Movie Info

Who and what is Pat? That is what everyone in this little comedy is trying to find out. "Pat," the little androgynous character created by comedian Julia Sweeney, first appeared in a series of sketches on the TV show "Saturday Night Live." Like the early sketches, the film focuses on people's attempts to determine Pat's true gender.

Critic Reviews for It's Pat

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (2)

Ever hear the one about the pic that was too bad to be released, so it escaped? Well, that old joke now has a new punch line: It's Pat, a shockingly unfunny Saturday Night Live spinoff.

It's Pat offers a simple message of self-acceptance, asserting that what counts is who you are rather than what your gender may or may not be. The trouble is that its telling is truly terrible.

The story goes nowhere, and if the film ran longer than its 80 minutes, it would have become too tedious to tolerate.

Which is more confusing...Pat's questionable gender or this dud's attempt to force a chuckle from our incredulous faces?

One-joke Saturday Night Live-based comedy. Yecch!

Audience Reviews for It's Pat

It's Pat delivers on stretching the one note premise into a feature length film if you can stomach the characters. I can. Cute movie with a substantial cameo by the band Ween. Charles Rocket is great as the neighbor who drives himself crazy trying to deduce Pat's gender.


Until the end, nobody want to know what it's Pat.

This movie is just as outrageous and creepy as the SNL skits that spawned it, well maybe even more creepy. I didn't find Pat very funny on the show, and if you didn't either, I would not recommend this movie.
