Question: What happens when you take two of our generation's greatest comedy stars, Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig, and throw them into the mess of a blender that is a Lifetime original move?

Answer: A Deadly Adoption.

Though it might seem like any one of Lifetime's other ridiculous made-for-TV flicks, A Deadly Adoption is purposefully poking fun at itself with an over-the-top, totally-contrived premise and the kind of acting you might see at your local community playhouse's amateur night. That said, it's probably going to be kind of amazing.
