Movie Info

Fifteen-year-old CIA operative Cody Banks (played by Malcolm in the Middle star Frankie Muniz) is back in action in this comedy adventure, which sends the youthful secret agent to Old Blighty. Banks returns to Kamp Woody, the CIA training center disguised as a summer camp, where he's given a new partner, the bumbling but sharp-witted Derek (Anthony Anderson), and a new assignment, to track down a sinister double-agent who has made off with an experimental mind-control machine. The villain has

Really pretty hateful, shooting for the bulk of its laughs at the expense of those wacky foreign kids and the endlessly humiliated Anthony Anderson.

... tedious, forgettable and wholly unnecessary.

Kids should be reasonably diverted for a couple of hours, but odds are they'll have forgotten the whole thing by the next morning.

Here's just about everything a 6-year-old spy would hope to find in a kiddie-espionage flick, with just a twinge of romance, but nothing serious to interrupt Cody's undoubtedly continuing career.

Kids may well find the film diverting, but there's just not a lot of creativity or energy here.

The same young teens who cozied up to the first picture will probably enjoy the sequel, but it won't win many new fans.

Moderately cute action comedy for young tweens.

You may be surprised at how not torturous [the film is].

The sequel's a caricatured and clichéd yawner. And the tone is all wrong.

August 13, 2004

Muniz manages to retain his wide-eyed, harried charm, but the film is really a shameful disservice to both him and the family audience which will no doubt turn out in droves to see it.

The only good I sense coming from this Cody Banks film is that it's so bad, we probably won't be seeing any more of them. Call me an optimistic; I live in hope.

A contender for worst film of the year.

There's less charm here than in the original, less self deprecating humour, and more attempts at over-the-top humour that just don't work.

The racial stereotypes trotted out here suggest the scriptwriters reckon Europe and the world is some kind of long-haul Middle Earth for US audiences.

It's harmless, albeit cliché riddled, fun for youngsters, and it doesn't make grown-ups wish they had two hours of their life back.

San Francisco Examiner

The original was a kid-friendly film, but the sequel turns the youngsters into jokes.

There's no way your own children deserve something as lifeless and hollow as Agent Cody Banks 2. Unless they're misbehaving really bad, I guess.

March 30, 2004 Full Review Source:

Lazy, smug and completely self-satisfied, this half-hearted sequel to Agent Cody Banks swaps Sean Connery suavity for Roger Moore stupidity.

March 30, 2004 Full Review Source: BBC

A ho-hum piece of junk.

Bangor Daily News (Maine)

This is one of those movies that's full of color and almost non-stop action, both of which seem to be an attempt to cover up a woeful lack of plot.

Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

When the high point of your movie involves a Queen Elizabeth lookalike getting down to a Euro-pop version of Edwin Starr's 'War,' something has gone disastrously wrong.

It is credited to three writers, which stuns me, because I know plenty of writers who could have written something this bad single-handedly.

London's calling for CIA Agent Cody Banks (Frankie Muniz), but I wish it were his mom telling him to go to his room.

March 18, 2004 Full Review Source: Boulder Weekly

In order for the plot to work, all the characters have to be idiots.

Harmless fare, but as bland as an unsalted water cracker.
