I find it interesting that some people don't feel this movie is worth watching even once; A few months ago I happened across it while lazily browsing the comedy section of Blockbuster, and I instantly remembered how my cousins and I used to watch it repeatedly for a several-month period about eight years ago. We thought it was hilarious, and we used to go around imitating Pat's annoying little giggle and quoting various lines. To see whether my apprieciation of this movie had had everything to do with my young age and nothing else, I rented it again and watched it with a friend. Not only do I still find it JUST as entertaining as I did at ten, but my friend loved it too.

Kyle, the obsessive neighbor who falls in love with the enigma of Pat and makes it his life purpose to find out Pat's gender, is really well played, and even a little creepy in the midst of all the comedy. Dave Foley's portrayal as Pat's...equally androgynous love interest Chris [well in truth, he looks more like a woman as this character], and the appearance of Ween [who rock, IMO] are just a few reasons I love this movie. I'm even able to feel sorry for Kathy Griffin, who plays a neighbor whom Pat won't leave alone.

While I think this film is a comedic gem, I'm not all that surprised that most people seem to feel differently. I'm not always agreed with when I mention the farcical brilliance of shows such as The Kids In The Hall and Strangers With Candy, both of which I LOVE for the way they go almost too far with the ridiculous strangeness of a situation or character.

All in all, yes, It's Pat! is incredibly stupid...And that's the POINT!! Laugh at the intended stupidity, because that's what it's there for.

"You wanna know another thing I hate? Senseless evil."

Having perused the IMDB comments for "It's Pat," it looks like most people genuinely LOATHE this film. I really don't understand why. Yes, there are only so many "is it a man or woman?" type of jokes that one can stand but, much like the MacGruber movie, there is much much more to the movie than the simple premise of the original SNL skit.

As for the Pat character, if you find him/her annoying as hell, then the film achieved its purpose. Pat's unfounded hubris and complete inability to self-reflect presaged many characters that are very popular in comedies today--e.g., Will Ferrell's Ricky Bobby and Ron Burgundy, or Danny's McBride's Kenny Powers. But again, the movie doesn't hinge on the Pat character; there is much else worth noting.

For me, the insanely fast, downward-spiral transformation of Pat's neighbor, Kyle, is absolutely hysterical and is worth watching on its own. Without his character, the film would have been considerably worse-off, in my opinion. Plus the film has all the senseless silliness of other SNL movies (e.g., Wayne's World), plus lots of great cameos (Dave Foley is great, of course, as is Tim Meadows, and many others).

In sum, it's really easy to hate the Pat character (which, again, is exactly Pat's purpose). Unlike, say, Kenny Powers, Pat has absolutely NO redeeming qualities. Thus, it is really easy to simply transfer hatred of Pat into hatred for this film. But watching it a bit more closely, and appreciating the clever, more subtle silliness of some of the film's parts, is totally worth it. If you like some of the more deranged SNL comedies (e.g., MacGruber and Wayne's World), I really don't understand why you wouldn't find this film funny.

This movie is funny, funny, FUNNY!!!

Best lines:
"FEEL SORRIER FOR ME!
"I'M PLAYING WITH THE WEEN!"
Any line by Kathy Griffin or Kathy Najimy or Pat (of course)

Favorite moment:
Pat trips while going to her/his gig with Ween (tuba in hand). Pat's glasses fall off and make a cheap plastic sound as they slide across the pavement. (Play this moment over and over and you will laugh till your stomach splits.)

If you need any more proof what I've outlined here, I can't help you.

Peace.

This is comedy at it's best. The innuendos, the crazy humor, the make you wonder "why am I laughing at that?" moments. It's all here. Hands down one of my favortie and most memorbale movies of all time that will keep you guessing (man or women), a cult classic all it's own...It's Pat.

Is this an Oscar-worthy movie? No. Is it a great 'SNL' movie? Yes! I adored the Pat character from 'SNL' reruns, and was encouraged to buy this movie by a co-worker who'd seen it many times on basic cable back in the day. Having never seen it before myself, I thought it was well worth the $5 or so I paid for it. I loaned it to my co-worker and he and his wife enjoyed it as well. It is what it is--not the worst or greatest movie ever filmed--but...(wait for it)...It's Pat!

It's really a shame that people haven't given this movie the chance it deserves! It's Pat is absolutely HILARIOUS from start to finish. It's been judged really harshly and that's not fair.

The character Pat comes from a series of Saturday Night Live sketches that ran in the early 1990s, which was the best time for SNL. Clearly the movie has to have some merits to have been approved by someone like Lorne Michaels.

Julia Sweeney is absolutely perfect as Pat, the main character. I really don't understand how she didn't have a bigger career after this movie, because she's hilarious imo. Putting in a comedy legend like Dave Foley really sent the movie over the edge. He plays Chris, another person of indeterminable sex and the love interest of Pat. The two have a lot of chemistry, I think! Charles Rocket, who was also on SNL, really gets to show how great of a comedian he really is. He's makes a great villain!

I think that the connection to SNL is one of the major reasons that critics have judged this film so harshly. People went in expecting another Wayne's World and didn't give It's Pat it's own chance to shine! The two have completely different styles of comedy.

It's Pat was DEFINITELY ahead of its time. The influences from this film can be seen across a lot of different comedies, like in Judd Apatow movies. It's Pat can rely on stupid humour a little too much sometimes, but that makes it even funnier! Everyone loves an easy laugh and this movie delivers.

People NEED to give this movie another shot! Buy the DVD and see just how great this overlooked comedy is!
