Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa (2013)

Director: Declan Lowney
Writers:  Peter Baynham, Steve Coogan, Neil Gibbons, Rob Gibbons, Armando Ianucci
Cast:       Steve Coogan, Colm Meaney, Anna Maxwell Martin, Felicity Montagu

Alan Partridge is forced to be the negotiator when a sacked DJ with a shotgun takes over the radio station. The opportunity gives him some media attention which he is lapping up.

Unlike the TV series the film is kind of plot driven but the character remains true to his nature. Kind of missed the domestic Alan from the TV series and also  some of the characters from the TV series. Both Lyn and Micheal have minor roles. Like the TV series, I think it will get funnier on repeat viewings. That said it was a very good watch. Love the opening credits. 

See it you shit!!!

Rating: 3.5/5
