Editorial Reviews

Steve Coogan reprises his most popular role as the iconic Alan Partridge, the famous local radio DJ and one time talk show host. Alan finds himself at the center of a siege when a disgruntled fellow DJ (Colm Meaney) decides to hold their station hostage after learning that he's getting fired by the new management.

LOL I have to watch it again just to catch all the gags....he's so funny and quick with his wise cracks that you can easily miss some jokes.

"I'm trying to save your head, shoulders, knees and toes." Alan Partridge (Coogan) is a famous DJ who works for a station that has just been bought out. When rumors about firings begin to swirl his friend and co-worker Pat Farrell (Meaney) thinks he is on the list so he does the only reasonable thing, he takes the station hostage. It is up to his friend Alan to defuse the situation, but things don't go as planned. I have never seen him do this character before so I was sure what to expect from this. Almost immediately I was laughing and that continued throughout the movie. There is quite a bit of British humor in this but it is more main stream American then say a Monty Python or Shaun Of The Dead is. Coogan is great in this and I wouldn't hate if they made more movies with this character. The easiest way to describe this is like a British Anchorman with the constant over the top antics and the make-it- up-as-you-go feel. This isn't a movie for everyone but I really thought it was funny and I recommend this. Overall, very funny movie, I really liked it a lot, but again it's not a comedy for everyone. I give this a B+.

I mean, really. This man knows how to make a funny, entertaining movie and never seems like he is milking Alan Partridge to death. Also, excellent use of Colm Meaney, who brilliantly handles walking the line between menacing and hilarious. Awesome.

Who is Alan partridge (Steve Coogan)? He is the DJ of 'Midmorning Matters' in Norfolk England - "Music and Chat for the Norfolk Generation", and he is also finding out that the station has been taken over by another company and changing their name to "Shape" from "Norfolk Digital". Pat is also a DJ and informs Alan of the take over and the risk of losing jobs internally. Alan is then called in for a meeting and tries to stick up for Pat Farrell (Colm Meaney), the DJ of 'Fireside Phone In'. He appears to ad-lib the whole way, finding out one job will have to go - either Pat's or his. He dons the turncoat while becoming paranoid in the meeting and begins describing Pat as an Irishman who swears too much, speaks much too much to unions, among other negative accusations to drop the hot coals on his head instead of Alan's.

Pat gets sacked because of Alan, but does not know that Alan played any part in it and, in turn, goes totally berserk. He takes the whole broadcasting station hostage, along with all of the upper crust and white collars who fired him. The whole station is under siege by Pat who goes in and out of his right mind. Partridge wings it all the way with a makes-it-up as you go type of dialogue while Pat is the perfect collision of a complete mess and a brilliant sad man at the same time. He genuinely misses his wife Molly, who passed away and says that "the angels took her". "There must have been a lot of them" is shot right back at him with lightening speed.

I watched this film two times to get all of the fast-talk, quipping, and each detail of this farcical comedy that for many will be a side-splitter. Alan becomes the brainless, fast talking, dry witted, hilarious, go-between with the police and Pat, during the police storming the building.

Funny and a little mean! The one liners are dry and hilarious. The sight gags are really funny as well.

“Alan Partridge” is based on a British television character played by Steve Coogan (“Philomena”). Coogan recreates the role in this feature film. Alan is a 55-year-old DJ whose small Norwich radio station has just been taken over by a conglomerate. The new owners have brought in some young talent to do the morning show.

Senior radio personalities Alan and his friend Pat (Colm Meaney) begin to feel their own jobs are shaky. Comic madness escalates when the station comes under siege and its employees are held hostage. There are elements here of Paddy Chayefsky’s “Network,” “The Colbert Report,” “Saturday Night Live” sketch comedy, with a sprinkling of “Dog Day Afternoon” for dramatic measure. Since Coogan has played the role for 20 years, he completely inhabits Alan and is extremely funny in both his quieter and manic moments.

Special features on the Blu-ray release include a making-of featurette and profile of Alan Partridge.

I've just watched this on Netflix and thought it was hilarious! The first hour is funny but the last 30 minutes, when they leave the radio station and end up on the pier, is just too funny! I laughed so much I had Kenco coming out of my nose! Dan! Dan! Dan!......Dan! LOL

I have to watch it again just to catch all the gags....he's so funny and quick with his wise cracks that you can easily miss some jokes. I would have liked to have seen a little more of Michael in the movie, he's a great character. Lynn is back too....I love the new hair do !!! ;o)

This is funny stuff and worth watching. Trust me, the gags are funny and the last scenes on the pier are well worth the wait. Steve Coogan is a comic genius!

Smart, quick, hilarious, over-the-top. An absurd premise becomes somewhat believable and Coogan and Meany are fantastic. I only wish I was a Brit so I could've understood another whole level of the jokes (what's a Geordie again?!?!?), but even without that level this is one of the most tightly written comedies I've seen in a while.
