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.

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.

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."

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.

Simply adorable...Plenty of digs at celebrity culture (including great use of Peter Gabriel's Big Time), TV and the film itself spice up a sweet, message-strong story, directed by American Mike Disa (Hookwinked).

Audience Reviews for Postman Pat: The Movie

½

Postman Pat as a movie is not quite good enough to spend money at the theater. Postman Pat is a television show in the U.K. and is very British in it's appeal. The movie centers around Postman Pat as one of the favorite postman in his small town of Greendale. One day a new boss takes over the postal facility wanting to modernize it. Postman Pat is busy trying to compete as a contestant in a British Talent show. He tries to balance his loyalties with the promise of a singing career, only to find he has betrayed his family, friends, and postal customers by ignoring the danger of his new boss who creates the Patbot 3000 to replace him & wants to use Postman Pat to promote it. The movie is silly, with cheesy dialog, and animation that is past it's prime. Sadly, it is not even in the same class as The Sponge Bob movie. If you are a fan of the original TV show it is very much a close translation.
