Watch a street cat named bob 2016 online free. Based on the international best selling book. The true feel good story of how James Bowen, a busker and recovering drug addict, had his life transformed when he met a stray ginger cat.
The film about British street musician James Bowen’s autobiographical book, a less-fluffy-than-it-sounds tale about how a stray orange tom cat saved his life, is translated into companion-animal drama A Street Cat Named Bob, a film that admirably tries to remain true to the slightly gritty spirit of its source material. Unfortunately, it also occasionally sprays the wall with maudlin touches and misjudged additions to the story.
Clearly his years spent directing the likes of Tomorrow Never Dies and And the Band Played On were less relevant than the fact that he has dog comedy Turner & Hooch on his résumé. A genuine affection for animals shines throughout, and it’s hard not to admire the way the production has bravely opted for the path of most resistance by wrangling real cats instead of using expensive visual effects to create digital kitties. Consequently, the seven assorted feline actors playing Bob (including the real Bob) don’t always look all that happy to be working for crunchies and strokes. Given the book was such a substantial international best-seller, Sony Pictures Releasing and other distributors should be able to bank on finding an audience for this. But viewers will need to be both cat lovers and up for enduring the less photogenic sight of someone going through severe methadone withdrawal, which could make this a tricky challenge for marketing departments.
