Nothing other than a 'woe is me' tale of a drug addict who happened to be offered a second chance - with a few cat puns thrown in.

A warm if formulaic film. Treadaway offers a measured and thoughtful performance opposite Bob in a role that was probably trickier than it looks. How do you act with a cat? Is it like green screen work where you give your all to an emotional vacuum?

A feel good movie that will surely touch the hearts of animal lovers everywhere.

The film is as incredible as the real-life journey that inspired it. Spottiswoode manages to balance the right amount of grit and saccharine.

Yes, the picture is too cute for its own good - who thought shooting some scenes from the cat's point of view was a good idea? - and the dialogue is not up to much, but its heart is in the right place and it doesn't shy away from tougher subject matter.

The result is a charming film that makes an admirable attempt at keeping true to its source material.

I'd have to say it's purr-fectly awful.

Veteran director Roger Spottiswoode, best known for 'Tomorrow Never Dies' and 'The 6th Day' also has experience with this kind of movie and he handles this story just right by not letting it get too sentimental or melodramatic.

Bob was a beacon of hope off-screen, and remains the same in the predictable but pleasantly palatable adaptation of his story.
February 16, 2017
Spottiswoode keeps the vibe gritty and authentic, which is in itself remarkable for a film about a young man and a cat. Tough and tender, and a massive, welcome February surprise.
February 11, 2017
Veteran British director Roger Spottiswoode (Turner & Hooch; Mesmer) doesn't push the cute factor beyond endurance and punches through some points about some of the harsher realities of poverty in modern Britain.
February 10, 2017
Veteran director Roger Spottiswoode makes the most of this appealing yarn and has fun showing us a Bob's-eye view of the streets of London.
February 10, 2017
The filmmakers do a good job of capturing the precarious reality of life on the streets within the parameters of a PG rating.
February 8, 2017
This is one of those unfailingly nice, middle-of-the-road movies that always has its heart in the right place, even if its head is sometimes elsewhere.
February 5, 2017
you can't squawk at a film which keeps Bob the Cat in close ups long enough to make you feel he's a friend.... not just a star
February 4, 2017
A heartwarming drama which manages to land on its feet.
January 19, 2017
This dramatization... plays like a Hallmark Hall of Fame TV movie, touching lightly on serious social issues before turning into a Cinderella story.
January 12, 2017
While the humans in "A Street Cat Named Bob" do a fine job in their roles, the star of the film is....(drum roll) Bob.
January 1, 2017
Depending on your feeling towards felines, this is the sort of film that you'll either find dangerously mawkish or utterly charming.
November 30, 2016
There's a telly-ish feel to much of A Street Cat Named Bob, an attempt to sanitise life on the streets... But it's impossible to watch a film about a happy-ending story like James and Bob's without a warm glow.
