'Agent Cody Banks'
(Frankie Muniz, Hilary Duff, Angie Harmon / PG / 96 mins / MGM)

Overview: Frankie Muniz stars as a teenager who becomes a James Bond-type spy when he is drafted by the U.S. government for covert missions requiring kid-sized undercover agents.

Verdict: To be honest, ’Agent Cody Banks’ is so slick and preprogrammed that even its preteen audience may dismiss it as formula. The real mission is product placement, but where it does offer a few funny moments of light-hearted relief, has had any trace of personality surgically removed and replaced by a fully road-tested cliché! But, at the end of the day, it really is a lot more enjoyable - for adults as well as kids - than most of what passes as youth-aimed entertainment nowadays, but it just can't shake the stigma of being a wholly uninspired "Spy Kids" knockoff!
