Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever on Lifetime starring Aubrey Plaza.I will love Aubrey Plaza until my eyes stop working and I can no longer hear, but this trailer for the upcoming Lifetime movie, in which the Parks and Recreation star voices viral sensation Grumpy Cat, confirms all of my obvious fears— Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever looks terrible. While it seems Lifetime has smartly gone the way of being self-aware (notice the fourth wall breaking throughout the trailer) I doubt it’s going to be enough to make this family holiday movie the intelligent family holiday movie spoof I’m still hoping it’ll be.

And while I’m all for Aubrey Plaza booking as many roles in Hollywood as humanly possible, I’m not even sure this makes sense. I get it. Plaza is known mostly for playing April Ludgate, who, if you’re going to superficially label the character, I guess you can do so with “grumpy.” But April is more detached than she is grumpy, no? I’d watch a movie called Mildly Detached Cat, but I’m not sure about this. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think. Will you be tuning in to Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever?
