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

Rather Disappointed
31 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Big fan of the show since it came out five years ago, and the first two TV movies were great. But this? It's different. It wasn't really very funny; I laughed maybe five times. The humor was over the top at times and tried too hard to be funny; unlike the show, it just wasn't in a lot of scenes. Josh Peck just isn't Josh Nichols anymore; he not only looks different but IS different. The plot was unbelievable in most instances, and not overly creative. While other Drake and Josh movies/the TV show didn't try to make you learn a lesson, one thing that's nice about them since a lot of kid's TV shows do, this movie definitely did. And the ending was just kind of cheesy, honestly.

But, it was Drake and Josh, and seeing both of them together again on screen was kind of nice. They still have that great on screen chemistry that helps pull this movie together. Josh still has his wonderful spazzy moments, and Drake is still an obnoxious, self centered jerk at times.

Worth a watch if it's on TV or somewhere, but I wouldn't say buy it. It definitely disappointed me, as I was looking forward to more of the Drake and Josh that you just don't get here.
