Excerpt: I'll say first off I love Alan Partridge, so had big expectations when seeing this. The big screen Alan Partridge has been modified slightly, so to appeal to a wider audience...some of the really cringeworthy comedy has been watered down. But this is still Partridge in all his glory. The final half an hour in particular has some glorious comedy moments, I was ;laughing so hard I did have to pause on more than one occasion. Audio and Visually very good.
Summary: When I first heard that Steve Coogan was planning on taking his comedy character Alan Partridge to the big screen, I was apprehensive to say the least. I have grown up with Alan and found him always to be the funniest character on TV. With this news he was headed to the silver screen, I thought this would be it, this would be the moment Alan was lost on me. You just have to look historically at television characters who have tried it before.
Summary: Works best as a film if you are less familiar with Alan Partridge prior to mid morning matters. If you are more of a fan you may feel that some of the characters are underused - particularly Michael. Overall a good film that has some laugh out loud moments and will have you reaching for your old Alan Partridge DVDs. Maybe he'll be lucky and get a sequel!
Summary: When I first heard that Steve Coogan was planning on taking his comedy character Alan Partridge to the big screen, I was apprehensive to say the least. I have grown up with Alan and found him always to be the funniest character on TV. Thankfully, Alan Partridge remains as hilarious as ever and needless to say, Alan has the last laugh.

Summary: I saw this in the UK with friends who'd never seen the original TV series. I loved it, they didn't. For me, putting Alan in a corner and watching him squirm is hilarious. My only complaint was they needed more Michael - love that guy.
Summary: Rarely do comedies make you laugh without squirming these days! This movie has some great belly laughs created through visuals and some clever dialogue. Steve Coogan plays the Prat to perfection. Leave your brain at the cinema door and enjoy yourself.
