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

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

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

The creaky premise of the plot is behind the times by decades, not years.

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

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.

Steve Coogan, Colm Meaney and the rest of the cast are very good. The plot has enough interesting twists in it to keep the hostage situation from getting stale.

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

It's Coogan's brassy performance that makes this English comedy rock.
