When it came to this movie in particular, it seems as though this wouldhave been the finale to Kim Possible's TV run as a cartoon. Turns outfans of the series protested to the mouse house and demanded anotherseason. Talk about dedication. What makes this final TV movie of babysitter turned World Saver Kim Possible more enjoyable than KimPossible: A Sitch in Time (2003) or any other feature is that it nicelyties together the loose ends for Kim Possible in her academic careerand personal life. Kim Possible: A Sitch in Time (2003) just hadPossible and Stoppable correcting the altered past caused by Dr.Drakken and his goonies playing with the magic time monkey idol. It wasgood but did not move anything forward, just fixing the past. Here, Dr.Drakken gets even more personal than before to disrupt Kim'slivelihood. The best part is Dr. Drakken actually having the upperhandon everybody for a while.
When a new boy named Eric comes to Kim's school, she begins to fall forhim. This results in Ron Stoppable becoming jealous, thus havinghimself reassess his feelings for her. There really isn't much to sayabout what isn't good about this TV feature. The only thing that'sworthy of a critiquing is that the running time could have been longerso Kim Possible could have went out with a bang. Then again, perhaps itwas also kept short because fans were demanding another season afterthis, so it's difficult to say where it really should've concluded.Everything else manages to entertain with ease. All the voice actorsreturn for their respective roles and give enjoyable performances too.Christy Carlson Romano and Will Friedle voicing the comedic action duostill have the skills to do their characters justice.
Nancy Cartwright as Rufus also is another fun role. Even the minorcharacters return; Wade (Tahj Mowry), Monique (Raven-Symoné), Ned, theBueno Natcho Cashier (Eddie Deezen) and even Maurice LaMarche (bestknown as The Brain) plays a character. And of course Shego (NicoleSullivan) and Dr. Drakken (John DiMaggio) return too as the villain duothat just can't seem to ever get it right when it comes to worldconquest. As a side note, April Winchell voices a news reporter andit's hilarious to hear the way she speaks for this character. As astory, Disney writers Robert Schooley and Mark McCorkle made good useof what happens when you take people for granted. Ron Stoppable was soused to being around Kim Possible that he didn't realize what wouldhappen if another guy entered Kim's life that took more precedence overhim. It is a very common issue that friend zoned guys come in contactwith. Viewers should also have fun watching Stoppable notice that Dr.Drakken still doesn't know his name after so long.
As an animation feature, everything is done accordingly. Since thisisn't an official film feature, the animation wasn't polished becauseit still looks like it belonged to the cartoon. It's nothing to getfussy over though. The action and music also satisfy as usual. DirectorSteve Loter, who has worked the Kim Possible TV series and the BuzzLightyear of Star Command TV series definitely knows how to make theaction fun. There's plenty of explosions, fight sequences and otherthings that not every cartoon now a days displays for youngeraudiences. Lastly, the music provided by TV composer Adam Berry isfine. Berry continues to play the Kim Possible theme and even includes"the naked mole rat" number for Rufus. Any scene in between is usedappropriately too. Not much else to say other than a fun time.
Except for not being longer than 70 minutes for Kim Possible's last TVmovie, all the other components work like they have been. The voice-actors, action animation, music and comedy continues to entertain fansof the series.

It's too bad "Kim Possible" is done, but this movie makes sure it goesout with a bang. There's a great story, filled with true feelings,angst, teenage humor that should make anyone laugh, and some reallycool action scenes. It's one of the best animated movies and TV moviesout there. It's definitely the best Disney Channel Original Movie, overJohnny Tsunami and The Famous Jett Jackson Movie. This movie providesthe great ending that all the fans really wanted (no spoilers here).Kim Possible used to be a show I would watch with my little siblings,but now, three years after it started, I like to watch it on my own.The movie is no different. It's just a great all around movie that'sfun for anyone who wants to watch it. Unfortunately, it's not on TV toomuch anymore, but I believe it's available on DVD, so go out and rentit if you don't buy it.
So what's the sitch? The usual, Drakkan is preparing to do one of his"take over the world" schemes, aided by Shego. This time, Kim Possible(Christy Carlson Romano in her trademark role) has a boyfriend, Eric,that she has good feelings about (don't worry, he's cool), while herbest friend, Ron Stoppable (Will Friedle, in another great role justfor him) starts to realize that HE has feelings for Kim! Well, themovie goes and sticks with what made the show great: the catchyphrases, handy gadgets, Ron in trouble, and of course, Kim saving theday. Go see it!! 8/10 --spy

Even before Season #3, many fans of Kim Possible have been anxiouslyawaiting the chance for Kim and sidekick Ron Stoppable to go fromfriends to G-rated teenage lovers, as most shows on The Disney Channeltend to do. But while the promos for this second(not first) animatedTV-Movie made it look more dramatic than expected, it's just toned downenough for a Disney movie. And like "Kim Possible: A Stitch in Time,"Drakken's evil plot involved the defeat of Kim, along with worldconquest.
Kim just saved the world from another one of Dr. Drakken's evilplots... or so she thinks. All she really saved was Nakasumi(possiblyvoiced by Clyde Kusatsu) from a potential kidnapping. Unfortunately,she's the only member of the Middleton Maddog cheerleading squadwithout a date for the prom, and as far as she's concerned hersidekick's not exactly boyfriend material. Enter a new boy namedEric(voiced by "Phil of the Future's" Ricky Ullman), who our Kimmie-cubsuddenly has the hots for. As soon as Ron realizes this, he becomesseverely jealous of the new boy. Since this is television, Ron'ssuspicions about Kim's new beau turn out to be right on the money,because Eric's got a dirty little secret... no he's not a junkie or acloset homosexual, but let's just say he's fake and evil. Meanwhile,Drakken acquires Ron's favorite restaurant chain Bueno Nacho and doesaway with Naco night, replacing it with a toy in a kiddie meal thatevery kid wants... the very type of toy Kim was used in to marketMcDonald's Happy Meals in real life two or three years earlier. Ah, butwhat nobody realizes until it's too late is that these toys are riggedwith super cyber-technology developed by Kim's dad, and stolen byDrakken to be used for(you guessed it) world conquest. As expected frommost series-based movies, it has additional CGI-animation todistinguish it from the existing series, but the CGI is a little moreimpressive than in "A Stitch in Time," even if it's more noticeablethan in the first movie. The fight sequences are far more violent thanthe existing series, and it's a good thing it's just a cartoon, becausein some of the fights, the cast would've actually been killed. Still,the idea that Eric would be evil is too much of a cliché for me. Iwould've liked it better if Eric had been a nephew of Drakkenreluctantly being misused for an evil plot against Kim, having to fightboth of them off, all the while explaining to Kim that he's nothinglike his mad uncle, and then broke up with her over her lifestyle andassociation with Ron. Now *that's* drama. Then again, perhaps that'sstepping too far into Aaron Spelling territory. Another thing it has isa great deal of background music -- so much so that when the closingtheme "Could it Be," by Christy Carlson Romano, was released in thefall of 2004, one would have the mistaken impression this was going tobe a musical, like the EVEN STEVENS episode "Influenza: The Musical."I've got a feeling she might've also secretly provided the voice of thelounge singer who sang "Someone for Me," at a resort owned by Big DaddyBrotherson, who appeared in the episode "Number One." Okay, so themovie is predictable, but it has a few surprises here and there.
This movie was intended to be the final episode, but sadly Disneyscrambled the last eleven or twelve episodes out of the order that MarkMcCorkle, Bob Schooley, and Steve Loter wanted. As a result, we saw newepisodes taking place AFTER "So the Drama" aired. Compare this to MTV,who while offering only half of a sixth season to Glenn Eichler forDARIA, forcing him to truncate the show with five, at least allowed himto use his story arc as he intended. On the other hand, while the DVDof IICY? was edited severely, the upcoming one of StD will be extended.Doesn't seem fair in either case, but for adventure, laughs and alittle bit of drama, this movie might be for you.
Dr. Drakken has an evil new plot for world domination, but his ultimate success depends upon finding out KP's weakness which may involve a new hottie at Middleton High School named Eric, who suddenly sparks feelings in Ron about Kim that resemble much more than friendship. To make matters worse, Bueno Nacho, Ron's favorite fast food chain has turned sour on him by bombarding him with little Devil diablo toys. Does this mean KP may finally have to surrender to Drakken once and for all?
