''Kim Possible Movie: So the Drama'' is a feature film based based on the animated series ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible''.

Kim is coming to the realization that her super hero life is keeping her from landing a steady boyfriend, and the closest thing she can get is Ron. That is, until a new guy shows up, Eric. They end up going out, and Kim plans on going to the prom with him, while Ron is left to deal with the new struggle of emotions he has found through Kim's new relationship. Meanwhile, Drakken has been plotting a diabolical plan, that goes beyond anything he's done previously.

Originally, this movie served as the [[GrandFinale series finale]], ending with Ron and Kim hooking up, [[SeriesFauxnale before the]] [[UnCanceled show was renewed]] [[PostScriptSeason for a fourth season]], where they defied StatusQuoIsGod by entering a relationship.
----
!!This movie provides examples of the following {{Tropes}}:
* AnimationBump
* BadLiar: When Ron was accidentally roped into a poker game, one of the other players caught on that he had bluffing tells: no eye contact, touching the face, shallow breath. Those same symptoms showed up again when Ron was telling Kim that he was okay with her dating Eric.
* BattleInTheRain: The final fight scene was fought while raining.
* BigDamnKiss: Kim and Ron's FirstKiss at the end of the movie.
* BookEnds: A lot of the plot points in ''So The Drama'' echo the first aired episode ("Crush").
* BroadStrokes: At a Q&A fans asked the creators questions about ''[[TheMovie So The Drama]]'' asking why [[AlphaBitch Bonnie]] wasn't portrayed more sympathetically after "Bonded", and why Kim is objecting to the idea of taking Ron to the Prom because of "The Rules" after saying that there were no rules in "Grudge Match". They responded that the movie was originally written as a cap to the first season in the event they didn't get any more episodes, and made very few changes to the script so as to welcome new viewers and prevent ContinuityLockOut.
* ChekhovsArmory: All the "experiments" in Drakkhen's lair play a larger role at various points in the movie. The most important of it all being [[spoiler:Drakkhen researching the "teen scene".]]
* CompletelyUnnecessaryTranslator: Miss Kyoko for Nakasumi. Who wouldn't want to whisper to a pretty girl all the time?
* DanceOfRomance: The final scene of the movie where Kim and Ron dance to "Could It Be", leading up to their FirstKiss. {{Fandom}} also considers it a ConvenientSlowDance as Kim and Ron just happened to be dancing to a song that fit the circumstances.
* DarkerAndEdgier: As the name of the movie implies, it is much more dramatic and action-packed than the original series. Not to mention it contains the first instance where a character is KilledOffForReal.
* DespairEventHorizon: Kim comes close to crossing it after [[spoiler:she realizes how Eric played her]], until Ron talks her down from it.
* DistressedDude: Brutally subverted with [[spoiler:Eric]].
* DisneyVillainDeath: The [[WhatCouldHaveBeen original version of the climax]] had Shego killed off. By Kim. In response to a verbal taunt. About something that was entirely Drakken's doing. After the heroes had already won and Shego was [[VillainExitStageLeft trying to flee the scene]]. Instead of being treated as a CrowningMomentOfAwesome or KickTheSonOfABitch, test audiences were horrified, so the scene is still in there but a scene was added showing that Shego survived [[MadeOfIron being kicked into a building, electrocuted, and the building collapsing on top of her.]]
* DontSaySuchStupidThings[=/=]HeyThatsMyLine: After [[spoiler:Eric is revealed to be a synthodrone and captures Kim and Ron]], Kim [[TenMinuteRetirement despairs]] and Ron tries to bring her around:
-->'''Ron''': So, what's the plan?\\
'''Kim''': ''(Devastated)'' Ron, I... I got nothin'.\\
'''Ron''': That's ''my'' line, and what's worse, that's quitter talk!\\
'''Kim''': Drakken finally won. I should have [[RefusalOfTheCall stuck to baby-sitting]].\\
'''Ron''': Okay, KP, this pity fiesta is over. Drakken has ''not'' won. He played you. Now it's payback time.
* DressHitsFloor: Well, a wetsuit. Pretty hot for Disney.
* EleventhHourSuperpower: Kim's battlesuit. When the show was UnCanceled, the writers had to find reasons to [[HoldingBackThePhlebotinum minimize]] [[StoryBreakerPower Kim's use of the suit]].
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In addition to the 'wetsuit falling to the ground' part mentioned above, there was a scene where Kim and Monique were in changing rooms and clearly topless. Definitely one of the most mature moments in Disney Channel Original Movie history.
* HeadbuttOfLove: Kim and Ron do this at the prom just before their BigDamnKiss.
* IDontWantToRuinOurFriendship: One of the reasons Ron originally decides not to go through with telling Kim about his feelings for her was the fear that if she rejected him, it would destroy their friendship. In the end, he decides to anyway.
* [[IHaveYourWife I Have Your Boyfriend]]: Dr. Drakken uses Eric as a hostage to lure Kim into a trap [[spoiler:which is sprung when Eric reveals his true nature and tasers her]].
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Initially, Ron decides to let Kim go and be happy with Erik. He decides to confess his feelings [[spoiler:after Erik's true colors are revealed]].
* ItsPersonal: Ron ''really'' doesn't like when you mess with Bueno Nacho as Drakken finds out at the end of the movie.
-->'''Drakken''': You can't be serious\\
'''Ron''': Note ''serious face''.
** Also, the exchange leading up to the DisneyVillainDeath moment described above:
-->'''Kim:''' [[IronicEcho You know what I really hate?]]\\
'''Shego:''' That your date melted?\\
'''Kim:''' Nah. ''You''.\\
''(Kim kicks Shego off the roof into the signal tower)''
* KeystoneArmy: [[spoiler:Neutralizing Drakken's broadcast tower causes the Diablos to revert into harmless toy form.]]
* KillerDoll: The Li'l Diablos.
* KindaBusyHere: The opening scene features Team Possible thwarting Shego's attempt to kidnap Nakasumi. During the action, Kim takes a call from Monique and exchanges some school gossip.
* LoveEpiphany: Happens for both Kim and Ron. Whilst Ron's is hard to pinpoint exactly, his [[GreenEyedMonster jealousy]] over Kim and Eric is very apparent. Kim's occurs towards the end, when, after [[TenMinuteRetirement feeling defeated and broken]] over being tricked by Drakken, as well as the possibility that [[NoGuyWantsAnAmazon she'll never find the right guy for her]], Ron comes clean.
-->'''Kim:''' You really think there's a guy out there for me?\\
'''Ron:''' Out there... in here...\\
'''Kim:''' ''(realizing what he's saying)'' O-Oh... ''Really''?
* MindProbe: Drakken develops a Brain Tap Machine that he planned to use on Nakasumi to get a toy design, but was unable to because Shego failed to capture him (but thanks to her [[GivingThemTheStrip getting his coat]], he still got one). However, he got a second chance to use it when he captured Dr. Possible for his Hephaestus Project knowledge. Unlike his previous mind reading devices, this one worked, with the added effect of giving James short term memory loss.
* MookMaker: Drakken apparently developed technology that enabled him to make synthetic minions called synthodrones. [[spoiler:This turned out to be a ChekhovsGun when he used it to create Eric]].
* MyWayOrTheHighway: Big Daddy Brotherson makes it clear to Drakken that if he wants information, he'll have to play his 'silly games'.
* NearVillainVictory[=/=]NotSoHarmlessVillain: Drakken gets much closer to his goal of [[TakeOverTheWorld global domination]] than he ever did before, or ever [[PostScriptSeason would again]].
* OfficialCouple: Kim and Ron, from ''So The Drama'' onward. WordOfGod is they were planned from the start, [[JustFriends which is unsurprising]].
** WordOfGod goes on to further state that if there were any doubts, their relationship from "Graduation" onwards will indeed continue and flourish and that they will be together forever.
* OhWaitThisIsMyGroceryList: When Drakken goes to Big Daddy Brotherson for information on the cybertronic tech he needs for his scheme, he's forced to play his 'silly games'. Afterwards, he ends up with what he thinks is a top secret code, but is really this. However, Brotherson gives him the real information he needs.
* OpenTheIris: Kim's eyes go wide and liquid with betrayal as Eric reveals he's not really her boyfriend, then they go tiny in pain as she's tasered.
* RelationshipRevolvingDoor: Bonnie and Brick. As Kim put it:
-->"How many times can two people break up and get back together?"
* RelationshipUpgrade: Kim and Ron. Carries over to the PostScriptSeason.
* RidiculouslyHumanRobots: [[spoiler:Eric (aka Synthodrone #901)]].
* [[spoiler:RoboticReveal: "Actually here, I'm known as Synthodrone #901"]].
* RomanticFalseLead: Eric; [[spoiler:Drakken WEAPONIZED the trope!]]
* SayMyName: Ron to Drakken. Kim's arrival usually makes Drakken exclaim "Kim Possible!"
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Lars, Drakken's goon, yells really high pitched when he sees a Diablo robot coming at him.
* SealedWithAKiss: Kim and Ron, originally and ''again'' in the [[StockSeriesFinales second finale of the series]].
* SeriesFauxnale
* ShoutOut:
** In the ActionPrologue, the way the front giant claw of Shego's plane accidentally trapping the balloon strings is similar to how [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hUqGwnAolSs Batman used his Batwing to cut away Joker's balloons]] in [[{{Film/Batman}} the 1989 movie]].
** The art style and the music of the opening credits are also tributes to the [[Film/JamesBond Bond movie openings]].
* SpyTuxReveal: After swimming ashore to Brotherson's lair, Ron strips off his scuba outfit to reveal a suit. It's not clear whether Kim does likewise or simply changes clothes while Ron looks away.
* TenMinuteRetirement: After [[spoiler:Eric (Synthodron #901) reveals his true nature and captures her]], Kim gives up, until Ron snaps her out of it by declaring his feelings for her.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: In-universe example; Bueno Nacho goes under new management (courtesy of Dr. Drakken), and Ron gets upset over every change made to the restaurant. His NostalgiaFilter especially reaches its limit when the bending straws are gone.
** Well, at least Drakken keeps it operational. Shego ''destroyed it'' in "A Sitch In Time".
* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: The first promo for the movie gave away the scene with Kim and Ron dancing at the prom at the end of the film.
* TransformingMecha: The Li'l Diablos, when Drakken triggers them.
* UnspokenPlanGuarantee: Dr. Drakken keeps Shego in the dark about his plan to test whether it's clever enough to finally defeat Kim.
-->'''Drakken:''' If you can't figure it out, she can't figure it out. And that means...\\
'''Shego:''' ''(impressed)'' ...You just might win.
* WeaksauceWeakness: One good puncture can drain the goo out of a synthodrone, destroying it.
* WhamLine:
-->[[spoiler:'''Kim:''' Eric. ''(hugs him)'']]\\
[[spoiler:'''Eric:''' [[TheReveal Actually, here, I'm known as Synthodrone Number 901]].]]\\
[[spoiler:'''Kim:''' ''(OhCrap face)'']]
* WhenTheClockStrikesTwelve: Except for in Middleton, Drakken launches his Diablo army at the stroke of midnight.
** [[spoiler: That means that Kim and Ron's first date occurred sometime around one in the morning. How long do prom dances last?]].
* WideEyesAndShrunkenIrises: Kim does this when she realizes the true nature of [[spoiler:Eric (Synthodron #901), just before he tasers her.]]
* XanatosGambit: Drakken pulled two of these in the movie. First, when he kidnapped Kim's father to lure her into a trap, it wouldn't have mattered if they escaped as he already got the cybertronic technology he needed from James' brain. The second one was to activate the Diablos in Middleton to distract Kim while Shego went to the prom and [[spoiler:pretend to]] capture Eric, [[spoiler: then have Eric taser her in case Shego lost.]]
* YouHaveFailedMe: Subverted. Drakken [[TrapDoor drops Shego]] into a squad of attacking synthodrones after she returns without capturing Nakasumi. It turns out that he's just conducting a test of their combat ability and being a bit [[JerkAss obnoxious]].
-->'''Shego:''' Okay, sport. Why are you all, ''(imitates Drakken's voice)'' "You have failed me for the last time!" Are you kidding me with that?
