Makes Me Happy

10/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

After a long hiatus of new half-hour episodes from the hit show, the bumbling (but always entertaining...and very cute) brothers return to the TV screen to excite their long time fans with an hour long made for TV movie, cleverly titled Drake and Josh: Really Big Shrimp. The shrimp (which is indeed very large) is a factor, but there's so much more going on. Of course, the rest of the lovable cast is back as well...my personal favorites are Craig and Eric, Helen, Crazy Steve, and Walter. Josh, as Drake's manager is trying to get him a record deal with Spin City records...but an executive from the company woos Josh into signing an exclusivity contract for Drake's song "Makes Me Happy" by tempting him with Really Big Shrimp. Helen (Josh's boss at the Premiere Movie Theatre) is getting married, but of course chaos ensues and now Josh also has to compete with ex-girlfriend Mindy who now has the much coveted assistant manager position at the theater. The "movie" is not long enough for my tastes,(although the weekend long marathon of favorite episodes was very satisfying) but incorporates all of the best Drake and Josh antics that I've come to love over the years. There's a rumor that this may be the last venture into the step sibling series, and that makes me sad, but getting to hear Drake perform one of my favorite songs from his album It's Only Time and reminiscing about all the laughs this show has brought me,definitely "Makes Me Happy."

Best 1 hour TV movie in the summer of 2007!

This was one of the best TV movies I have ever seen since summer 2007. Drake sang a song from his latest album called "Makes Me Happy" and it was the hottest song everyone in his area has ever known. Helen was going to get married so she invited her whole family to come. But I believe there was no room in Helen's house so her stinky and hideous grandma had to sleep in Drake and Josh's house in Megan's room! The whole thing was frightening! So Drake and Josh go to L.A. to get hooked up with Spin City Records and Josh was so occupied by the shrimp, he signed a contract! When Alan told him all the contracts were standard stuff, he didn't read it carefully and made the song a mess! After Drake and Josh got home to their room, they freaked out and saw lots of changes to their room. Megan had an attitude with them freaking out and said it was her room, but it was their room. The second time Drake and Josh went to Spin City Records, Drake heard the messy song and got extremely mad at Josh and fired him! When Drake and Josh came into their room and saw Megan and all her friends making cakes, Megan had an attitude with them again the second consecutive time. There was that one girl that was helping Megan who thinks Josh is cute and she has a crush on him. Drake was going to get even with Alan by putting fruit flies in his car. He could flatten Alan's car tires, all 4 of them. At the premiere, Mindy was the new assistant manager and it got Josh upset! When Josh went to Spin City Records, he replaced the fake song with the original version of the song. During the Super Bowl, Megan even had an attitude with Helen's grandma! Why cant their parents punish her or hit her for that? When the original version of Drake's song played on Super Bowl, Drake was so excited and decide to forgive Josh. After that, they found out switching the versions were illegal! They were close to go to prison! At the Premiere, Mindy took this job cause she wanted to spend time with Josh, even though they broke up. Meanwhile, Drake and Josh had to go to Spin City Records about the switched versions of the song. They could be in trouble, but they're not because the record company got lots of requests, e-mails and downloads wanting to buy Drake's song. The song was available on the website and suddenly, it crashed the server and made a big jump to #1 on the charts! The song was a big summer hit! Then Alan got fired for messing up Drake's song. At Helen's wedding, Drake played his #1 summer song to everybody that showed up. Later, Megan went back to sleep in her own room and when that happened, the president of Spin City Records sent the home of Drake and Josh dozens of shrimp and Megan and her friends were eating lots of them cause they loved them. After Megan told Drake and Josh they loved it, Megan had an attitude with them again the third consecutive time! Why cant Drake and Josh hit her or stand up to her? Megan should either get hit really hard, get grounded for a week, month or a whole life, or go to timeout for a very long time for having an attitude when Helen's grandma was at their house. After Megan left Drake and Josh's room, there was 1 shrimp left and they were fighting for it. Its just like that one episode, "Foam Finger", when they fought at the baseball game.
