"Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever" review by Suzanne 11/12/14
Premieres November 29 8/7 on Lifetime

I like Christmas movies, and I do enjoy Lifetime movies, but they can both be hit-or-miss. Fortunately, this movie is a good one. It's very funny - funnier than most Lifetime movies, in fact. It's largely for kids, but it has a lot of fun, and most adults should enjoy it, too. I didn't expect too much when I watched it, but I was pleasantly surprised. It not only does take itself too seriously, it makes fun of itself, and the audience, and Lifetime!

If you've ever been on Facebook, you know the Grumpy Cat meme. They have her starring in this movie, and Aubrey Plaza is the voice behind the cat. She does a great job with it, too. Grumpy Cat narrates the movie and also provides lots of running commentary. In the story, Grump Cat lives in a pet store in the mall, and a teen girl who makes a Christmas wish suddenly can understand Grumpy Cat and talk to him. Some dumb crooks try to steal a very valuable dog from the pet store, and the teen girl and Grump Cat battle against them. At this point, the movie has a sort of "Home Alone" feel to it.

It's a fun Christmas movie, and the whole family should enjoy it. It might sound silly that an internet meme has its own movie, but this one definitely works. Check it out!

AUBREY PLAZA TO VOICE GRUMPY CAT, EVERYONE’S FAVORITE CURMUDGEON AND INTERNET SENSATION,
IN THE LIFETIME® ORIGINAL MOVIE
GRUMPY CAT’S WORST CHRISTMAS EVER
PREMIERING NOVEMBER 29

Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation) will lend her voice to Grumpy Cat in the Lifetime Original Movie Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever. The infamous kitty with the hilariously woeful but endearing facial expression stars in her very own live-action Christmas movie this holiday season, premiering Saturday, November 29, at 8pm ET/PT on Lifetime.

In Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever, Grumpy Cat is a lonely feline living in a mall pet shop. Because she never gets chosen by customers, she develops a sour outlook on life…until one day during the holidays, a very special 12-year-old girl named Chyrstal enters the pet store and falls in love with her after realizing she is the only person who can hear this unique cat talk. As the two develop a close friendship during the holiday rush, Grumpy reluctantly thwarts the kidnapping of an exotic dog she dislikes and, on Christmas Eve, rescues Chyrstal after the mall closes. Through her adventures, will Grumpy learn the true meaning of Christmas? Or will it be, in her words, the “Worst. Christmas. Ever?”

In the last year and a half, Grumpy Cat (@RealGrumpyCat), whose real name is Tardar Sauce, has arguably become the most famous cat of all time. With nearly 6 million Facebook friends, the adorable Internet celebrity was named the most influential cat by MSNBC, most important cat by Mashable and Buzzfeed, and has appeared in news and television shows around the world. She is the author of A Grumpy Book (Chronicle Books), currently in print in 14 languages and just released her second book, The Grumpy Guide to Life: Observations by Grumpy Cat. Grumpy Cat has numerous merchandising deals and is Friskies official “spokescat.”

Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever is executive produced by Lifetime’s Arturo Interian, with Ben Lashes serving as co-executive producer. Tim Hill (Alvin and the Chipmunks, Garfield 2), who wrote the teleplay with Jeff Morris (The Yank, The True Memoirs of an International Assassin), also directs the movie. A+E Networks handles international sales for Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever.
