Postman Pat: The Movie

2014-10-31 11:34
What's it about:

Pat, everyone’s favourite postman, comes face-to-face with the temptations of money, status and a shiny new suit when he enters a national TV talent show competition that threatens to tear him away from his hometown of Greendale and his family and friends.

What happens when kindness meets selfishness? When local fame meets Global notoriety? Will a nice cup of tea be kicked aside by a Frappacappucino? Pat is set to find out as he falls for the age-old temptation of the grass being greener!

What the critics say:

One of the best family films to come down the pike this year, and not just because this year has also brought us The Nut Job and Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return.
- Sherilyn Connelly, Village Voice

Viewers unencumbered by nostalgia will probably see this zippy, occasionally funny movie as no more frantic or pop-culture-addled than the average multiplex fodder.
- Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times

The 6-year-old I watched it with summed it up perfectly: "It starts out fun but then it's kinda sad and scary. And sorta boring, too."
- Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News

Since Simon Cowell and his talent shows are already over-exposed on TV, it's a real shame that Postman Pat's producers have rubber-stamped such a contrived storyline at the expense of originality.
- Graham Young, Birmingham Mail
