Trivia They cast multiple cats to play Bob but in the end, Bob played himself for most of the film. See more »
Goofs James & Bob catch the 38 bus (a real bus route) from his new flat somewhere in Islington, which is in north London, to get to Covent Garden in central London. This is a journey of approximately 2.5 miles in a southerly direction on this route (presumably James gets off around Cambridge Circus and walks the few hundred yards to Covent Garden). The final destination on the front of the bus should therefore read 'Victoria Station' if its is heading south but in the film the front of the bus says the 38 bus terminates at 'Angel Islington' which indicates that the bus is travelling northwards and therefore in completely the wrong direction.

Crazy Credits On the UK release, the British Board Of Film Censors card preceding the feature reads 'A Streetcar Named Desire' briefly, before being replaced by the appropriate card for the film. This may have been a glitch peculiar to the cinema. See more »
