A Deadly Adoption Trailer: Will Ferrell Faces Crazy Surrogate, Endless Tropes

Lifetime just released the extended trailer for Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig’s highly-anticipated film A Deadly Adoption (Saturday, 8/7c)  and let me tell you, this thing looks layered.

The super-serious poster and teaser trailer left much to the imagination, but this new footage spells the whole plot out in black and white: Wiig and Ferrell’s characters, unable to conceive a child on their own, invite Jessica Lowndes’ sexy surrogate to live with them in exchange for her still-gestating baby — only nothing goes according to plan. I’m talking marital spats, forbidden trysts, the works.

In other words, it’s exactly what you’d expect from a Lifetime original movie, down to the twist(?) ending in which Lowndes’ character goes full-psycho and hunts down Ferrell with a gun. (Twenty bucks says Wiig saves the day!)

Hit PLAY on the trailer above, then drop a comment with your thoughts below: Do you already have this programmed into your DVR?

    Looks like “Adoption-nado” to me. Just sayin’.

    I wish there was more of a hint about this being a spoof…this could be literally any other ‘serious’ Lifetime movie. Definitely watching this. Haha

    I only care about Jessica Lowndes. I loved her in 90210 and although she was a terrible actress, she has big bewbs.

  5. Meh says:

    This is definitely a spoof. The slow tear of the magazine cover….lol

  6. matty says:

    I thought they had cancelled this project?

  7. Cas says:

    Is this based on a true story? How did they get Will and Kristen to do a lifetime movie? Seems odd but I will probably watch it :)

  8. Rachel says:

    Will looks like he’s dressed for a part on SNL lol.

  9. Leah says:

    Their other daughter HAS to be young Amanda Clarke’s sister IRL, right?

  10. Jared says:

    Jessica Lowndes sure knows how to play crazy. Ive missed her since 90210 has been over.

  11. GeoDiva says:

    Has to be a parody, right?

    I have a feeling they clipped together every non-parody moment in the movie. I just can’t imagine Ferrell and Wiig playing anything straight.

  13. Pati says:

    Is this really real, they even look like they want to laugh so bad at every scene.

    “and let me tell you, this thing looks layered.” I am assuming this quote is a joke. Seems just like something seen in the 80s and 90s. I hoping it’s better than what you describe. I’ve got a feeling that it’s going to be as stupid as those moronic Parks guy/guys recreating the intro to SImon and Simon and Hart to Hart. Shot for shot- what the heck’s funny about that- nothing! Afraid we’ll hear that it’s just a shot for shot remake of a little known Lifetime movie from the 90s.

  15. What’s up, I log on to your new stuff on a regular basis.
    Your writing style is awesome, keep doing what you’re doing!
