Storyline

When Army Colonel Griff Carson returns home from Germany on a two-month leave, he considers retiring if he doesn't get promoted to General. Being away on deployment has been hard on Griff, separating him from his wife Janet and two teenagers, Kim and Ollie. With his kids growing up and his wife busy opening a second bakeshop with a slimy business partner, Griff suddenly feels he no longer fits into his own family. Hoping to give him a sense of duty, Janet assigns him to help run her quaint cupcake shop. At first reluctant, Griff starts to take a military approach to his new job, never expecting it to backfire. Soon the bakery is a war zone, and one final screw-up almost sends the place up in smoke. Frustrated, Janet threatens to cut him out of their lives for good if he can't adjust to civilian family life. Refusing to give up, Griff is determined to prove to his family he's ready to be a full-time father, or else face the lonely life of a solitary military man. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

At about the 1 hour 40 minute point, there is a little league batter up to bat, and there are frequent shots of the batter, and then of the crowd, and then back again. Well, each time, the soft baseball hat, under the batting helmet gets turned around, first it is towards the front, and then it is turned around backwards, and then it is turned back to the front again. This happens like 5 times in a row. See more »

Army Colonel Dean Cain has been told by his commander General William R. Moses that there might be a star in his future as well. So with him on the short list for general he takes some leave and goes home to be with wife Kristy Swanson and his two kids.

I have to say this was one unusual service family. Why Swanson and the kids were not living on post with him escapes me completely. She does however run a nice little bake shop where cupcakes and coffee are served, cooked with the loving hand of Donna Pescow.

Idleness is not his thing so with Swanson tied up with some town business Cain goes to work helping out at the cupcake place. Let us say that the military mind was not really suited to the kind of business his wife runs. A number of comic situations ensue.

Operation Cupcake has some amusing moments and fans of the leads will no doubt enjoy the film. Best performance in the film is that of Ryan Bittle who is a real snake in the grass looking to take advantage of a potential rift with Cain and Swanson.

Cain prevails of course, but he ain't no superman.
