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

Do not go by other comments...It's fun!
16 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

I had seen the comments here before watching the movie. Some people here bashed this movie as not funny, some others have said it was OK. But I went ahead and watched the movie, and to my not-so-surprise, I found the movie very funny. I had many laughs. Thoroughly enjoyable movie. Drake and Josh are back! The movie starts with Drake and Josh planning their Christmas, and then there is this Christmas Party. A Santa(Drake), A girl who is an orphan. This girl asks Drake for "the best Christmas ever". An emotional Drake promises that.

You can break a Christmas Promise! You just cannot! And the rest of the story is all about how Drake and Josh try to make this Best Christmas ever happen.
