    Teaser is out now.

    Film is out August 7th.

    Cautiously optimistic about this.

    Loved when somebody asked him what his favourite Beatles album was, he replies 'mmmm I would have to say 'the best of the Beatles' :D
    Hope they use that line in the film.

    Perhaps this could be one of the only TV shows to make the leap to a full feature that actually works. I would count the Inbetweeners movie as being one of the only others too.

    The first X-Files movie was good.

    Haven't seen the second one though, supposed to be muck.

    if the critics pan it, Partridge better have a sit down interview with Ryan Tubridy where he swiftly asks him to "smell my cheese"

    before calling him a mentalist and driving to Connemara in his bare feet gorging on toblerone :D

    Jurassic Park! Hopefully it'll deal with his crippling Toblerone addiction

    As much as I look forward to this I also have my doubts. Knowing me Knowing you, excellent, I'm Alan Partridge, genius, Mid Morning Matters, quite good, Welcome to the Places of My Life, flashes of brilliance but not so good, that interview about books, not good. So I hope that this film doesn't fall into the trap of self satisfied comedy which is the impression I got from the trailer. The riffing on what the film should be called, meh, sort of funny but not laugh out loud hilarious funny. I hope therefore that it doesn't fall into the BBC warm fuzzy comfort zone variety of comedy or follows the current trend in British comedy towards the unfunny. That said I'm in a minority of one here, because I don't like any recent British comedy, the IT Crowd, The Inbetweeners, The Mighty Boosh, all leave me cold. But Alan Partridge at its best is amazing, I just think that once you reach a certain level of success the drive to produce something truly great goes. If the film is good to very good it will be a success imo, more Partridge is appreciated.

    Why haven't you listened to the audiobook of his autobiography? It's possibly the best thing in the Partridge cannon. The book is excellent on its own but Coogan's delivery of the lines adds so much.
    "Thankfully for me, Clifton has been unable to stem the bleeding from his knee. Even if I temporarily lose sight of him, I can always tell which direction he's headed because he leaves a trail of blood. He's like a large menstruating snail.. with a drink problem."

    Judging by the credits on imdb, the film is in good hands.

    Peter Baynham and Armando Iannucci are on the writing team, Declan Lowney in the directors chair.

    Farmer - This is exactly the sort of rubbish you came up with the other day when you talked about putting a spine in a bap.
    Alan - I admit that was a mistake. I shouldn’t have said bap.
    Farmer - Well, good. Well, that’s a start.
    Alan - Well, no, I should have said baguette. Because a spinal column would fit in a baguette.

    Alan: Excuse me but there seems to be a chap over there wearing Jeans, chap of about 4?

    Waiter swiftly asks boy and his mother to leave

    Alan: Got you on the old jeans rule eh? Nazi's. But with excellent facilities. As did the Nazi's.
