Jingle bells all and merry Decemberween to you. Jackie brings in a Lifetime Channel original Xmas movie starring a cat who is an Internet meme. It can't be awful right? Talking animals, the magic of Xmas and a network notorious for making awful cheese family fests?

According to the FAQ on grumpycats.com, Grumpy Cat was born on April 4th 2012 in Morristown Arizona and she is actually named Tardar Sauce. I guess Grumpy Cat is just a stage name. Her appearance is due to feline dwarfism and as it turns out Tardar Sauce really isn’t grumpy at all. She enjoys all manner of cat play including and especially hiding behind the curtains. Tardar Sauce seems like a real character. She became an internet sensation and most likely the world’s most famous lolcat after a photo of her was put on reddit in September of 2012. She was accused of ingenuine grumpiness via photoshop. Her owners then posted some videos on youtube which showcase Tardar Sauce’s very real, very grumpy face. This was followed by viral fire which culminated in a website, series of books, t-shirts and this fucking movie.
Director Tim Hill is usual suspect when it comes to pumping out shit. He also directed Muppets from Space, Max Keeble’s Big Movie, Garfield a Tale of Two Kitties and the Alvin and the Chipmunks movie. He is currently remaking Short Circuit. We should remember Max Keeble from last Christmas as the movie that I was hornswoggled into picking was Home Alone 3, which had a lot of nothing to do with Christmas and more than a little to do with pissing me off for 2 weeks. Alex D. Linz was Max Keeble, and Alex Pruitt. Pruitt of course being the title character to Home Alone 3: A Tale of Too Shitty.
This is the second internet meme to make it into a movie, the first being Safety Not Guaranteed. Oddly both films feature Audrey Plaza, as Ms. Plaza voices Grumpy Cat. Yes the fucking cat talks. It should be noted that I would very much like to make the sex to Audrey Plaza.
