    Predictable and juts like the first one, Cody Banks numero dos is even worst than the original (no surprise).What it lacks is a steady premise, and it seems like there is nary one to be found. Just because it's new doesn't mean its good. Full Review »

    Stands as one of the worst family films ever made.

    If you liked the original, you'll probably like this one, yada yada yada. A few brief observations: the flood of product placements (excessive even for a 2004 major studio film!) is surpassed only by a surfeit of continuity flubs and self-contradictions. One example: the exploding Mentos (see what I mean about product placement?) that blow up when chewed; in one sequence, one of the good guys attempts to dilute their effect--BY CUTTING THEM UP??? I loved the little actress who played the Indian music student, and the wonderful, tremendously underrated comic actress Cynthia Stevenson, whose role as Cody's clueless mom is limited here to the first and last few minutes of the movie, illustrates once again that old saying about silk purses and sow's ears.
