About Postman Pat: The Movie
The friendly postman who has provided years of old-fashioned, reassuring entertainment for generations of children gets a feature-length movie with a misguided and hackneyed talent show plot. Pat (Stephen Mangan) has been denied a bonus by his boss Carbuncle (Peter Woodward), and he is upset as he wanted to use the money to take his wife on holiday to Italy. He sees talent show You're The One as a chance to earn some money and is able to impress the judges, led by grumpy Simon Cowbell. He proceeds to the next stage and has to leave Greendale, giving Carbuncle the opportunity to replace him with robotic, red-eyed Pats. The villagers begin to realise there's something sinister about them and the real Pat has to save the day.
