While trying to avoid an obsessed girl, rocker Drake Parker meets a young girl, who makes him promise to give her family the best Christmas ever. Later, at the Premiere's first ever Christmas party, a group of teens start to make trouble. Concerned, Josh, Drake's stepbrother, calls the cops about a disturbance, but they are confused and think the entire party is the disturbance, and even arrest the kind Josh. Requiring Josh's help to keep his promise, Drake tries to break his brother out of prison, but is caught. At court, the judge decides that the two must give the girl and her foster family the best Christmas ever, or face years in jail. They face many problems along the way, including Officer Perry, a strict detective that hates Christmas; a colorful group of foster children; and a wild wood chipper. It is up to Drake and Josh to save Christmas for the good-hearted children, or face the consequences. Written by Mr. Top Hat

I expected better
18 December 2008 | by See all my reviews

Its just one of those things that you'll think will be real good but come out like a disappointment. Merry Christmas, Drake and Josh is an example of that...I thought this movie would be really goods but it wasn't that great. It was decent at best. There are many flaws and weird things with the movie. The parents weren't in it much and Megan wasn't really their. She wasn't serve much to do compared to the shows. I also found funny things that Drake and Josh have said. The kids were really annoying and the plot was very weird. Trying to give a little girl the best Christmas ever because of Drake's promise to her. That's a little odd but still turn out okay.

I like the effect they used and sorta the scenes with Josh in jail, that was cool.

overall its get a 5/10 from me...HAHAH
