Reviews

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?

Confession time.... Having never seen the tv show this wasn't high on the must watch list. However with good critical reviews and generally good word of mouth I was pleased when the opportunity to watch it came up.

Whilst not entirely my sense of humour there was a lot of entertainment to be had. As you all know by now Alan finds himself in a pickle when an disgruntled ex-employee decides to take revenge on the radio studio that sacked him. Holding his old colleagues hostage Alan is tasked to calm him down and bring the situation to an end.

Cue endless mishaps and dodgy quips as Alan uses the situation to bolster his flagging career more than making sure his friends make it out in one piece. The jokes come thick and fast and are generally well written and witty. There are moments where it feels like things are done just for a crude laugh such as Alan losing his trousers at one point, but you can't help but snigger at his misfortunes.

Overall generally a funny film. If you like Alan Partridge then I am sure this will be well up your street. For everyone else this is an entertaining, funny film

Steve Coogan plays Alan Partridge, a forty-something Norfolk radio presenter, who has hugely questionable social skills and a complete lack of diplomacy or tact when interviewing his guests. His small, local radio station is being taken over by a huge, global media corporation, Goredale Media, and making a lot of the station staff redundant in the process. One of the co-presenters, a feisty, fifty-something Irish chap named Pat Farrell, doesn't take too kindly to getting the boot, and takes the staff hostage at gunpoint and armed to the teeth with explosives and ammunition.
Alan soon finds himself caught in the middle of the hostage situation, and liaises with the local police force and Scotland Yard to try to bring the situation under control. The gunman Pat insists that Alan should act as the go between for the hostages and the authorities, and Alan unwittingly blunders his way into the centre of the drama...
Unlike in the wonderful Alan Partridge TV series, where characters like Alan's personal assistant Lynn, the hotel handyman Michael, and the Ukrainian girlfriend, feature very heavily, here they have much less prominent roles or else they don't feature at all, which is very disappointing if you're a big Alan Partridge fan like me. Equally bad is that Alan's character in this movie, somehow seems much less campy and deliciously foot in mouth than he is in the TV show, which is quite a let down. The shining brilliance of the TV show largely came from Alan's staggeringly inept bedside manner as a chat show host, but here that hilariously awful aspect of his character is strangely muted.
This is by no means a bad film, but it really suffers for comparison with the exceptionally funny TV show.

Disappointing really. Sets off in a similar vain to previous shows in his series that I love. However just fails to deliver on every level IMO in comparison to earlier shows. Hardly laughed to be honest. Still - mildly entertaining - not just one of Alan's finest moments in my opinion.

Never having followed the exploits of East Anglian local radio DJ and all-round narcissist Alan Partridge, but having gained the impression that the character was best left in the past, I approached this movie with fairly low expectations. Happily these were confounded, as the film’s razor-sharp wit, snappy dialogue, and larger-than-life characters were hugely entertaining from start to finish.
Facing being replaced with stereotypical yoof presenters, and deemed surplus to requirements by soulless new management, Alan is quick to dodge the bullet by cravenly putting the spotlight on friend and fellow presenter Pat Farrell, who is subsequently fired by the station. Congratulating himself on his quick thinking, Alan has reckoned without the vengeful Pat, who returns to the station with a shotgun, taking control and holding Alan and others (including the new manager) hostage. Cue Alan’s ineffectual attempts to talk Pat down, as the increasingly deranged former presenter proceeds to broadcast his old show once more, with Alan and the latter’s own co-presenter Sidekick Simon joining him in an uneasy alliance.
Alongside Steve Coogan as Partridge, Colm Meaney plays Pat, Tim Key is Sidekick Simon, and impressionist Phil Cornwell appears as a rival DJ. The cast is what really makes this, however a combination of clever verbal references, sight gags, slapstick and general buffoonery from the lecherous Partidge, make up what is a thoroughly engaging and riotous 90 minutes.

Following on directly from Mid Morning Matters, Alan's transition to the big screen is a huge success. Well written and observed, all aspects of Alan's character are developed well, taking full advantage of the extended story time and bigger budget. For me, it was great to see the return of Lynn, one of the best characters of previous series, and Michael also has a funny role. Whilst I was slightly wary, I needed be. Coogan has shown that the depth of Alan's character is well worthy of a cinema drama. And Norfolk and Cromer Pier make great backdrop.
