I wish I could post something about how this is an omen of the apocalypse, and this is a disgrace, but Grumpy Cat getting a Lifetime holiday movie isn’t surprising at all. I mean, behind Grumpy Cat is some owner that’s wondering why the hell his cat is so popular, he still isn’t rich.
So you sell the cat, or its likeness, or whatever, to Lifetime. Where they make a moving film out of it. With the plotline, “a pet-store cat that is perpetually overlooked and the 12-year-old girl who can communicate with her.” Ok then.
It’s win-win. Except for the audiences, who don’t lose because they have to watch the movie, but because they’re not smart enough to realize there are much better things to do with your time than watch Grumpy Cat on TV. I say this as someone who is writing about a Grumpy Cat movie, but only because I’m getting paid. I’m just following orders.
