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?

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good 10 Sep 2014
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wel worth seeing 26 July 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's a cliche to talk about the difficulty many British TV comedy series have in making it to the big screen and so I was a little nervous about the prospect of Alan being in a feature film. While the final product isn't quite as magical as the TV series or even the one-offs, it's sti a very funny and famiiar experience for FOPs. Plenty of od characters turning up and it stays within Alan's word very well. If you're a fan you' have seen it already, so first time viewers should jump in and discover Coogan's ater-ego.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great entertainment 9 April 2014
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.

oh my.................after reading how great this film was i can only conclude that the reviewers were all very young people.i think coogan is a funny guy.i have the box sets of his tv shows but this must rank as one of the most unfunny adaption to the big screen.i never laughed once.he just went down in my estimation.dont waste your money.very limp in comparison to the tv show

5.0 out of 5 stars Alpha Papa - ruddy good! 14 Sep 2014
Hilarious big screen outing for Norfolk's best broadcaster.

Saw this first at the cinema and laughed throughout, so am pleased to say that the second viewing held up on DVD.

As usual, the best bits of Alan are in the subtleties, and the DVD extras shows the painstaking way they went off script to create a very funny film. As a big Alan fan from KMKY to MMM, more well written, well delivered funny stuff.

Phew, what a relief! More fun driving a Lexus, back of the net!

Pretty much what you expect from 90 minutes or so of Alan Partridge... Lynn has a Hollywood hairdo, Alan has a few heroic flights of fancy and one or two moments of extreme awkwardness. Fast paced enough that you don't get bored, but well in keeping with Norwich's favourite DJ and his antics. For martial arts geeks, look out for the firearms officer's takedown when Alan wants to touch his gun... Impressively done.

If you still like this formula for taking the P out of aspects of our character and shallow modern life then you'll still love this - it's as good an application of the formula as anything previously. If you find yourself not liking it then probably your preferences/life/whatever have just changed - suppose mine will eventually! Until then another 90 mins enjoyment for me and probably for you :-)

Saw this at the cinema. Really funny! Best comedy I've seen in ages (though I don't usually watch comedy). I could watch it over and over again when I need cheering up.

Despite quite a thin plot Steve Coogan cements his best known character into the comedy hall of fame with some laugh out loud moments. The opening credits are a masterpiece
