  • Brilliant heartwarming true story

    By TheGrumpyYorkshireman
    A very heartwarming true story of how Bob came into James Bowen’s life and drastically changed it for the better. Seeing this film led me to buy the book and I’ve absolutely loved both and how much they each affected each other’s lives. As already said there seem to be some slight differences in the book but these are only minor in detail, otherwise the film seems pretty faithful to the original story.

    This movie is honestly amazing, the fact it's based on a real story and how Bob the Cat is playing himself which makes it an incredible film, plus in some parts I nearly cried because of how emotional it was and I don't usually cry during films! Honestly this film is worth watching if love true stories and Cats!
