Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa Blu-ray Review
21 January 2014
Summary: Declan Lowney's "Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa" (2013) arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of StudioCanal. The supplemental features on the disc include an audio commentary with actor Steve Coogan and writers Neil Gibbons and Rob Gibbons; gallery of bloopers; twenty one deleted and extended scenes; and standard featurette with raw footage from the shooting of the film and cast and crew comments. In English, with optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.
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.
