September 6, 2003
A formulaic Hollywood 'crowd-pleaser' that can be summed up in three words ('Teenage James Bond!').

Too violent for children and too recycled for adults.

A bland and condescending adaptation of an adult action film for a younger audience.

The movie will be compared with the two Spy Kids pictures, and looks more expensive and high-tech but isn't as much fun.

Agent Cody Banks has a TV movie feel to it. The special effects are kind of hokey, the jokes pretty lame and the stunts looked like they're performed by stunt performers.

Dedicated to helping kids make a transition, smoothing the way between Boy's Life readers and Maxim readers.

Unfortunately for Agent Cody Banks, someone already made a movie about spy kids, and it was called 'Spy Kids.'

There's nothing really wrong with Agent Cody Banks. Parents will find it a harmless and reasonably efficient time-killer, I suppose. But it's unimaginative and passionless.

Although director Harald Zwart does fortify this intentionally cheesy high-tech showcase with a sledgehammer of energetic flair and silliness, his juiced-up narrative cannot overcome the inevitable comparisons to the far superior Spy Kids flicks.

The film is cute but never much beyond that.

It's as though for every good idea the movie has, someone from the writing committee jumped in and said, 'Yeah, but let's put a fart joke right after that.'

Strives to be a James Bond spoof but fails to find its niche.

March 14, 2003
This juvenile take on the James Bond films feels more like a heavily watered-down vodka martini than a genuine offering for kids.

Uninspired and unabashed rip-off of Spy Kids.

Se você quer conhecer jovens espiões que realmente mereçam sua atenção, as melhores opções ainda são os dois Pequenos Espiões e o tenso Os Heróis Não Têm Idade.

...Cody Banks is a little older than the Spy Kids and, consequently, more into the girl thing. I'm not sure it improves the picture.

Dreadful, witless and pointless.

March 14, 2003
This movie is so wearying in its mediocrity, the inappropriate Ronica almost registers as dramatic relief. I said almost.
March 14, 2003
[Muniz] keeps Cody Banks watchable on energy alone but his scenes with the pallid, uncharismatic Duff are as dull as watching two actual pubescents meet at the mall.
