Review: 7 out of 10 stars.
Decent small comedy of a mischievous DJ who simply tried to save his own job but did a bit too much to make sure so was cruelly funny. His survival skills caused him to make sure his buddy was fired and the buddy went postal.
It’s a movie making Coogan look like a real jerk, that he was in every way putting himself as the most selfish person, yet appeared to be charming.
The movie used a lot of emotional tact and crude humor with references to books and records. The plot itself is a bit lackluster and more about character development.
No after the credits but throughout the credits, you can hear Partridge’s voice as a DJ complaining about the song and then the song will change.

Coogan’s way of prolonging the hostage (seige) situation was the key to make it a 90 minute flick.
