Storyline

Casey and Derek are back and continue their hilarious sibling rivalry during a family vacation to visit their grandmother at her beautiful lake front lodge. Things heat up with Casey when she meets Jesse, a handsome young dancer who is a waiter at the lodge. Meanwhile as Derek is "chilling" on his vacation, he falls for Roxy, the rich girl who lives across the lake. But when Roxy's father, a greedy land developer, threatens to destroy the natural beauty around them, the McDonald-Venturi kids band together to save the lake and the lodge. Written by Anonymous

A tad disappointing, but nice nonetheless
18 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Life with Derek was a great family show. After family shows about fame and wizards and other unrealistic, it was nice to see a family oriented show that was well written and relatively well acted.

Good: - Lizzie was surprisingly less annoying in the movie. Also prettier. - Edwin was as dorky as ever. - The Plot was nice and consistent enough, although the dancing was odd. - Nice scenery. - Dasey moments were satisfactory. - Nico's guest starring :)

Bad: - Casey suddenly obsessed with Dancing. A little out of character.

  • Nora and George are as dumb as ever. - The love interests .. somewhat


unneeded and Derek's was downright boring. - No mention of past characters. No Emily, Sally, Max, Sam, Kendra, Ralph, Paul .. it would've been nice to have a final appearance.

Overall the movie was able to captivate my attention enough to finish it at least. The pace was good enough, it was nice to see the characters again, everything ended rather nicely and it was quite funny (although i thought it lacked a bit in the comedy department)
