"A Deadly Adoption," Lifetime TV's 90-minute parody of itself premiered on Saturday night. If you weren't among the millions who sat out of legitimate plans to watch Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell battle a psycho killer while nursing a dangerously diabetic daughter, fear not—there's "Cliff's Notes." Gifs win again.
The movie stars a typical American family, obviously.
Like all families they enjoy eerie bodies of water.
Enter: The pretty girl who true to the Lifetime trope will ultimately lose her mind and attempt to kill everyone.
Mayhem ensues and everyone almost dies twice.
But six months later...everyone just wants to dance.
