The Best Film Ever Made Ever (by mrwag-757-964031)
Now let me get this straight. I'm not Alan Partridge. I didn't decide one Monday afternoon, while eating a double decker, to come on to IMDb and give a review. That would be illegal. Neither am I plugging double deckers. They're really nice though, and I reckon Jesus would probably eat them. I digress. Alpha Papa is amazing. Alan Partridge will surely get the Oscar nod for best actor. If you thought Brokeback Mountain was stunning I didn't then you'll bend over backwards to watch this. Alan doesn't play a gay cowboy, but rather a non-gay radio show presenter who ends <more>
up in a siege sorry about the spoiler . And he doesn't die at the end either like Bruce Willis in Sixth Sense, or the dog in Bob Marley and Me. No, he lives after enduring what can only be described as an epic battle of man versus another slightly crazy man, who looks a bit like that bloke off Star Trek with the fake Irish accent. Anyway...don't waste your time watching Monsters University or the slightly camp Wolverine who has knives and forks for hands. Watch a real man in action giving the performance of his life.
Superb... was worried about TV > Cinema Transition... No Need (by pugheaven)
Have to say, this is the funniest film I've seen in a fair few years now. I'm a massive Partridge fan but these cinema outings for TV characters can fall on their face... this didn't...I dragged the wife along who's NOT a fan and even she had tears in her eyes laughing her head off... whole screening was packed and everyone loving it. If you DON'T like Partridge, you won't like this... simple as that... however if you do, be ready for a fantastic film.Fair play to Coogen and the writers... to keep the character fresh after 20+ years... and then base a whole film at a <more>
radio station for 90+ minutes and entertain, that takes some writings. Go watch... you will not be disappointed and it's Partridge at his BEST!
I thought that this wasn't going to be as funny as the TV series as film adaptations never are.To be frank i'm not named Frank BTW - it was hilarious. Cinema was packed at the 21:30 showing full of men with a few women that had been dragged along - i bet they actually loved it really and everyone was laughing out loud and tittering every couple of minutes.The plot worked - initially i thought it wouldn't be able to maintain itself for the films length but it was like an awesomely long episode of Alan. Alan's character actually has enough weight for several films and more <more>
interesting formats i think. Alan Partridge the Musical - i would go and see - and i hate musicals.True brilliance and genius from those who know Alan's mind inside out. Long live King Alan. The quality shines through - far better than Gervais et al.
Every die hard Partridge fan will love Alpha Papa. Although as usual the adverts/trailers did show a lot of the funny moments so as they were coming on screen you find yourself thinking & leading in to it.Partridge has always been brilliant with the one liners and to show so many of them during the trailers was pretty bad form.Saying that though, it was still great. Great to see Lynn & Micheal again, although there was not much of Micheal in the movie his scenes were still pretty funny.I went to see it on its first day out in Ireland and so far there's no reviews of the title on <more>
IMDb, so im wondering where the low score has come from.It currently stands at 7.2..... and the visual diarrhea of "This is the End" stands at 7.8... So clearly there is something wrong with the system if any Alan Partridge product rates lower than something written By Seth rogen.But then again.... that will always be the problem with Alan. It is and he is too intelligent for the masses.Steve Coogan and Colm Meany played their roles very well, and all in all it was a delight to watch.Text-book! Back of the net.
I went to see this with some friends on the day it came out. As a Partridge fan you will not be disappointed. The film contains all the best characters from the TV Series and Steve Coogan's brilliance as Alan just made the film so funny. There are constant one liners, looks, expressions, silly voices almost every minute. Everyone in the cinema was laughing out loud throughout the full 90 minutes.There is also a great sound track and lots of familiar tunes and the scene during the credits will have you laughing throughout.Excellent film go and see it even if you are not a Alan <more>
Partridge/Steve Coogan fan because it is a generally funny film.
As an AP fan, I, like so many others, was prepared to be disappointed with this. Although it doesn't match the truly classic AP episodes, it is nevertheless, a very funny movie. I actually cried laughing at a number of scenes and quotes. I agree that there isn't enough of Michael, and that the plot is non existent, but the rate at which the lines come at you more than make up for that.Quotes on merging religions, Neil Diamond, turkey head caught between the legs, descriptions of his past marriage, will live long in the memory.If you're a fan of AP, you will enjoy this very much.
Big fan, ready to be let down. (by jmclarke69)
Im a big Partridge fan, but i went into this ready to be disappointed. So i got up early, went to an 11:30 showing in a town an hours travel away and sat in a cinema that was basically empty.I did not stop laughing once. I was literally tittering every time Alan so much as breathed through his nose . The plot was a little underwhelming, the antagonist wasn't very antagonising, and really, the only funny character was Alan. In the series, i always thought the supporting cast were quite funny, especially Michael, but in this adaption, Alan was the only one getting laughs.But, this film is <more>
definitely a solid 8 for me. I'd watch this along with the rest of the series.Title is still rubbish though.
Hilarious! Now I Need to Find the TV Programs. (by brando647)
I was late to the Steve Coogan bandwagon. I first saw him in Jim Jarmusch's COFFEE AND CIGARETTES and wondered who exactly this dude was that thought he could be so dismissive to Doctor Octopus because, as a fanboy, that's all I see when I see Alfred Molina now . I became a fan after watching 24 HOUR PARTY PEOPLE and later seeing him in minor roles in movies like TROPIC THUNDER and THE OTHER GUYS. I remember thinking how funny the dude was and wondering why he didn't seem to get much work. I can't describe how foolish I felt when I discovered that Coogan, in fact, had an <more>
illustrious career back home in England and was actually a beloved comedian. It wasn't until I started seeing reviews for ALAN PARTRIDGE that I learned that he'd had a long-running character that had continued for years over multiple shows. Well, I haven't yet had a chance to watch any of the series but the thought of a Coogan-led feature was enough to bring me in for this one. The movie opens with the titular character as a somewhat popular radio host of Mid-Morning Matters in Norfolk, England. When a media conglomerate takes over the station with intentions of rebranding for a younger audience, Alan is quick to throw co-worker Pat Farrell Colm Meaney , host of the late night show with a primarily elderly audience, under the bus. Pat doesn't take his firing well and arrives at the station launch party with a shotgun, taking the employees hostage. Alan is recruited by the police to act as liaison with Pat during the siege, and Alan sees an opportunity to give his career an ample kick in the butt.Having seen none of the other Alan Partridge programs, I have to say I really enjoyed the movie. I've got a taste for British humor and ALAN PARTRIDGE played like an extended sitcom episode with a decent budget. Being a fan of Coogan, it's no surprise it gelled with me. It seems a lot of Coogan's performances have been influenced in some way by his success with the Partridge character. The man seems to have mastered awkwardness and turned it into an art form. Partridge is probably his most bumbling character, with the added bonus of narcissism to the point where he has absolutely no clue how big a doofus he is. It's absolutely delightful to watch as Partridge struts around with the utmost misplaced confidence. But people love him, including his former co-worker/current hostage-taker, Pat Farrell. Farrell I couldn't tell you if the character is crossing over from any of the shows is played by Colm Meaney, a character actor of whom I can't get enough. The former Star Trek cast member had shown his comedic chops in GET HIM TO THE Greek and he's an excellent addition here. He can pull off the goofball moments as well as the bits of sincerity when Pat laments the loss of his job or reflects on his wife. ALAN PARTRIDGE is Coogan and Meaney's show and they're both in hilarious form, but the world is populated with plenty of supporting characters to add to the chaos including Alan's house maid and apparently surrogate mother of sorts Lynn and Alan's co- host Side Kick Simon, who spends the majority of the movie with a shotgun funnel duct-taped to his head.I can't think of much to say about this movie other than to give my recommendation and reinforce how much fun I found it to be. You don't necessarily need to be a fan of the series to enjoy it, as I went in blind and got along just fine. It's got a wry, subtle humor and some of the zingers come fast enough that people that have trouble with accents might miss some of the funniest bits i.e. pretty much anytime Alan's on air . I wouldn't think it'd be too much of an issue for American audiences; when I last watched it, I was joined by my sister who's TV interests are Kardashian- related, if that gives you any idea and, despite my belief that this movie would be totally out of her wheelhouse, she seemed to enjoy it just fine. It's got moments of slapstick without being too in your face and a lot of the laughs come from the sharp dialogue. It's my sort of comedy and an easy recommendation for others who might be interested.
Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa is a movie not to take too seriously. I can tell you right now that this film is hilarious, Its funny, lovable and always worth another watch because its fun! and thats what i like in a movie, nothing too serious and yet not too stupid. This Film is perfect in my eyes and everyone should definitely give it a watch, even if you aren't a hardcore Partridge fan, the jokes will always make you chuckle and surely thats what you want in a movie? In conclusion this movie is British comedy at its best and is brilliant to sit back and watch whatever mood you are in! And <more>
