Here's the Lifetime Movie We Must Band Together and DEMAND T.K. Live Review

By Cindy Davis | Trade News | June 11, 2014 | Comments ()


Upon reading the news that Lifetime will produce and air the movie phenomenon that will be Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever, I was struck by exactly one thought: T.K. must do a live review of this film. Have you ever read a T.K. live review? They are delightful, and his only requirement seems to be that the finest worst calibre film or television show is set before him, and he also seems to have an affinity for Lifetime productions. So obviously, this is a no-brainer.

Claiming Grumpy Cat will bring “a fun and irreverence to Lifetime that we haven’t had,” the network’s original movies vice president, Arturo Interian describes the movie as:

“…a little Home Alone and a little Die Hard.” It’ll follow the story of a lonely (presumably grumpy) pet store cat who can only communicate with a young girl. (And do you know what that cat will say? “I WANT T.K. TO LIVE REVIEW MY MOVIE.”) As a bonus, other internet meme cameos will be featured.


Now, for your part. What you need to do is to comment — no — DEMAND T.K.’s live review. Get it right people, this is not a drill.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    I think Tard needs Rhea Perlman as her voice. (Tard is GC's real name and she's a she so unless TK sounds just slightly feminine... )

  • Jelinas

    It's too late, TK. We all know there's no thwarting this now.

    And I, for one, welcome our new feline overlord.

  • sherryb23

    Oh, yeeeeeesssss. I can already hear the vitriol that will be seeping through my screen. Although I think that, in some gesture of pretending to care about his immortal soul, Pajiba should cough up copious amounts of alcohol for this project.

  • Jezebeelzebub

    Don't try to run from your Destiny, TK. It only makes things worse.
    To sweeten the pot, if you do this review for us, I will hack out one of my grandma's kidneys (she has three, I shit you not) and either keep it for you in case you ever need it, or sell it on Craiglist and send you the proceeds. You will never get a better offer than that ever in your life. I have been saving that kidney for my kid's college fund, but... you know... priorities.

    So who's going to voice Grumpy Cat? I saw a video once where the voiceover sounded like a child and that just won't do. Grumpy Cat needs a voice that's rough and aged. It should be surly and dripping with disdain, like he can barely keep from garroting you with his shoelaces at the injustice of your continued existence in his presence were it not for the bourbon he's currently nursing and— actually, does TK do voiceover work?

  • That was my second thought.

    They're looking for the voice, and you know whose voice would be perfect? YOURS.

  • Bert_McGurt

    I love how even the sled looks like it's giving a thumbs-up to this plan.

  • lingli

    The very first thing I ever read on this site was TK's live review of the Client List. It was a thing of great joy and beauty (unlike the movie itself, obviously). And Grumpy Cat + Holiday Shenanigans + Lifetime TV = a project they clearly designed exactly for TK.

  • TK

    If I could set this comment section on fire with my mind, I would.

    I hate you all.

  • Sirilicious
  • SottoVoce

    That would be sublime, and needs to happen.

  • Jenn TheYellowDart

    I believe that my entire life has led up to this point: PLEASE, DUSTIN. Make this happen.

  • Uriah_Creep

    I assume you've taken the appropriate precautions, Cindy. TK will not take this assault lightly.

  • Welp, better get to work ordering those window bars. Half to keep him in, half to keep him out when he escapes and wreaks his vengeance.

  • Al Borland's Beard

    What part of that was the Die Hard? Will we find out that the girl is actually a German thief pretending to be a terrorist pretending to be a little girl? Does the grumpy cat shoot the I can haz cheeseburger cat?

  • emmalita

    That might be the best movie plot ever.

  • BlackRabbit

    No, just the Grumpy Cat has Alan Rickman's voice.

  • emmalita

    Which is especially funny since Grumpy Cat is a girl.

  • BlackRabbit

    "Yippee-ki-yay, motor-scooter."

  • Martin Holterman

    Yes, please.

  • Ruthie O

    I will turn off my Ad Block for a WHOLE WEEK if this happens. No joke.

  • Ryan Ambrose

    So someone finally asked the ultimate question and got a reply in the form of "of course we can make Die Hard better, just add some kittens".

    TK, you know what we want.

  • Emily Smith

    Now I want there to be a shot for shot remake filmed with kittens.

  • e jerry powell

    I will do no such thing.

  • emmalita

    My concern is that his review will consist of an arterial splash across the monitor, and the slashed artery will belong to Cindy.

  • Maguita NYC

    If TK does the Live Review... I WILL CLEAN HIS BASEMENT!

  • Jericho Smith

    Won't the amount of alcohol required to view this kill T.K.?

    Oh, right.

    **Picard voice** Make it so.

  • Jezzer

    I demand TK's live review of this masterpiece in the making! I realize it might shatter what is left of his psyche, but I am comfortable taking that risk.

  • BlackRabbit

    Sometimes the good of the many outweighs the good of the few.

  • emmalita

    *intoning mindlessly* the greater good

  • Now I'm sad.
