Postman Pat: The Movie is one of the best family films to come down the pike this year.
Los Angeles Times
Sure, there are lapses in logic. But nice messaging, some zippy dance moves and a great use of the classic tune "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours" end this charming, adult-friendly tale on a high note.
Without much in the way of nudge-wink Pixar-style humour and pathos, mums and dads are less likely to be quite so enthralled.
The New York Times
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.
I'd never want to stand in the way of artists pushing things, but messing with Postman Pat is probably a step too far.
Postman Pat: the Movie doesn’t get a stamp of approval.
The Hollywood Reporter
Postman Pat: The Movie is a mostly charmless and dark affair.
New York Daily News
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.”
Postman Pat: The Movie is a disappointment; a modern-day reinvention of a traditional, much-loved classic that differs so far from its comfort zone that it'll have a difficult time winning audiences, let alone maintaining there attention.
