Grumpy Cat Movie
If you haven’t heard of Grumpy Cat then you’re very unlikely to be reading this post.
It seems that the internet sensation that is Grumpy Cat now has a movie deal with a feel good straight to TV family comedy on the way.
Now I don’t want to influence your opinion, so here’s the trailer for you to watch >>
And, now that you’ve watched it we can talk about it.
I’ll be honest with you – when I watched the trailer the first thing I thought was “WOW that looks bad” and “What? Grumpy Cat is female?”
I don’t know why but I always imagined Grumpy Cat to be male. I expected quite a deep and droll voice – something like the monotone history teacher I had in year 7. That or maybe a slight Russian accent.
I didn’t expect Parks & Recreations Aubrey Plaza. Now I know she can deliver deadpan well, and she did the voice of Daria in a College Humor Originals episode, but she doesn’t deliver the voice how Daria Daria, actress Tracy Grandstaff, does.
So for me, while I do love a good trash Christmas movie (last Christmas I watched Christmas Bounty), I won’t be watching Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever. In fact, I feel this should have been Grumpy Cat’s owners answer when pitched the proposal –
I’m going to stick to one of the books – Grumpy Cat or The Grumpy Guide to Life – so I can add my own Grumpy Cat voice (which would be me putting on a male voice) to make words to make Grumpy Cat come alive…
I’d also love to know what you think about the trailer in the comments below!
