Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa (2013)
21 January 2014
Conclusion: Brilliantly scripted and acted, Declan Lowney's Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa is one of the funniest films I have seen in quite some time. Even if you are completely unfamiliar with Alan Partridge and his style, I urge you to find a way to see this film. I guarantee you will have a terrific time with it. StudioCanal's technical presentation of Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa is outstanding. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Did you find this review helpful?
Excerpt: As a dedicated fan, I am delighted and relieved to report that Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa is miles ahead of the summer�s competition in terms of laughs. In a season of apocalyptic comedies, it�s oddly reassuring that there�s actually more humour in 89 minutes of silliness set almost entirely in a Norwich radio station.
Summary: If you don’t think there’s a risk in promoting comedic characters from the television to the cinema screen, then here are three (I think) words to change your mind: Ali G Indahouse . Thankfully Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa (directed by Father Ted ’s Declan Lowney) neither has a lead character who has outstayed his welcome, nor is forced to spread itself too thin in order to appeal to a broad cinema audience.
