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

The ring tone when Cody is called at the end of the movie is the same as "In Like Flint". See more »

Goofs

The CIA has been lead to believe that Cody Banks is a ladies man, because of stories he told at the CIA's training facility/summer camp. Did the CIA only recruit boys for the program? Otherwise, there would have been girls present at the summer camp (instantly disproving Cody's claims about being a ladies man). See more »

Quotes

Cody Banks: What was my mission again?
Natalie Connors: I think you were going to kiss me.

I know it is suppose to be funny and cute, but it isn't
21 May 2004 | by udeaasykleSee all my reviews

I pretty much knew what i was in for when i started seeing this movie. It is suppose to be funny and cute, but it isn't. It is cheesy and stinks of bad dialog and the world's most crappy plot. Yeah i know the movie is probably more suitable for kids but this i just my opinion. The fight scenes with "cody" sucks and let me tell you why. It is soooo obvious that they used a stunt double who is about a foot higher and wider and an adult to be honest. The second thing i noticed is when he is fighting in Natalie's "birthday" party where there is, by the way, blackjack and dice games. Way to parent your 15 year old daughter. I wish i could go to a "we will frisk you before you can come in" party when i was 15. After the fight, Francois Molay, the henchman manage to say something like: That guy is an agent cause he had to learn those moves in the CIA. Yeah, cause no one but the CIA fights with kicks and punches.... If you are about 12-18 you will probably like this movie but i don't. I rate this movie 3/10
