  • Geat episode!

    In this episode Drake and Josh are at The Premiere Movie Theater. After they see a movie Josh meets a guy who works there named Crazy Steve. Josh tells Crazy Steve that there is a cup holder loose. Crazy Steve gets all fed up on the nitpick and quits. He hands his red vest to Josh and people starts asking him questions. Helen the owner of the movie theater comes over and decides to hire Josh. The next day Josh tells Drake that he got paid and bought all kinds of awesome gadgets with his work money. Drake soon decides to get a job instead of just selling Josh's stuff. On the first day of being work buddies Josh is a reliable worker while Drake is quite the opposite. Josh helps Drake with his work but Helen believes Drake did his work well and Josh didn't. Soon Helen thinks Drake such a reliable worker that he becomes promoted to assistant manager. Josh wanted the job as assistant manager so he decides to impress Helen. He does this by storing golden balls into 10 lucky buckets of popcorn. Any moviegoer who finds one will win free movies for a month. Everyone fights over the golden balls and they all get hurt. So the medics had to come and bring everyone to the hospital. Helen is extremely angry about the whole popcorn idea so she sentences Josh to her office. Josh decides to admit the truth and tell her it was his idea, but then Drake jumps in and said it was his idea. Then Drake gets fired and goes home. Drake tells Josh that he took the blame because Josh loved working there more than him. So he decided to go back to selling Josh's possessions. Great episode watch it =)

  • Josh gets a job at a movie theater because of his knowledge of movies & Drake gets a job there too. Josh works hard & Drake slacks off. Drake becomes assistent manager & Josh is mad. Josh has a plan that doesn't go right & Drake takes the blame for Josh.moreless

    This was a really great episode! It was another one of those episodes that shows how great of a guy Drake can really be. I thought it was so sweet when Drake took the blame for what Josh did, just so Josh could keep his job at The Premiere Movie Theater. But, this episode also shows how mad Josh can get at his brother for just being himself. That's how Drake is, and something tells me that Drake really can't help it. This episode was great and entertaining! It made me want to keep watching so I could see what happens next! It earns a 9.7 out of 10 from me!moreless

  • Joshe gets a movie theater job!!!!!

    Josh and Drake both get a job at the movie theater. Josh does a bunch of work, but Drake slacks off and gets all the credit. When Drake becomes Josh's boss, Josh is fed up, because he was doing all of Drake's work for him. This episode never disappointed at all because of its great humor. This episode is very important for one major reason it introduces a character that will one day be big in this show, Helen. My favorite part was when there was a riot to find the golden balls inside of the popcorn containers. In the end I thought that it was very nice of Drake to take the hit for Josh.moreless
