Alan Partridge is an inept, self-aggrandizing DJ in a small-town radio station, and a new company buys out the station…shenanigans!!
Steve Coogan is an Otter Family Favorite Actor, and one day when I was looking around for a movie to take to the Red Cross while I did apheresis, Mr. Otter handed this to me. Perfect, I said, and took it.
And it was good for a long period spent unmoving with needles in both my arms, I have to say. Funny, easy to follow, not complicated but interesting enough to keep my attention. Coogan was great as the smarmy self-involved idiot, and Colm Meaney (who I will always think of as the asshole guy from Con Air) was also in it, and was very good.
This is one of those movies where everything just keeps getting more and more crazy and out of hand, and it builds nicely. Worth seeing, if not funniest movie ever.
