A Deadly Adoption – Official Trailer – MarVista Entertainment

Fatal adoption might have been the funniest movie joke of all time. AAA comedy stars Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig were slated to star in the cheap-life thriller, playing it entirely straight. The plan was to slot it into Lifetime’s regular basic cable release schedule, commercial-free, so random people could catch it and say, “wait, what the hell is going on here?”

But someone spilled the beans. Preliminary details of the film have leaked to the press, spoiling the surprise and indeed the entire film as it is nothing more than this one joke. The source of the leak was never revealed, but my guess is Lifetime itself. Mainly because The Hollywood Reporter seems to have been sent a full press release about it on April 1st. Lifetime paid for the movie and no doubt valued the ratings they could get from having a new Ferrell/Wiig movie more than honesty. a joke, even if that joke is the only reason the movie exists to begin with. The only downside was Ferrell getting mad at them (which he was) but that’s not what he was going to do other A movie of life.

Where to broadcast? Nowhere officially, but you can watch horrible windowboxed version on YouTube (More trouble than it’s worth, trust me).
