    What a wonderful childrens movie! Unlike The Bourne Spy 2, this is a veritable cornocopia of great action and intense suspense! All Children Rated, too! So your kids can learn the great cinematic movies before long! You'll HOWUL with delite as Agent Cody Banks goes through great missions! The only problem with this movie is that Hillary Duff, so wonderful in the last movie, What a wonderful childrens movie!

But not to dispair, it still has Frankie Muniz, one of the best actors we have around! I can't wait for number 3! Truly Living A Boy's Adventure Tale! Expand

    At bottom, there's just too much spy in young Cody, and too little kid. The writers might've taken (another) page from the ''Spy Kids'' playbook and infused the action with youth relevance.
  2. Given the great premise and characters inherited from the first film, it's surprising that this sequel fails to match its predecessor's appeal. The humor is silly, broad, and surprisingly generic.

    Muniz has a great face and body for physical comedy, but the numerous one-liners shoehorned into the script fall flat, unassisted by Anderson's numbing “street” ad-libs.
