RICKY TOMLINSON & BRIAN GLOVER
Release Date: 10th December 2001
Running Time: 93 mins.
Filmed in Manchester and Blackpool and financed in Lancashire,
Bob's Weekend filmmaker Jevon O'Neill was told by everyone that
his film was too Northern and would not even appeal to southerners
let alone foreigners.
Following awards and favourable reviews at film festivals around
the world and a great public response the film is now released by
guerilla films in the UK and Paramount Pictures in
the rest of the world. It is one of the few completed films that
the Hollywood major has acquired in its entire history.
