    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    An entertaining film for kids and young teens. It's also a product of the era in which we're living, and weird times make for weird movies. show more

    As thrilling as the adventure sequences might be for kids, the better scenes take place on the high school campus. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    It's going to be a hit with libidinous boys, and their parents could do worse (see first review) than to watch the lavish, James Bondish gadgetry and cheerful anarchy of an action-adventure that's been made with all the finesse it needs, though not a jot more. show more

    Philadelphia Inquirer

    Written and directed on autopilot, containing every cliche endemic to these movies: clueless parents, bratty brother, nasty rich kids, pool fight, food fight, girls who can't drive. show more

    While Duff is fairly flavorless, Muniz proves that four seasons of "Malcolm" have made him a pro at navigating surreal silliness. Even when the script fails him, his well-honed instincts save the day. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    A high-speed, high-tech kiddie thriller that's kinda cute but sorta relentless. show more

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Of course, none of the film's geopolitical subterfuge will matter a whit to Agent Cody Banks's audience: adolescent boys in need of a surrogate hero. They will respond enthusiastically to this boisterous, well-carpentered kiddy-flick. show more

    With her low voice, jumpsuits, cleavage and Segway, Miles (Harmon) is all satire all the time, and we love her for that. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    The premise of Agent Cody Banks is more than a little bizarre. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    The repetitious script -- cobbled together by no fewer than five writers -- shows interest in nothing beyond action-centered plot gimmicks and tame romantic shenanigans. show more
