It's my favorite movie. That is saying alot considering the amount of movies I've watched. My 7 and 10 year old don't always want to watch it with me anymore. I gave it a 9 though, there were things that could have been improved but I don't like to dwell on them, I like my fantasy world too much to dis it.
I loved this movie, and give it a 10 for a number of reasons:
1) The gorgeous step up in the quality of the animation. Though from the years of being a Futurama (which was animated by the same company that animated "So the Drama") fanboy I could instantly tell the Diablos were 3D, as per Rough Draft's form, the 3D was flawlessly integrated into the 2D and didn't distract at all. The movie was gorgeous, from start to finish.
2) The emotional resonance of the story. The whole theme of everything changing and not being able to do jack crap about it just brought back memories from when I graduated high school. It really hit home. And when Eric turned out to be a synthodrone - it didn't matter if I saw it coming from about two miles away, it still was punch in the gut nonetheless.
3) Drakken's plot was not only extremely complex for a made-for-TV animated movie, it was actually COMPETENT. Yes, I, too, was shocked beyond belief. I definitely did not expect Drakken to have a competent plot.
4) The fight scenes. While, yes, I do believe they maybe rushed the ending a bit, and would've liked to have seen more of the big Kim vs. Shego finale fight (as I have to say, being a Kigo shipper), the fight scenes were jaw-dropping nontheless. And I've seen a buttload of some utterly jaw-dropping fight scenes from watching many an anime, so the fact that the fight scenes in "So the Drama" still awed me was a feat within itself.
5) The music. I'll say this, and I'll say this again: I MUST have a CD of every one of Adam Berry's scores - for KP, Buzz Lightyear, and anything else he's done. The music in the movie, as always, was fantastic. I'd say the highlight was when the Diablos started marching out of the Bueno Nacho for the first time. When that choir started up, I was sitting at home squealing "I love this score!"
And last, the performances. All I can say is this: All the VAs did an awesome job.
And I'd like to complain about one thing: Rating a movie because you didn't get enough moments to satisfy your shipper preferences or because you hate an actor is not the way to review a movie. I could drop my rating down to 4 because there wasn't enough Kigo moments for me, but I'm not gonna do that. Lesbian subtext was not the goal of the movie. Little moments to make a certain group of shippers squeal with delight was not the goal of the movie. The movie was made to entertain and bring a satisfying conclusion to the series - with, of course, room to pursue more episodes should it get renewed. And achieve that goal it did. If KP isn't renewed, then I strongly await Bob Schooley and Mark McCorkle's next project (and/or projects). Kudos to a great movie with "So the Drama," and for letting Kim Possible into all of our lives.

I loved the movie I give it a 10 the animation was just excellent and Ron fighting was awesome plus I loved Kim and Ron's kiss in the end. Draken's plan was awesome too. I wouldn't say his plan was more complex than Vlad's plan is from Danny Phantom but for once Draken made me proud lol. So yes one of the best Kim Possible movies ever.
