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.

Format:Blu-ray
"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+.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coogan is so good April 10, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Steve Coogan Stars as Quirky Radio Personality June 30, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
“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.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious nonsense June 11, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
If you enjoy a pile of nonsense mixed with a load of stupid yet oddly smart humor, this is the movie for you.
If you get annoyed at British humor, and are looking for a British police drama, look elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very very funny July 2, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Very funny, first-rate British comedy. Very verbal humor that you have to pay attention to. As a fan of Steve Coogan and Colm Meaney, I wasn't disappointed.

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!

The Coogs delivers --so refreshing to see Partridge w/o the annoying laugh track common with BBC and US comedies circa 1990s. I've never been able to make it through the original series but I'm a huge Coogan Fan. Great lines, silly but good silly plot. Holds up to multiple viewings. His radio sound off lines are great I won't ruin but hint Cocaine and Fleetwood Mac and Neil Diamond and the Son of God.
