"Alan Partridge" could have been an expansion of Coogan's original character concept into the international big time. Thankfully, it's not.

The movie clips along and pleases its fan base, and it'll amuse a lot of Partridge newbies as well.

Coogan is an old hand at the comedy of fear, envy, and bruised egotism, and the movie is packed with clever gags.

The way Alan feels on the outside is the way a lot of people feel at their most vulnerable. And so we watch him and recognize him, and then cringe and wish him luck.

After making a crackling good impression, Alan Partridge overstays its welcome to a harrowing extent.

Audience Reviews for Alan Partridge


It's absolutely hilarious. A tremendously enjoyable comedy that's loaded with energy and huge laughs. It the funniest movie of 2014. A flat-out, fall-out of your seat comedy. I couldn't help but enjoy myself i loved it. Non-stop laughs and fun from start to finish. Steve Coogan is a comic genius, he gives one of his funniest performances ever. Coogan is a riot, he has so much energy and love for what he does and gives it all in every way. A knockout comedy classic. Ron Burgundy can eat his heart out.
