With all-new gadgets, high-flying action, exciting chases and a wisecracking new handler, Derek (Anthony Anderson), Cody has to retrieve the device before the world's leaders fall under the evil control of a diabolical villain.
Max Keeble is a nice, quiet teenager, whose idea of 'superhero-requiring' danger is braving Evil Ice Cream Man who blames him for a health complaint from ma Lily. She spent six years on just the right interior and now hears from dad Don Keeble, a wimp whose 'career' in commercial publicity still only got him wearing sly costumes, a promotion requires the family to move to Chicago. Initially Max just hates giving up his high-school friends, a fatso and a music-maniac, but when their former friend Troy McGinty picks on them with his new image as bully realizes leaving means he can't be punished after Friday, and plans an orgy of revenge. Max's targets include the arrogant new principal, Elliot T. Jindraike, who spends the school budget on a new sports stadium to flatter the inspector, Superintendant Bobby 'Crazy Legs' Knebworth, and even plants to tear down the animal shelter. When it's all in motion, dad suddenly announces he has taken Max's first advice and turned down the promotion!Written by
In Max's flashback about how the bullies were plaguing the school, there was a brief scene where Megan tells Dobbs that she keeps her money in a piggy bank that "looks just like you." This was left over from a deleted scene where Dobbs tries to get Megan to give him her lunch money, but then she refuses (by sarcastically telling him the above line), which then results in him stealing her clarinet from the locker as retaliation.

In the beginning, during Max's dream when the Evil Ice Cream Man shoots Tony Hawk with ice cream, he says, "Mmm! A Tony Hawk sundae!", but his lips stopped moving before "sundae" (01:33). See more »
I pound on kids. That's what I do, that's what I do! You know what they call me up there?
[the school nurse nods her head no]
[Troy then sobs]
Troy, easy. Now, I'd like to take you through a childhood regression process. It may bring up some unpleasant memories... but I think you'll find it helpful in the end. All righty?
[reveals Troy the MacGoogles doll]
Now, give Mr. MacGoogles a hug.
Aah! Aah! He's gonna eat me!
[then sobs again]
We've got some work ...

This movie had a lot of laughs for a younger audience, and was entertaining. The young actors including Alex D. Linz and Zena Grey weren't bad. The movie wasn't boring, and kept the story moving along rather well. This movie is a good one for around eight year olds- ten year olds, or maybe eleven. I give Max Keeble's Big Move a 7 out of 10. :)
