After his colorful career as a sports reporter, talk show host and finally reality TV personality Alan Partridge goes back to his roots: at a local radio station in quiet Norfolk. It’s just too bad that the station changes owners and Alan’s best buddy Pat is getting fired. Even worse that Pat goes mental and stages a hostage crisis in the station. And worst of all Alan Partridge himself, this magnet of mishaps, this spineless man who puts his foot in his mouth every time he opens it, is being sent in as an negotiator, while the show, of course, must go on. After several TV series and a couple of TV specials it’s finally here: The long-awaited Alan Partridge feature film, that’s been 10 years in the making. Steve Coogan once again embodies the character, that made him famous, with perfect timing and complete commitment, while the absurd characters and situations around him give him more than ample opportunities to make a perfect fool of hisself – and to blast some of his signature 80s power ballads into the air waves.
