    It is very, very, very funny indeed. Coogan is great. The supporting cast are all on top form. The siege idea is the perfect way to transfer Alan to the big screen.

    There will be hardcore Partridge fans that will snub this because there's…

    Spending my Saturday night getting dusty-eyed over two pretentious twats talking bollocks.
