Christmas gifts come in all shapes and sizes. For James (Luke Treadaway), a struggling street musician, a very special one arrives in the form of Bob, a strong-willed stray cat who wanders into James's tiny flat. Bob enriches James's life, giving him companionship, purpose, and a large, new audience. When Animal Welfare officers threaten to take Bob, the local community rallies to help James and Bob -- sparking a journey that takes the pair to places they never imagined in this heartwarming, spirit-lifting movie for the whole family.

It's hard not to smile at a film that says it's a good thing to care for other creatures...my film critic faculties went out the wall, because yeah, I agree with that.

Bob's gift will almost certainly be embraced by a Covid-captive audience.

It's an undemanding, telly-ish film, with as many surprises as the Queen's speech. But like I say, a hot water bottle of a story.

A sweet, charming and heartwarming movie for the whole family.

Likely to please any family audience that understands how the cheeriest stories need a bit of well-fashioned gloom to really shine.

No, even I wasn't expecting A Streetcat Named Bob to spawn a sequel. And yet, A Christmas Gift From Bob (I can't believe I'm typing this either) isn't too awful a film.
