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

More Sad Than Funny
29 November 2014 | by (Allentown, PA) – See all my reviews

I only saw this movie once in 2009, 5 years ago. From what I remember, I didn't like the movie as it isn't the Drake & Josh we know. I mean the show by all means is hilarious, I love the show and I just reviewed it on IMDb, giving it a 10/10. I also really like the other movie they made for this show, Drake & Josh Go Hollywood. That movie was a great action movie they made with the characters Drake & Josh. It even got lots of viewers, and was critically acclaimed, that's awesome!! However, I saw this movie once and did not like it. I'll explain why I don't like it for a few reasons. Again the writing seemed to be different than it was in the show which made the movie less bad. But, in this movie it seems like Drake and Josh are trying to be less selfish, are trying to do things for other people, and nobody likes them or trusts them, even though they didn't do anything that should make them disliked in the first place, and those two were doing everything they can. So, this definitely is not a movie you'd want to see for Christmas even if you are a fan of Drake & Josh, unless you want to know what happens. I give it a 2/10.
