Kristen Wiig Will Ferrell

A Deadly Adoption, Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig's Lifetime movie that was confirmed as being scrapped by the network, is to air on June 20. Fans had assumed the homage would be a lost forever, though a billboard in Los Angeles revealed the film will be airing later this month.

The movie celebrates all the hallmarks of a Lifetime movie - low budgets, melodramatic plots and hammy acting - and it's part of the network's 25tha anniversary of making original movies. Such classics as Hostile Makeover, Acts of Obsession and Why I Wore Lipstick to My Mastectomy.

The saga of Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell’s hush-hush Lifetime project could be a movie in itself, but at long last the secret is now officially out, as a giant billboard promoting the movie has appeared in Hollywood. Yes A Deadly Adoption is most definitely happening and we don’t have long to wait for it, as the film is coming to Lifetime on June 20th!

Kristen WiigWiig stars opposite Will Ferrell in A Deadly Adoption.

The film is a spoof of the usual Lifetime movie and stars the two ‘SNL’ alumni as a married couple who take in a pregnant woman (played by ‘90210’s' Jessica Lowndes) with the intention of adopting her unborn baby. Of course things don’t go according to plan for the couple and we can only imagine what’s in store for Wiig and Ferrell.

Two months or so into his new career as an American talk show host, James Corden has been talking about settling into the job, coping with the transatlantic move and the reaction to his show, which has been very popular so far.

36 year old Corden made his debut as host of ‘The Late Late Show’ on CBS at the end of March after replacing the retiring Craig Ferguson, and quickly won plaudits for his warm, friendly presenting style. Speaking with Heat magazine, he said he was “gobsmacked” by the response from audiences.

'Get Hard' Is Another Bromance Movie For Kevin Hart


Kevin Hart Will Ferrell Josh Gad Ice Cube

For an actor who has said he will never play a gay character, Kevin Hart has certainly embraced the bromance, movies that use a romantic-comedy structure to explore an emotional friendship between two men.

Just this past January, Hart infamously said that he would turn down a gay role if it was offered to him. "It's not because I have any ill will or disrespect," he said. "It's because I don't think I'm really going to dive into that role 100 percent because of insecurities about myself trying to play that part. Does that make sense? Like, what I think people are going to think while I'm trying to do this is going to stop me from playing that part the way that I'm supposed to."

Get Hard Review


Good

Audiences may be divided over whether this comedy crosses the line as it looks for laughs in racism and homophobia, but the cast and crew just manage to keep the movie's heart in the right place. At its core, this is another enjoyable bromance that uses cheap gags to keep the audience chuckling awkwardly. And even if the one joke requires a certain level of gay fear, the film has enough spark and personality to poke fun at what is clearly depicted as narrow-minded paranoia.

It opens in a ludicrously expansive Bel Air mansion, where naive investor James (Will Ferrell) lives with his shark-like fiancee Alissa (Alison Brie), daughter of his boss Martin (Craig T. Nelson). Then as he's performing a duet with John Mayer at his engagement party, the feds swoop in and arrest James for embezzlement. But his innocent plea is ignored, and the judge throws the book at him, sentencing him to 10 years at the notorious San Quentin Penitentiary. With 30 days before he has to report to jail, James hires his car valet Darnell (Kevin Hart) to toughen him up for life behind bars, assuming that because he's black Darnell must surely know something about prison life. Darnell needs the cash, so he plays along, turning to his gang-member cousin Russell (Tip "T.I." Harris) for some street cred.

The script adds some clever texture in Darnell's home life with his no-nonsense wife (Dickerson), who is bemused by the fact that her nice-guy husband is pretending to be a seasoned criminal. Like her, the audience is waiting for the sham to collapse hilariously around him, but the screenplay veers off in some unexpected directions that both increase the tension and push the humour closer to the edge. Even so, the movie's core issue is the gaping divide between obscene Westside wealth and the relative economic struggle in South Central. Although director Etan Cohen never takes any of this too seriously, milking every situation for maximum absurdity.
