Zack Ward portrays Postal Dude in Uwe Boll's film adaptation of the game. Ward describes the character as somebody who just wanted to be liked and accepted. Ward said that he did not base his performance as Postal Dude on the video game renditions as he never played them, but on the script. Though the film has elements from both Postal and Postal 2, the character of Postal Dude was completely changed. In an interview with Gamasutra, Vince Desi commented that Ward as Postal Dude "has the look and he’s funny at the same time."
Postal Dude is mocked in a job interview, his local unemployment office kicks him out, and his wife cheats on him. He decides to get some money to leave Paradise, so he teams up with his Uncle Dave, who owes the government over a million dollars in taxes, to devise a plan to steal a shipment of 2000 Krotchy dolls, toys resembling a scrotum that seem to be really popular in Paradise, and to sell them in $4000 dollars each doll. When they arrive to the amusement park where the shipment is expected to arrive, Postal Dude and Uncle Dave's religious cult face opposition from Al Qaeda, who also want to steal the shipment for their own purposes. The two groups fight each other, resulting in the deaths of many innocent children, but the cult manages to get the shipment and Verne Troyer, the park's opening day guest.
When they arrive to the cult's compound, they discover that the place has been invaded by terrorists, so they take shelter in the compound's bunker. Once there, Uncle Dave's right man hand Richard proceeds to initiate apocalypse per Uncle Dave's fictional bible, by throwing Verne Troyer to a group of chimpanzees to rape him, and then to kill Dave himself. After doing so, Richard imprisons Postal Dude in the bunker. After escaping from the compound, Postal Dude goes postal and begins a one-man war against his wife and his lovers, his uncle's murderer, the terrorists, the police, the angry townsfolk who want him dead, and the remains of the now-mad cult. He is joined by Faith, a young barista whom he has met before, and the two of them proceed to kill everyone except Osama bin Laden, who manages to escape with the help of a helicopter sent by his best friend George W. Bush. Postal Dude then prepares to leave the town along with Faith and Champ before it gets hit by 30 nuclear missiles unleashed by China in retaliation for Bush's declaration blaming China and India for the violence in Paradise.
