Cody's living every boy's dream life - he can drive like a stuntman, has an incredible arsenal of cool gadgets, and his agency mentor, Ronica Miles, is totally hot. But Cody's training is put to the test when he's sent to pose as a prep school student and befriend fellow teen Natalie Connors in order to gain access to her father, a scientist unknowingly developing a fleet of deadly nanobots for the evil organization ERIS. From runaway cars and high-speed snowboard chases to a spectacular final mountaintop showdown, Cody has to use everything he's learned to prove himself as an agent and stop ERIS... and maybe even get the girl.

Cody Banks is your average everyday kid from Seattle, Washington who just happens to have been recruited by the CIA. His assignment is to get close to.....a girl. And from the trailors you can tell that Cody has a hard time talking to girls.
Think of this movie as a cross between James Bond & Spy Kids - it's kind of in the middle so pre-teens & teens will enjoy it. Frankie Muniz and Hilary Duff did an excellent job acting!
If your kids enjoy watching Lizzie McGuire and Malcolm in the Middle and Big Fat Liar then they and you won't be disappointed in this movie! I can't give the plot away or why Cody Banks needs to get close to "the girl" but you'll figure it out and if you see the movie you'll enjoy it. Go out and enjoy it together!
First of all, this isn't a Spy Kids rip-off. I would classify it more as a "James-Bond-for-the-preteen-crowd" movie. It's been written to be fun, yet somewhat suspenseful (again, if you are a preteen) but never takes itself too seriously. What makes this movie fun for adults is the supporting cast. Let's face it, Frankie Muniz and Hillary Duff basically play their Malcolm and Lizzie characters here. No attempt at stretching their roles. I'm sure that's what the parts were written for them to do. However, Angie Harmon as the "CIA Handler" plays her part well, and is downright a pleasure to look at. You have to wonder, though, how many takes it took of Frankie falling face first onto her cleavage for him to get it right. Ian McShane playes a great evil genus, an of course Arnold Voolos (of "The Mummy" fame) steals just about every scene he's in.
Things in this movie that were not so good: The music was too loud at times, taking your attention away from what was going on up on the screen, The special effects were average, and the plot was kind of silly at times. But what do you expect from a movie for the Disney/Nickelodeon crowd.
So, overall, this movie is enjoyable. It's not something I would watch again (although my kids would, even my 15 year old). I would recommend it as a good family film
More importantly, my kids and the others in the audience really enjoyed it. Based on audience reactions, I think the most popular age group will be 7-14. It is very well cast and performed (except Hillary Duff who has very few lines in the movie and manages to be Lizzy all over again); Frankie Muniz does an excellent job. Script is excellent. The inevitable sexual references are tasteful and kept to a minimum. No graphic violence or language. No really gross or off-color jokes. Only one visually disturbing moment at the end where the camera cuts to a few seconds of the villian's gruesome death. Frankie Muniz character has positive values. The CIA is shown in a very positive light (no liberal political correctness, thank you very much).
Overall a great family movie!
