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.

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.

As children's entertainment, [it] is pretty wretched. Character designs are rudimentary, plot points are set up and never paid off, and halfway through the closing musical number the animators appear to forget that Pat is meant to be moving his lips.

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.

There's a TV talent quest, an ambitious efficiency expert, an army of postman robots and an endearing protagonist worth rooting for. It's a colourful adventure filled with charm and humour that the whole family will love

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."

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).
