AGENT CODY BANKS (Theatrical Release USA 2003)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì

Agent Cody Banks—works as a teen flick and not much else—shows Frankie Muniz at the point in his career where he is just getting the experience that launches his career. While Frankie Muniz and Hilary Duff are well casted, the film itself comes across as subpar and unrealistic. The movie is what it is for the audience it was meant to serve.

Storyline

A spy mission needs a young agent to complete its agenda and chooses Cody Banks for training.
