Mini Review - Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa

Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa (out Oct 24) left many laughing loudly at my preview screening... but as someone unfamiliar with the character (which Steve Coogan has been playing for decades), I don't know what the fuss is about. This film sees the radio DJ Alan Partridge humorously try to defuse a hostage situation at his struggling radio station. A few laughs at best. Grade: B-.
