After decades of radio and TV appearances, Steve Coogan (Philomena) finally brings  his talk-show-host character Alan Partridge to the  big screen. In terms of the sheer number and variety  of successful jokes, it is one of the funniest films  in years. Partridge’s life as a small-time radio host  in Norwich requires little back story, as does his character — rich with an inflated sense of self that is swiftly shown to be tempered by insecurity about being too old to be hip. The film finds a radio station taken hostage by a gunman, and only Partridge can save the day — and, along the way, his brand. Rated R. 90 minutes. Jean Cocteau Cinema, Santa Fe. See story.
