The Bond films never feel dated, and neither does Agent Cody Banks. It still plays well, and for that credit the special effects that compare favorably to today's films and the fact that high school never seems to change.

Muniz and Duff seem to be two perfectly normal teenagers thrown in the midst of an elaborate fantasy, and they pull it off beautifully.

Zwart pulls out enough stops in action sequences involving jet-propelled skateboards, stunt drives and mountain rescues to keep the ball rolling nicely.

An enjoyable kid spy spoof with likeable characters.

Muniz is an extremely likeable actor and the fact that Banks is meant to be pathologically shy around girls offers a handy point of identification for its target audience.

Never quite as funny as it could have been, Agent Cody Banks is nevertheless far too genial to dislike.

Has a surprisingly grown-up feel to it ... which makes it more entertaining for everyone watching.

When [Muniz's] Cody gets close to a girl, there is an eager terror on his face and in his body language that hits the adolescence angst nail squarely on the head.

There's just something about Muniz. He's so gosh darn cute with those big, blue, sincere eyes.

In this generation of family-friendly secret agents, Cody Banks is agreeably entertaining, better than the first Spy Kids, not as good as the second and not nearly as clever as Cats & Dogs.

A painless hour and a half.

Unlike last year's unimaginative and boring Big Fat Liar, Cody Banks is enjoyable and clever.

While lacking the zip and imagination of Robert Rodriguez's Spy Kids movies, Cody Banks is an amiable enough mixture of James Bond-lite adventure and chaste teenage romance.
