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

One of my favorite Christmas movies, so far
6 December 2008 | by ilikechipsandsalsaSee all my reviews

I loved this movie so much that I actually made an account on here just to add a comment! :D Normally, it's really hard to keep my attention in almost any movie, but I watched every second of this one and never turned away from my TV unless the commercials came on! Mostly because it was good from BEGINNING to END. I loved it. I watched it yesterday and today and plan on watching it again for the third time. It was really funny. I laughed throughout almost every scene. Some parts I wanted to cry, and some parts made me smile so big. :) It was SO much better compared to their Hollywood movie! It's on my list of favorite Christmas movies, now.
