THE BIRTH OF A PLAN GONE WRONG.
Robert and Sarah Benson (Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig) plan to adopt a child and decide to let its mother (Jessica Lowndes) move in with them during the last months of her pregnancy… but she has ulterior motives. Made for Lifetime as a tribute to the 25th anniversary of its movie franchise, this project confused critics and audiences. Was it a parody of Lifetime’s typically cheesy soap thrillers? Or was it done in earnest? Or is it a little of both? Maybe the last option is the most likely, but the movie has neither thrills nor laughs, except in the ridiculous opening scene.
2015-U.S. Made for TV. 84 min. Color. Directed by Rachel Lee Goldenberg. Cast: Will Ferrell (Robert Benson), Kristen Wiig (Sarah Benson), Jessica Lowndes (Bridgette/Joni), Alyvia Alyn Lind, Jake Weary, Brooke Lyons.
