Storyline

Radio DJ Alan Partridge is facing uncertain times with his radio station being taken over by a corporate conglomerate. He makes things worse when he talks down a colleague after a promise to talk him up. The colleague handles things badly and takes the radio station into his own hands, literally, by taking them all hostage. Envisioning all his action heroes in his head, Alan is going to save the day by becoming a go-between for the Scotland Yard. His method though will put himself and others in harm's way because Alan Partridge just can't keep his mouth shut. Written by Anne Campbell

10 out of 10
9 August 2013 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

I thought that this wasn't going to be as funny as the TV series as film adaptations never are.

To be frank (i'm not named Frank BTW) - it was hilarious. Cinema was packed at the 21:30 showing (full of men with a few women that had been dragged along - i bet they actually loved it really) and everyone was laughing out loud and tittering every couple of minutes.

The plot worked - initially i thought it wouldn't be able to maintain itself for the films length but it was like an awesomely long episode of Alan. Alan's character actually has enough weight for several films and more interesting formats i think. Alan Partridge the Musical - i would go and see - and i hate musicals.

True brilliance and genius from those who know Alan's mind inside out.

Long live King Alan. The quality shines through - far better than Gervais et al.
