Grumpy Cat is a lonely cat 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?" Written by Lifetime

Grumpy Cat - Misunderstood Dark Genius?
8 December 2014 | by estreet-evaSee all my reviews

Sharp-eared viewers who catch Aubrey Plaza (as Grumpy Cat) introduce Meghan Charpentier's white-trash-named and spelled "Chrystal" as "part of the last generation on a dying planet" understand they are in for a seditious battering of all things bright and beautiful. Grumpy Cat's venom spews equally over Chrystal, Christmas, modern American mall culture, parenting, and all the tenants of Lifetime movies. How this thing finagled a "G" rating is a thing of mystery if no other reason than a fantasy sequence when Grumpy is tied down and gassed to death. The movie doesn't break as much as just ignores the fourth wall with Grumpy returning from commercial breaks expressing disbelief that the audience is still watching and wonder why you don't do something more productive with your limited lifespan. When the plot slows, bubbles with Grumpy in them appear to lampoon the current action or to just talk about something more interesting. Evan Todd and Isaac Haig as the baddies (although everyone comes across as fairly useless) trade quips worth of a Tarantino film with out the sickening pretense. Daniel Roebuck as super creepy mall guard "George" brings a discomforting weirdness particularly when he hits on young, female mall workers. If it all sounds like the satire of the standard Lifetime Christmas movie went a little overboard then you got that right. In short, if you like your chocolate Santa's and your comedies dark, this is a must see (keep the kids away from it).
