"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+.

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 Farrell is also a DJ and informs Alan of the takeover and the risk of losing jobs internally. Alan is then called in for a meeting and tries to stick up for Pat (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 'em" is shot right back at him with lightning speed from Alan.

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.

The second funniest thing about this movie is reading the one star reviews about it. Apparently a prerequisite for hating it is to lack even a mild grasp of grammar and/or spelling.

If you have liked Alan Partridge shows and you don't need your jokes sledgehammered into your face to be funny, this is an outstanding comedy.

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.

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.

I wanted to find this a hilarious comedy. Perhaps if the Partridge character did not so accurately portray a sociopath it could have been. Unfortunately for me, the lead was so convincing as someone totally self-absorbed that the parallels to today's "leaders" was unmistakeable and took the humor right out of the script.
Oh sure, there were at least two good laughs along the way. It's just tough to see a movie depicting the narcissism that exists behind many microphones and in front of many TV cameras these days.
Then again, maybe the the film's larger role is showing a slice of life where society looks to a sociopath for solutions. It is great comedy unless it's reality. With Alan Partridge, that line became too blurred for laughter in my case.

A familiar face in Britain but a virtual unknown in the States, comedian Steve Coogan has made his name in his home country portraying a fictional radio talk show host by the name of Alan Partridge. Since 1991, Coogan has performed his act on both radio and TV, and now he's branched out to his first feature-length movie entitled "Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa" (just "Alan Partridge" in the United States).

In the film, the station where Partridge works is facing serious cutbacks due to a corporate takeover, changing audience tastes, a drop in listenership and bailing advertisers. Though Partridge himself survives the ax, the same cannot be said for his fellow broadcaster, Pat Farrell ("Hell on Wheels' Colm Meaney), who, upon learning of his dismissal, completely flips out, holding his co-workers hostage at gunpoint while the goofy and inept Partridge is sent in by the authorities to help negotiate a peaceful resolution to the crisis.

Maybe with our history of gun violence, we're a trifle more sensitive to this sort of thing here in America than they are in Britain, which may explain why some of the laughs tend to catch in our throats at times, particularly when Farrell is threatening to take out a bunch of his own innocent and understandably distraught colleagues as retaliation for the wrong that's been done to him. That being said, the stylish mix of satire, slapstick, black humor and social commentary that Coogan and his various co-writers have come up keeps us chortling through most of the movie.

Coogan makes Partridge a likable everyman character, bemused and skeptical without being hard-edged and cynical. The supporting cast is engaging as well.

Offbeat and funny.
