Equipped with his pilots license and a host of new transport options Pat proves no job is too big!. Cast Cast overview, first billed only:. Delivering in hard to reach places, from the top of a mountain to the middle of the sea anything from a giant ice block to a runaway cow! Pat lived at Forge Cottage in Greendale with his wife Sara and son Julian, who is six years old. Delivering in hard to reach places, from the top of a mountain to the middle of the sea anything from a giant ice block to a runaway cow! The first little while felt like an episode of the series and even the talent show story line at least made sense as Pat was doing it for his wife and not for himself, and Pat's always been selfless so that was great. Like Tom and Jerry the movie, I don't really like this as something connected to its respective series but rather its own entity. A chip off the old post box, Julian is a sociable child who enjoys spending time with friends and getting up to adventure—some real, some make believe.
His pet cat Jess also comes with him on his post rounds. I can't recommend it, really, but it's a guilty pleasure for me. After the first half-hour, it starts to lose a lot of its charm in favour for something I'd accept in any other animated film, but I still found it strangely entertaining. And honestly, I think the talent show plot was good enough. Though not the first of the screwball characters that became popular in the 1940s, Woody is perhaps the most indicative of the type. The show's themes are about learning, forgiveness and playful curiosity.
Pat is more than just a friendly postman delivering the mail, he is always ready to lend a willing hand to all the people he meets on his rounds. Equipped with his pilots license and a host of new transport options Pat proves no job is too big! I was already a little sceptical when they revealed the whole Robot Pat thing, but when it escalated into a bigger plot, this was where the movie almost lost me. You could have had the fame and attention get to Pat's head only for him to learn a lesson in the end and that would have been fine.

However, in spite of all of this, I found this strangely enjoyable, but more as its own stand-alone sort of thing. And before you say anything, yes, I know movies connected to cartoon shows usually try to differentiate themselves from their source material. Every time the movie did something to make me groan, like when the villain revealed his evil plan before it was too late for Pat to stop him and, probably the most painful of all, Jess not being able to tell the difference between his beloved owner and a robot, it managed to pull me back with either a decent joke or something equally entertaining. Patrick 'Pat' Clifton, infamously known as Postman Pat, was the village postman for Greendale and has now been promoted to head of the Special Delivery Service in nearby Pencaster. As if that's not enough, we also get a terminator reference and, yeah, is this really Postman Pat? Julian is an enthusiastic football fan, especially when it comes to his favourite club: Pencaster United. All-in-all, I can see why a lot of Pat fans don't like this movie. © 2017 Woodland Animations Ltd, a DreamWorks Animation Company.
