If you only see one Christmas movie starring a cat, this is a good one. It’s easy to predict that a movie starring “Grumpy Cat” (real name: Tardar Sauce) will be pretty darn cute, but the actual product is probably better than you expected. Without even mentioning the general fun of the movie itself, Grumpy Cat is very adorable, of course. She dances, drives a car, and shoots paintball, and each of these leaves a viewer smiling. The dialogue given to the famous feline is funny and just what you would expect from the frequently frowning cat. If you weren’t sure if you were a Grumpy Cat fan before this, you will be once you see her in action for a full 120 minutes*. (*Includes commercials)

The movie, which is about a girl and Grumpy helping save a pet store by thwarting two thieves, has many great cat moments. Honestly, there are too many to call out all of the best from this film. This film is, for the most part, a series of cute cat moments strung together through an entertaining story. Grumpy as a lead is wonderful, and it proves that a cat with a winning face (though voiced by a human) can easily carry a movie.

This movie almost gets a perfect 4 paws – and if I could give it a 3.75 in a category, it absolutely would. This movie would be perfect – except for one thing:

The first is a couple of sad parts in which we see Grumpy get rejected by some families. To see any cat go through this – particularly one that looks so naturally unhappy – is a little sad to see, and may be a little difficult for the more sensitive cat fans.

It is important to note that there is a side plot that doesn’t involve Grumpy Cat. This almost decreases its quantity paws from a 4 to a 3.5. However, the movie does a good job bringing it back around to Grumpy by making her pop up and add commentary to the scenes. She seems to come up just as one might be wondering, “but where’s Grumpy?” making these moments perfectly timed.

All together, if you are looking for a fun Christmas movie with a delightful feline, I cannot think of one better than this. The movie is feel-good and the cat is too precious for my simple review. This film will leave you wanting to snuggle your cat — and possibly put a Santa hat on it to make a Christmas movie of your own.
