Moderately cute action comedy for young tweens.

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.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

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.

The menu of Saturday daytime entertainment is served a bit more sharply than by the last Spy Kids romp.

With lots of cool gadgets, plenty of silliness and a clever concept guaranteed to appeal to preteens, this should be an unflagging, high-octane romp.

Critics expending a lot of energy on how bad [it] supposedly is need to take a deep breath. We're not the target audience for this silly... spy movie [for] the preteen set.

Director Kevin Allen, who has more acting than directing credits under his belt, does an admirable job of keeping the pace fast enough that kids are entertained and parents aren't checking their watches every five minutes.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Muniz's considerable charm keeps things moving along briskly, and there's more than enough here to keep pic's target audience engaged.

The sequel's a caricatured and clichéd yawner. And the tone is all wrong.
| Original Score: 5/10

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.
