Well, what the hell was that?
A Deadly Adoption, Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig's secretive Lifetime movie project, wasn't strictly a parody of Lifetime movies.
It was, more accurately, an out-and-out Lifetime movie, just performed with an awareness of the easily mocked conventions of the genre, its clichéd situations and dialogue – "You're not supposed to be here! I told you to meet me at the cabin!" – all of it performed with a slight but very precise ironic distancing.
That gap, that distance, was so small it could only be measured metrically, perhaps in millimeters.

"I wanted to watch the monologue … with Steve Martin," Ferrell said Tuesday night on the Late Show with David Letterman, where he showed up dressed like a leprechaun for St. Patrick's Day. "I look up, and there's [Fox News host] Bill O'Reilly."
"Everyone's just clapping, and Bill O'Reilly's like this," Ferrell said, mimicking O'Reilly with a hand under his chin looking stone-faced and unamused. "I don't know if he got a wrong seating assignment or something … but just a real sourpuss."
