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
Im a big Partridge fan, but i went into this ready to be disappointed. So i got up early, went to an 11:30 showing in a town an hours travel away and sat in a cinema that was basically empty.
I did not stop laughing once. I was literally tittering every time Alan so much as breathed (through his nose). The plot was a little underwhelming, the antagonist wasn't very antagonising, and really, the only funny character was Alan. In the series, i always thought the supporting cast were quite funny, especially Michael, but in this adaption, Alan was the only one getting laughs.
But, this film is definitely a solid 8 for me. I'd watch this along with the rest of the series.
Title is still rubbish though.
