Storyline

One year later, agent Cody Banks is back for another awesome adventure but this time he must track down a former instructor who's gone rogue with a mind-control microchip. Banks masquerades as a musical prodigy to get close to a snobby, egocentric scientist in London who's the only person who can make the microchip work. Along the way Banks hooks up with a demoted agent and a cute-as-a-bug Scotland Yard operative. When Agent Cody Banks heads to England to catch an evil scientist who's stolen a mind-control device for his plot to rule the world and turning the world leaders into zombies!

Trivia

Agent Cody Banks (2003) director Harald Zwart quit after disagreeing with the studio over the amount of budget allocated to the film (only $1 million more than the first film). Zwart wanted to use a lot of CGI effects which would have brought the budget up to about $30 million, a figure that MGM deemed to be too high. See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 18 mins) After Cody tells the music prodigies that they are secret agents, a couple of prodigies sarcastically say that they are Spider-Man, Lara Croft, etc. Sabeen says she is Waheed Murad, a famous Indian actor. However, Waheed Murad was Pakistani, not Indian. See more »

Quotes

Cody Banks: Why are we going so fast, is someone following us?
Derek: NO, you're late for class?

Fun film for the whole family
6 October 2007 | by BobSongs007See all my reviews

Seems quite a few people have given this film a bad rap. Well, let's take a different look at it.

My younger children, my wife and I watched this film and enjoyed it. We recently rented the first Cody Banks flick. We didn't preview it but there were some scenes in it that were disturbing to our smaller children. This wasn't the case with Cody Banks 2. It puzzles me why this movie got such a low rating.

(Film rating is a bit of a beef of mine. Movies today have so many different aspects to consider: Score, Content, Character Development, Pacing, Editing, etc. And 1 star is so unfair.)

I gave a higher rating because this film was toned down from the original. The childish tone was intentional to contrast it with the very "mature" feel of the first movie. It's more like a family Disney movie: The violence is stylized with humor that's better understood by children. The score is very playful throughout.

The camera work is fine and the plot is something younger children can understand and appreciate. Hey: it's really a spy comedy.

My wife and I felt it was an all round better film than the first. We recommend it for families that watch films together. Rent it before you buy.
