You know the Lifetime Original Movie formula: heinous crime, family melodrama, over-acting and maudlin theatrics. Somewhere, there must be a Mad Lib form floating around the Lifetime offices in case they run out of steam. In what sounds like a ridiculous April Fools’ Day joke, Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig have combined their considerable comedic talents to take on that very formula — yes, really.

This trailer for Masterminds, which teams Zach Galifianakis with Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess, claims it is “based on a true story.” And its Wikipedia page says basically the same thing; that this tale of blundering criminals is inspired by a 1997 robbery that took place in Charlotte North Carolina, where bandits stole over $17 million from the vault of an armored car company.

A few key members of the SNL cast and crew must love “The Californians” because the much-derided sketch was brought back to life for the show’s star-studded 40th anniversary special. For those of us who have always enjoyed this bizarre sketch (and there are about three of us), it’s a welcome return and we will greedily drink up the angry tears of everyone else.

If you’ve seen any of Sia’s music videos or performances, then you’re familiar with a few things: one, that she never shows her face. Two, that she’s been using ‘Dance Moms’ star Maddie Ziegler as her mini-dancing-me. And three, that her videos feature passionate, inventive dance moves. A Sia performance is a real treat, and the one she put on at the Grammys last night was particularly delightful, as former ‘SNL’ star Kristen Wiig joined Sia and Ziegler on stage for an energetic rendition of “Chandelier.”
