Product Description

Steve Coogan's legendary chat show host and broadcaster finally receives the big screen treatment in this comedy directed by Declan Lowney. Occupying a career stasis-defining role as a mid-morning DJ on North Norfolk Digital Radio, Alan Partridge (Coogan)'s hopes for one last shot at the big time suffer a severe setback when it emerges that his employers have been taken over by a giant media conglomerate. Alan soon finds himself back in the spotlight, however, when newly-sacked fellow DJ Pat Farrell (Colm Meaney) returns to the studio with a shotgun and begins taking hostages. Called in by the police to act as a hostage negotiator, can Britain's most famous Toblerone addict turn the tables and finally save the day?

No need for a story synopsis but just let me say that I am sorry this film was ever made.

You would think that by adding a ridiculous story line that hilarious comedy would burst forth. Well that never works in Hollywood and it has not worked here.

Alan Partridge certainly is a finely crafted character and is always shown at its finest when in full flow against characters that are, well more normal than he.

Here we get to see less of true Partridge and more slapstick and situation comedy.

I for one could not care less about a story line, a week in the life of AP radio dj would have been far superior. Or even a truck siege at Michaels petrol station.

Watch it hopefully you will get more out of it than me.

In this instance less story would have equaled more film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great entertainment 9 April 2014
Format:Blu-ray
I really enjoyed this. It's typical Alan Partridge. Like Mid Morning Matters, it never really hits the heights of his early stuff, i.e. Knowing Me, Knowing You and I'm Alan Partridge, but nevertheless it's still great fun and there are some moments of Partridge gold in there. I hope there'll be more to come.

1.0 out of 5 stars Alan, you hero.... really...? 7 Feb 2014
Format:DVD
Jeese..... on what planet was it a good idea to make AP an action hero?

I know, lets loose the central character's personality, and then make him the opposite, in this case a cooler dude.

Make it a "wacky" film, you know, slapstick like, revert to tradition, we all love a good british funny film.

Help!! This is bad.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kiss Its Face 16 Jan 2014
Format:DVD
Alan Partridge is one of the most quotable characters to have been on TV in the past 20 years, but he is not for everyone. Bearing in mind that `Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa' is a film about the character written by Steve Coogan et al. it would be hoped that those watching it would already be familiar with the characters and is oeuvre. This is exactly how I came to watch the film; as a fan of the man, the legend, the jumpers.

In recent years Alan has fallen slightly lower on the celebrity pecking order and is now working at North Norfolk Digital radio station. When the station is taken over by a larger company, not everyone is happy, especially Pat Farrell who is soon let go. Not one to give up easily, Farrell holds the staff of NND hostage and Alan is made to act as his spokesman - what could possibly go wrong?

`Alpha Papa' is classic Alan Partridge. This means that not only is it amongst some of the best work the character has been in, but very much in the same vein. It is true that there are slight diminishing returns from the character and although the film never hits the heady heights of `Knowing Me, Knowing You' and `I'm Alan Partridge' it is still one of the funniest films to have come out in 2013. A comedy film should be funny and this is exactly what `Alpha Papa' achieves. Coogan was at the forefront of a drier sense of, almost kitchen sink, style comedy in the 90s and 2000s, but unlike the too cool `Sightseers', Coogan et al do not forget to put in some jokes.

There is enough comedy on show to entertain both fans of the characters and non-fans. The setup is a cheesy hostage movie, but this acts as a great structure for non-Alan fans to join in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Norwich returns to normality after a tense time. 11 April 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love an engaging witty film which engrosses. It comes as a major relief from the constant baloney showered upon us on a 24/7 basis.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good fun 6 Mar 2014

This is a good film, but not as amusing as I thought it would be. It's more of a wry smile than a laugh out loud comedy. Nevertheless it is fun and worth a watch.
