I went to see this with some friends on the day it came out. As a Partridge fan you will not be disappointed. The film contains all the best characters from the TV Series and Steve Coogan's brilliance as Alan just made the film so funny. There are constant one liners, looks, expressions, silly voices almost every minute. Everyone in the cinema was laughing out loud throughout the full 90 minutes.
There is also a great sound track and lots of familiar tunes and the scene during the credits will have you laughing throughout.
Excellent film go and see it even if you are not a Alan Partridge/Steve Coogan fan because it is a generally funny film.
