Storyline

A government agent trains a typical teenager Cody Banks who loves to skateboard, hates math, and feels like a complete idiot around girls, in the ways of covert operations that require younger participants. But Cody's got a secret--he's actually part of a secret teen CIA program. Cody's living every boy's dream life--he can drive like a stunt man, 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 pair of twisted villains called the nanobots for the evil organization ERIS, which can destroy any carbon or silicon-based substance-to destroy the world's defense systems so he can threaten anyone who opposes him. From runaway cars and high-speed snowboard chases to a spectacular final mountaintop showdown, Cody has to use ... Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Did You Know?

Trivia

(at around 24 mins) The scene where a girl asks Cody if he is in special placement received heavy backlash from moviegoers, as they felt it was insensitive. An insert in the DVD release apologized for the joke. See more »

Goofs

It is said Cody can't even talk to a simulated woman and when he tries to talk to a real girl he starts to stammer or clams up i.e can't say a word and they make a big thing of it (bringing in all sorts of specialist advisers to help Cody) but since their first meeting he never had that problem talking to his handler, female agent Ronica Miles.

Great family movie...surprisingly funny!!
14 March 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

When I took my kids out to see "Agent Cody Banks", I fully expected to be bored and go away hoping that at least the children enjoyed it... boy, was I surprised! Frankie Muniz played a great secret agent, and Hillary Duff was a cute rich girl. I thought it was really funny and full of action, and my kids thought it was "really cool!" Although it did go a little Spy Kids for awhile, all in all it was far superior. I thought it was much more creative. It's a cute family flick...a little bit Spy Kids a little bit James Bond, but fun for the whole family. (Even my teen enjoyed it!) I think this movie will be on every kid's top ten for awhile to come...as for me, I'll be waiting for a sequel.
