Look, the world doesn’t need a Grumpy Cat movie. Grumpy Cat was fun for like a week in 2012. Besides, basically all cats are grumpy, that’s why they’re so great. Anyway, regardless of what I think, a Grumpy Cat Lifetime Christmas movie is happening. Yeah, I know.
But alright, fine, if a Grumpy Cat movie has to happen, at least they made the best possible casting choice for the titular, unhappy cat: Aubrey Plaza. Plaza’s loveable grump character April on Parks & Recreation is absolutely perfect, so there’s no doubt she’ll be great as the world’s grumpiest meme.
The movie, titled Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever, follows Grumpy Cat (named Tardar Sauce for some reason) a lonely cat who lives in a pet store at a mall. Tardar Sauce’s life changes when she becomes friends with a 12 year old girl named Chrystal, the only person who can hear her talk. Then they go on an adventure! And discover the true meaning of Christmas! It’s a Lifetime movie!
Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever does not have a airdate yet but I’m sure it will air around Christmastime. Keep an eye on the Lifetime channel on your TV for more Grumpy Cat than you’ll know what to do with.[via /Film]
