Grumpy Cat Is Getting a Lifetime Movie That Somehow Crosses 'Home Alone' with 'Die Hard'

Grumpy Cat Is Getting a Lifetime Movie That Somehow Crosses 'Home Alone' with 'Die Hard'

Jun 12, 2014

Image memes have already begun invading all your time spent on Facebook, Twitter, Reddit and beyond, and soon they'll be invading your movies, too. At least if you watch the Lifetime Channel. That's where Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever will be found this holiday season. Yes, this is the second time someone has tried to make a movie about Grumpy Cat.

Rocko's Modern Life writer and Hop director Tim Hill is helping bring the project to life. Lifetime describes it as "a little Home Alone and a little Die Hard," which sounds great until you remember this is a movie starring a cat who is famous because it looks sad all of the time.

We're not sure how you get those two movies out of a plot about a 12-year-old girl who can communicate with a cat that no one wants to buy, but we'd like to see them try-- especially since Lifetime's vice president of original movies says Grumpy Cat will actually be poking fun at the "heartfelt sentimentality" Lifetime movies are known for.

So could Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever actually be a subversive, surprising Lifetime Movie? We're not counting on it, but we also never would have predicted a sad-looking cat would get two movie deals, so anything is possible.
