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

Trivia

Lynn drives an old 1985 Austin Metro. In the second episode of I'm Alan Partridge (1997) she unsuccessfully tries to persuade Alan to trade in his Rover 800 for a much smaller and cheaper Rover Metro. Alan scornfully says he will not drive a "MiniMetro", which was the model's original name for the first two years of its production (eventually it was sold as the Rover Metro after the Austin brand became defunct). The model Lynn drives is from after the 'MiniMetro' became just 'Metro' but it's the same design. See more »

Coogan struggling to recreate the 1997 series of I'm Alan Partridge

The First series of I'm Alan Partridge was IMO the greatest comedy series ever seen, Series two less funny and the recent effort on SKY less so still. Now the to the film. wont go other the plot as others have done suffice to say that Coogan himself said he overacted in the second series of the TV show but sadly for him hasn't stopped him overacting again in this film. Which takes the shine off the film somewhat. Some very funny lines but like the sitcoms of the 70s made into films tends to lose its way as the film unfolds. I certainly didn't think it was anywhere near as funny as certain reviewers on here and i suggest now is the time to kill Alan off.
