are the heart of Carbunkle’s evil scheme. After viewing an episode of You’re The One, a TV talent contest, Pat throws his hat in the ring and competes for the grand prize, which includes a recording contract and, as fate would have it, a trip to Italy. Pt not only sings beautifully, but emerges as finalist and competes against young Josh (Rupert Grint) at the big finale in London. Along the way, Pat falls prey to the trapping of fame and fortune and becomes an unwitting pawn in Carbunkle’s little game. Josh’s manager Wilf (David Tennant), myopically focused on securing the recording deal for his client at any cost, stumbles upon the robotic postal scheme and plans to use it against Pat, thereby snagging the win for Josh. Meanwhile, Pat’s sudden thrust into the spotlight threatens to cost him the very thing that he holds dearest: his family, friends and job.
