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

As we see Violet and Lily's first physical fight, they bump into a table with with wheels on the bottom of its legs and different colored ups sitting on top of it, and it rolls away and the cups fall over. Yet after they go into the kitchen and fight more and the camera goes back to Drake and Josh talking to Mary-Alice, Zigfee, and Trey, you can see the table in the background in it's original position, untouched.

Another dysfunctional Christmas family movie that is a stinker
14 December 2008 | by gimmemore10See all my reviews

The latest Drake and Josh movie was not only unoriginal, it just wasn't good period. The movie tried something different, but just failed and the jokes were unfunny. It seemed like we weren't seeing a Drake and Josh movie just a stinker.

Merry Christmas, Drake and Josh is about Drake and Josh spending time on Christmas Day, but he promises a girl named Mary Alice to have the best Christmas ever and since Drake and Josh are framed for a crime they have to give Mary Alice the best Christmas ever or they go to jail.

I thought this film was just boring. The film didn't take us in anything new or special and when the film would feel tired it would try to insert a repetitive joke or try and create another conflict. If there was any movie that is hard to make it would be a Christmas movie. You don't believe me? For example Four Christmases, Fred Claus, Deck the halls, Unaccompanied Minors, Santa Clause 3: The escape Claus, and should I continue?

Overall I thought Merry Christmas, Drake and Josh was a poor, boring effort that could have been better than what it was.
