Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa

Director: Declan Lowney

Starring: Colm Meaney, Felicity Montagu, Nigel Lindsay, Sean Pertwee, Steve Coogan, Tim Key

After a takeover of North Norfolk Digital, a local radio station, slimy presenter Alan Partridge (Steve Coogan) is in fear of losing his job and nominates fellow jock, Pat Farrell for the chop. At the launch of the new station an embittered Farrell returns with a rifle and ammunition and to hilarious effect holds the whole staff hostage. Partridge escapes to inform authorities and is then asked to talk the madman down. What follows is a series of mildly amusing to hilarious comedy as the hapless Partridge becomes the "face of the siege." If you want a laugh this is a good movie.
