441th Review: Cutesy film with a message
17 July 2011 | by (the big screen) – See all my reviews

Mayor Cupcake stars Lea Thompson as a baker who through an electoral default ends up as the mayor a small mid-west town and sets about putting it to rights.

The film is enjoyable at face value, but the parallels to contemporary national politics are a little too blatant, so rather than an allegory it becomes a parable.

If you can just enjoy the film for what it is then it is fun and cute and has good performances.

A pretty film and one that works well if the small town values ring true with you - we find it a little off-balance to be deeply enjoyable, but all in all, a nice film.
