughter infatuated with politics, the one who secretly places her mom's name on the ballot for the mayoral candidacy. So, this and that happens, and now guess what? Mary Maroni (Lea Thompson) - high school dropout, busy housewife, and the local diner's cupcake chef - ends up nabbing the post on a technicality and on the strength of 32 votes. Can Bridgeville, Delaware's accidental mayor find a way to revitalize a dying town what's mired in crippling debt?

There's an old school, feel-good Capra-esque vibe to this movie that grabbed me. Here's an ordinary person who's plucked out of her mundane life and is put in an unexpected situation and who, because she's got gumption and a sort of homespun wisdom, somehow manages to overcome all obstacles. I don't know that we even needed the extra oomph of the old political guard conspiring against her. It was interesting enough watching Mary Maroni try to dig Bridgeville out of its deep, deep hole. Her methodology is unorthodox and unpopular. She conducts her mayoral duties in the bakery she works in, which is cozy and cute. Except there's actually a really poignant story behind her refusal to darken the threshold of city hall.

But here's what's really got the townspeople in an uproar: To lower the town's debt, Mary Maroni effects sweeping changes. She sells three police cruisers. She turns out street light and cancels trash pickup. She reduces city employees' pay by 25%. You'd think the scenes of her conducting those town hall meetings would be better attended, what with the citizens riled up to an almighty gripe.

I always enjoy Lea Thompson. Saw when I heard this movie was filmed 35 mins from my house I had to buy a copy. I live near Bridgeville DE and the diner they used (Jimmy's Grill) is a popular one in these parts. Seeing the history of the town in the movie was interesting though it may be all fictional. Need to check to see if they used true historical facts even though the characters are fictional.

This is a GREAT under rated movie about politics in small town America! It proves that if a logical preson cares enough they can make a difference.
I showed it to my 71 yr old Mom & my 30 yr old husband. They both Loved it!! My husband is a successful film maker & the biggest critic.
