Not a bad spoof.

Problems in the Middle East? Forget it. Mayhem in China? Child's play. Russia? No need to meddle. It's time for Agent Cody Banks to go back to downtown Seattle. 17 years after this film sees him working his magic there, he is needed again in 2020 but that's a socio-political conversation for another post.

Not exactly breaking any new ground, this is a spy farce with entertaining action and a few witty spots. The kids enjoyed it to a degree ... especially the X-ray vision scene and the towel snap to some family jewels.

E.R.I.S. of the CIA has created the Agent Development Program, a summer camp for kids where they train potential recruits to take on world-destroying baddies ... through high school parties and first dates. Creepy: it's what the CIA do.

For high school kids though, there's a lot of revealing clothing and a tad bit of locker room innuendo. Creepy: it's what Hollywood do.

What can I say... It was a fun movie!

I especially loved the little humorous details here and there... like the page "Would the driver of a silver Austin Martin please report to..." inside the CIA building (James Bond's car), or Cody's cell phone that rings like Austin Powers video-phone. Pay attention when watching it as the movie is filled with little details and one liners referring to other spy movies.

I got the movie to watch with my granddaughters, The movie was a good show to watch with them but my complaint is that the movie would cut on and off and finally just went out all together .. Not sure what the problem was but would have liked to have seen the entire show.

fun movie...and Ian Mcshane!
Verified purchase
This is not high drama. Face it when you start out with a pint-size James Bond wanna-be out to save the world, you generally have only one direction to go...down and fast. I bought this film for one reason, Ian McShane...I will watch him in anything. But I did not have high hopes of really enjoying this movie.
However, I found I enjoyed the whole film, mainly because of the good back up crew of actors. McShane is superb and evil bad guy, Arnold Vosloo (the Mummy from The Mummy and Return of the Mummy) as his right hand enforcer, Angie Harmon as Bank's "handler" and Keith David (not David Keith mind you!) as the CIA director.
It light fun, yes, but great for the whole family to share. Not often, you find can find a film the family all will have fun sharing.

The trailer is not a true representation of the Movie...
Verified purchase
Buyer BEWARE...

The trailer shows "Full Screen" but when you play the Movie in it's entirety you'll find that it is in 4:3 format...That's right, the "Old Square T.V." version is how the movie is presented...

Hey Amazon, if your reading this how about a refund and for the false advertising I think I should also get a "Freebie!"

Great for Any Age
Verified purchase
Such a nice surprise! A "kid show" that's enjoyable for any age audience. Even though I'm an adult, I prefer lighthearted entertainment with a serious strand woven in. Agent Cody Banks delivered. This is a great show for instilling aspirations, goals, self-worth, and purpose into young minds and "normalizing" the super hero image we all grew up with.

I would give this movie 5 starts, except that we had to restart the movie numerous times, which made it a frustrating experience for my kids. The stated rental time is 24 hours, but Amazon only gave us about 19 hours.

The movie itself is good. My older child (middle schooler) likes this one better than the second one.
