EXCRUCIATINGLY UNFUNNY

 

 

 

 

Steve Coogan joins a cast of thousands who have brought much-loved British TV comedy to the big screen and failed miserably: On The Buses - Dads Army - The Likely Lads - Steptoe & Son - Porridge - awful muck, to name just a few....and the list goes unmercifully on and on.

'Alpha Papa' is a bland comedy made for the 21st Century, but steeped in the usual bland collection of faux pas, double entendres, mirth and titillation that once bore down us through the telly and eventually onto the big screen in the 20th. The film creaks and groans as it meanders down the memory lane of the 'Carry On' films and all that sailed before and after at Pinewood. 

Here is Hattie Jacques as the Acting Deputy Police Commissioner; Bernard Breslaw as the tough detective; Sid James as the tough Swattie; Kenneth Williams as Alan Partridge, our unlikely hero:
"INFAMY, INFAMY - THEY'VE ALL GOT IT IN FER ME"

What utter rubbish!
