Grumpy Cat gets her own movie tonight at 8p on Lifetime and Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever might be the network’s best holiday film ever!
Grumpy Cat (Aubrey Plaza) lives in Whiskers Pet Shop in a mall. The owner has been having some rough times and he hasn’t been paying the rent. The landlord tells him, he has two days to get him all the money or he will be evicted. Now, he has to find a way to get all of that money to pay his rent.
That is where JoJo comes in, he is a beautiful and very expensive dog and thankfully someone wants to adopt him. That means Whiskers is saved…or is it?
You see, there are two guys who want to earn enough money to tour with their rock band and they see JoJo as they cash ticket. They decide to break in to Whiskers and steal him.
Then there is 12-year-old Chyrstal (Megan Charpentier), and she doesn’t have many friends. She volunteers at Whiskers, so she has something to do. One day at the mall, she meets a Santa who tells her to make a wish. She wishes for a friend.
That friend turns out to be Grumpy Cat. By some miracle, ever since she made that wish, she can hear Grumpy Cat talk.
Now the two of them are fast friends, which is a really good thing. That is because she is in the store when the two guys come to rob it. Now it is up to them to save the day, will Chyrstal and Grumpy Cat be able to do? You will just have to tune in to find out.
That and to watch a really cute movie that pokes fun at itself. The film literally gets catty with itself and that is going to make you enjoy it ever more. Seriously, who doesn’t love talking cat movies? And one that is on the joke makes is even better.
Don’t take my word for it, take my cat’s word for it. When I asked her how it was, she said, “Purrfect!” Actually, she just purred, but we know what she meant. And you know will know exactly what Grumpy Cat means because unlike my kitty, the internet sensation has one! Meow!
High School Possession possess Lifetime tonight at 8p and you want to let the spirit of this telemovie compel you.
Chloe (Jennifer Stone) was your average high school senior, but after her father walked out on her, she has been a completely different person. She is attacking people, drinking, sleeping around and missing school. No one knows what is wrong with her, but her mom (Ione Skye) and her best friend, Lauren (Janel Parrish), are not going to give up on her. Even though she seems like a lost cause.

When he is refuses to help her, Lauren and The Chosen decide to their own exorcism. Will it work?
You have to tune in this suspenseful well-executed movie with a surprise ending to find out.
Lizzie Borden Took an Axe was such a huge hit for Lifetime that the network is bringing it back as a limited series. The telemovie ended with her acquittal, and Lizzie Borden: The Fall River Chronicles will be a fictionalized look at her life after that with her sister in their new home. The press release describes the follow-up as, “when numerous people close to Lizzie – ranging from her half-brother to Broadway luminaries and the head of the criminal underworld — start to mysteriously die under brutal and strange circumstances, legendary Pinkerton detective Charlie Siringo (Cole Hauser) becomes determined to prove her involvement in their ultimate demise.”
Christina Ricci and Clea Duvall will reprise their roles in this 6 episode drama that will debut some time next year.
I hope that this the show is successful and done well because I would like to see Lifetime do more follow-ups to other real life stories that captivated us all. Imagine the possibilities.
When I first moved to LA, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to interview Brittany Murphy. The two of us bonded over our brown curly hair, although her’s was not curly at the time. She was sweet, innocent, loveable and someone you could totally see being good friends with. She just oozed star quality. Amanda Fuller (who is even worse in this than she is on Last Man Standing) captured none of these qualities in The Brittany Murphy Story that airs tonight on Lifetime at 8p.
Not only is she horribly miscast, but the biopic is also totally unnecessary. There is nothing interesting about this choppy tale. They skip over some of her highlights for I don’t know what filler. You do not learn anything about this late great actress.
She was discovered in acting class, did a commercial, convinced her mom to move to LA and started acting. She did several TV shows, but that is barely a blip in the story. Then she did Clueless, and a lot of red carpets. Just when she was getting big, her mom’s second diagnosis of breast cancer took over her life. She gave up acting for a while to be with her mom, and Hollywood forgot about her. Since she is at her lowest point, she starts dating former-photographer Simon Monjack (Eric Petersen, he was completely forgettable as Kirstie Alley’s son on that crappy TV Land sitcom). Even though people warn her against him, she marries him. He gives her pills, prescription only, to help her with different ailments like depression.
Finally, she gets sick and refuses to go to the hospital because she doesn’t want more rumors of drug abuse spread about her. It is a fatal mistake as we know, and the movie ends. Before the credits roll, they tell us, what we already knew, about her death.
So this movie tells us nothing new. It doesn’t portray her as the special person that she was and Amanda Fuller is just hideous in the role. Therefore, if you were thinking of watching, there has to be something else you can do. I mean, sleeping is even more exciting than watching this dull, poorly done movie.
It is shame that Brittany Murphy’s story is told this way because she deserved so much better than this piece of sh!t.
We have anxiously been waiting for months to see the beginning of The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story, and today Lifetime released the first five minutes from the telemovie.
After watching those first few minutes, it looks exactly how we knew it was going to be. It’s going to be so bad that it is like going to be like totally awesome. It is like, for sure, going to sweep the Emmys next year.
Seriously, I don’t know about you, but I’m so excited for September 1st. I can’t wait to learn even more about the lives of our favorite high schoolers from the ’90s when the cameras weren’t rolling.
Tell me I am not the only one who is doing a Jesse Spano over this movie, especially after seeing how it all starts out. I am so having a Zack attack as I type!
Lifetime released a sneak peek from The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story and the telemovie that debuts on September 1st is going to be an instant classic. I have a feeling it is going to be this year’s Sharknado. As in so bad it is the best thing to happen to television in a while!
Tonight at 10p The Lottery makes its debut on Lifetime and you don’t want to miss the network’s best series yet. And I’ve watched almost every Lifetime series since they started making their own shows, so I would know.
In 2015, women are slowly becoming infertile for an unknown reason. Within a few years, the last human baby will be born and still no one can figure out why women stopped having children. In 2015, Dr. Alison Lennon (Marley Shelton) comes up with a way to fertilize the first eggs in years. Seems like that would be good news for her, but it is not.
When the government finds out that she’s fertilized 53 eggs and is about to do same to 47 more, they take over her project and kick her out. Now she is on her own, but there are people after and they want her dead.
Right now, those eggs are in lab, and they need to find 100 women to impregnate. The President (Yul Vasquez) decides to hold a lottery to find those women from all walks of life. Who are those lucky women?
But that is only part of our story, Kyle (Michael Graziadei), is the father to one of the last 6 kids born in The US. His wife is a drug addict who left him high and dry to take care of their son, Elvis. The mothers at Elvis’ school don’t think that Kyle is doing a good job as his dad, so they try to get the special kid taken away from his father. When they succeed, he has to kidnap his son to get him back. That leads to them being chased, but will they be found? And what happens when they are caught?
The Lottery is unlike anything I’ve ever seen on television, and it’s so well done you will be hooked from the first minute. So tune it because I promise you will not be disappointed in the brilliant drama that makes us look at world where we are the ones facing extinction. How does that change us human beings? Are we better people for it or are we worse? That is something the show and you will ponder as you watch.
Witches of East End is back on Lifetime at 9p and you don’t want to miss this bewitching show.

His brother, Dash (Eric Winter), is realizing he has powers, how will he handle it? His ex-fiancee, Freya (Jenna Dewan-Tatum), is dealing with her new powers as is her sister, Ingrid (Rachel Boston). No matter what the sisters do, they can’t save their mom. A mystery person shows up, will he be the solution to their problem or will he makes things worse?
You just have to tune in for the season premiere to find out.
On September 1st, Lifetime is going to air The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story and I am Jessie Spano excited for it.
The telemovie is a behind the scenes look about how 6 teens went from no names to household names almost overnight. So how do you experience the high life while being told to be good? That is what this movie is going to tell us.
Now before you start playing the casting game, the movie that has being filmed right now has already been cast. Here is what Lifetime said about that:
With casting by the original series’ casting director, Robin Lippin (Lizzie McGuire), Dylan Everett (Degrassi: The Next Generation) is set to play Mark-Paul Gosselaar in the role of mischievous ringleader “Zack Morris.” Sam Kindseth (Shameless) is Dustin Diamond, everyone’s favorite geek and loveable sidekick “Screech.” Julian Works (Paranormal Activity, Modern Family) fills the shoes of superstar Mario Lopez as the hunky jock “A.C. Slater.” Alyssa Lynch (The High Jumping Witch) plays the role of America’s favorite sweetheart, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, who originated the part of Kelly Kapowski. Tiera Skovbye (Supernatural, Girl in Progress) takes on the role of talented beauty Elizabeth Berkley and her beloved character “Jessie Sapano.” Rounding out the cast is Taylor Russell McKenzie (Blink) who will portray Lark Voorhies and her on-screen persona, the privileged “Lisa Turtle.”
So what are you doing on September 1st, probably the same thing I am doing, watching The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story.
