Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig are two of the biggest comedy stars on the planet, and they secretly filmed a Lifetime Original Movie in 2015. Audiences expected something wacky and satirical, but what they got was "A Deadly Adoption," a straight-up, no-nonsense thriller in which Ferrell and Wiig play a troubled married couple who invite a pregnant woman into their lives, only to become mired in kidnapping and betrayal.
Patrons of Canceled Too Soon will learn all about "A Deadly Adoption" in a new episode of The Canceled Too Soon Monthly Movie, where film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold unearth and review fascinating (and sometimes long-forgotten) TV movies, mini-series and specials. "A Deadly Adoption" makes for a fascinating episode, as it will take some serious debating to figure out just how much of this movie was meant to be taken seriously, let alone whether it's any danged good.
