Alan Partridge

Critics Consensus

The Alan Partridge movie ditches the TV series' nuanced humor for something broader, and succeeds in presenting the character on a global scale.

Movie Info

Alan Partridge (Steve Coogan) has had many ups and downs in his life. National television broadcaster. Responsible for killing a guest on live TV. Local radio broadcaster. A nervous breakdown in Dundee. His self-published book, 'Bouncing Back', subsequently remaindered and pulped. ALAN PARTRIDGE finds Alan at the center of a siege, when a disgruntled fellow DJ (Colm Meaney) decides to hold their station hostage after learning that he's getting sacked by the new management. The character Alan Partridge first appeared over twenty years ago as a BBC sports reporter on the radio show, On The Hour. Since then, this wonderfully conceited, petty, anal, idiosyncratic comic creation has flourished across virtually every medium you can think of. He's been a sports reporter (again) on the seminal TV news spoof, The Day Today, host of his own TV chat show, Knowing Me, Knowing You, star of the fly-on-the-wall sitcom I'm Alan Partridge, and most recently Mid-Morning Matters..(C) Magnolia

Critic Reviews for Alan Partridge

All Critics (106) | Top Critics (30)

  • "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.

    Apr 24, 2014 | Rating: 3/4
  • After making a crackling good impression, Alan Partridge overstays its welcome to a harrowing extent.

    Apr 18, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • The movie feels like a succession of sketch ideas - but it's a good platform for Partridge's blend of awkward patter, narcissism and utter cravenness.
