It’s one of the rare films that have a 0% rating on Rotten Tomatoes (of course that’s cause only 11 people watched the movie), It’s Pat was a 1994 flick based off the popular Saturday Night Live character. The film centered on Pat, an obnoxious job-hopper of indeterminable sex who is searching for a steady foundation in life. What does that mean? It means the running joke was that we never knew if Pat was a guy or a girl. Great for a sketch, even a couple of them, but for a full length movie….no thank you.
The film opened in three cities, and allegedly grosses only $60,822. Not only was it a box office failure but the critics ate it alive. “Shocking unfunny” was one of the many poor reviews actress Julia Sweeney and the film received. The film was clear frontrunner to take home the many Razzie awards it was nominated for…that is until Showgirls won them all.
The interesting thing was that the plot (and sketches) always centered on find out Pat’s sex. And we never did figure out what he/she was? Did they ever solve this mystery? What do you think? Or maybe Pat was neither. Pat was an IT who had no genitals and pee’d out it’s butt. We’ll never know….unless they make a sequel.
