Storyline

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

Nice Movie But Starting To Get Old
5 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've always been a fan of the Drake and Josh TV show. Two classic Nickelodeon characters being brought together onto one show with random crazy adventures and mayhem. I could relate to the show being in high school from the year the show started to graduating around when it ended. But even though it ended, Nickelodeon felt the need to bring back all the cast for one last movie in a very twisty tervy Christmas adventure. First off, I enjoyed this movie. I give it a 7 out of 10 because I think it was a decent movie. But nothing more than a decent movie. I have watched the last Drake and Josh movie where they went to Los Angeles and I did not enjoy it that much. This one was better, but now by much. First, I'm going to explain what the movie was about.

Merry Christmas Drake and Josh has a very bland story line. A number of events lead to both Drake and Josh getting trouble with the law and having to give another family their "best Christmas ever." During their adventure, we get to see all of the classic Drake and Josh characters and locations. Character wise, Crazy Steve is a supporting actor (from iCarly which he is very good in), Helen is back, Josh's girlfriend makes a couple of cameos in the film (who really turned into a good looking woman), and we also get to see the high school nerds Craig and Eric, and of course, Drake and Josh's parents and Megan. Location wise, we get to see the premier again (even though the original was rumored to be burned down), and the main household. Other than a basic introduction on what and who is in the movie, you will have to see it for yourself to get the full storyline down. There are a number of problems I had with the movie though. First off, as I said before, I'm not a fan of Drake and Josh's movies. The duo made an excellent TV show, but one long adventure just goes on for too long to squeeze into a movie. Secondly, Josh looks too old. I didn't mind the final episodes that were filmed two years ago, but now Josh looks much more mature with thick facial hair growing in and a not so childish looking body.

In conclusion, I did enjoy this movie and I think it's worth watching if you haven't seen it, but I don't think I need to see it again. I think this was just a "family reunion" more than a heartfelt performance in a movie. In my opinion, the story line doesn't make any sense in the way Drake and Josh are forced to do community service for another family and that is kind of what the whole movie is about.
