Fifteen-year-old CIA operative Cody Banks (played by Malcolm in the Middle star Frankie Muniz) is back in action in this comedy adventure, which sends the youthful secret agent to Old Blighty. Banks returns to Kamp Woody, the CIA training center disguised as a summer camp, where he's given a new partner, the bumbling but sharp-witted Derek (Anthony Anderson), and a new assignment, to track down a sinister double-agent who has made off with an experimental mind-control machine.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Really pretty hateful, shooting for the bulk of its laughs at the expense of those wacky foreign kids and the endlessly humiliated Anthony Anderson."
‑ Ben Kenigsberg, Village Voice
"Here's just about everything a 6-year-old spy would hope to find in a kiddie-espionage flick, with just a twinge of romance, but nothing serious to interrupt Cody's undoubtedly continuing career."
‑ Susan Walker, Toronto Star
"Moderately cute action comedy for young tweens."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Muniz manages to retain his wide-eyed, harried charm, but the film is really a shameful disservice to both him and the family audience which will no doubt turn out in droves to see it."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"There's less charm here than in the original, less self deprecating humour, and more attempts at over-the-top humour that just don't work."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
"... tedious, forgettable and wholly unnecessary."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Kids may well find the film diverting, but there's just not a lot of creativity or energy here."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"You may be surprised at how not torturous [the film is]."
‑ Anthony Del Valle, Las Vegas Mercury
"The only good I sense coming from this Cody Banks film is that it's so bad, we probably won't be seeing any more of them. Call me an optimistic; I live in hope."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"The racial stereotypes trotted out here suggest the scriptwriters reckon Europe and the world is some kind of long-haul Middle Earth for US audiences."
‑ Harry Guerin, RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
"Kids should be reasonably diverted for a couple of hours, but odds are they'll have forgotten the whole thing by the next morning."
‑ Dan Via, Washington Post
"The same young teens who cozied up to the first picture will probably enjoy the sequel, but it won't win many new fans."
‑ Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle
"The sequel's a caricatured and clichéd yawner. And the tone is all wrong."
‑ James Plath,
"A contender for worst film of the year."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"It's harmless, albeit cliché riddled, fun for youngsters, and it doesn't make grown-ups wish they had two hours of their life back."
‑ Edith Alderette, San Francisco Examiner
