Product Description

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?

I didn't like this at first, but I've re-watched it a couple of times and now I really like it. What you have to accept straight off is that ALL half-hour comedies which attempt to transfer to 90 min movies suffer for it, and they necessarily have to make changes to the pace and which characters are used and how. On my third watching I've begun to really appreciate all the small jokes which are really rammed in everywhere they can go, too many to recall.

One criticism is that the beginning isn't very strong. There's good bits, but overall it probably would have helped with a few stronger jokes just to get it going, because there are some really good moments later on.

Coogan shows his strong acting ability, and he can be very subtle. His stress-nose-whine makes him sound like a wounded dog when he has that bust up with Lynne, which is a nice touch. Another subtle but hilarious bit I only got on the third watching was when he was regaling someone about his recent sexual encounter and his narrative goes from giddy and immature to a little melancholic and then tragic when he seems to realise to himself that he didn't know his own mother, and then cuts himself off.

If you're a Partridge fan and watched this once and thought it was crap, I recommend having a couple of cans and watching it again and then perhaps again. I have found it rewarding to do so, and I'm sure I'll watch it at least once or twice more. It's good, and in places brilliant.

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

Good film. Clever dialogue, amusing. Not hysterical, but entertaining. recommended, but just don't expect hollywood blockbuster. This is a comedy and should be praised for keeping it real, and sticking to the man of the Radio and his ultra selfish ego. This just does the slime proud. Does he redeem himself in the end and show the world he is a good, moral, decent dude? Nah not really, but his hearts in the right place, where that is, only he knows, probably in one of his perverted fantasies.

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.

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.
