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}

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.

Quotes

CIA Director: [talking to the other agents] We spent 10 million dollars training this kid; and we did not teach him how to talk to a girl?

just a kids movie
27 September 2003 | by gonzogm999See all my reviews

This is an okay kids' movie; but as college students who often enjoy kids' movies we did not enjoy it. The most irritating thing about this movie for me is that near the beginning of the movie he was 16 and getting his driver's license, and later in the movie he was 15. The entire movie was full of inconsistencies and overall annoying if you cannot stop thinking while watching a movie. We liked Hilary Duff's role, and the plot line on the romance was cute. Frankie and Hilary's chemistry was the best part of the movie.
