IT'S PAT
April 1, 2013  | By David Bianculli

Flix, 10:00 p.m. ET

 
In terms of film comedy, you could draw a straight line from Charles Chaplin as the Little Tramp to Julia Sweeney as Pat, the person of unidentified gender, in this 1994 movie. I don’t know why you’d want to, or what it might mean – but you could. Everyone knows that every Saturday Night Live sketch should be turned into a full-length movie… just ask Will Ferrell, who starred with Chris Kattan as the Bubati Brothers in that 1998 big-screen comedy film, A Night at the Roxbury. He must have learned a lot from that experience, because every movie he’s made since has been an improvement. As for It’s Pat, it also co-stars Charles Rocket, who left SNL after accidentally launching the F-bomb on live TV. And Kathy Griffin, who plays herself. Just think: “Pat,” Kathy Griffin and Charles Rocket all in one movie… and yet they never made a sequel. Let’s hope for them all: It’s Still Pat. Holding Pat. And, of course, the dramatic-departure spinoff: Pat on a Hot Tin Roof.
