    Any other opinions out there for this movie. I was thinking of picking it up. How will adults like it?

    I thought it was a lot better than the Spy Kid movies - it's a lot less silly.
    I wasn't expecting to enjoy it as much as I did - if you ever dreamed about being an agent when you were a kid then this is your movie.
    Angie Harmon is hot, Hilary Duff is sweet and Frankie Muniz basically does his 'Malcolm' character.
    The story and the villains look like they come from a Bond movie from the Roger Moore years.
    It's a lot better than people say.

    MGM has flipped and put the WS on the SL side, and PS on the DL side.

    bit of trivia!

    But the P&S side has all the extras while there are none on the widescreen side (apart from the commentary which is on both sides).

    That's weird- they usually put the extras just on the widescreen side, seeing how those opting for pan and scan wouldn't bother watching them anyway. They used a DVD-18 for "Bandits" and put all the extras on both sides, though they're still letterboxed on the pan and scan side [​IMG]

    I'd rather they use separate releases, or just make PS DIE.

    If anyone wants to see why, let me know.

    as is, I prefer the flip on Cody.

    Roger Ebert says:

    "[Agent Cody Banks] will be compared with the two "Spy Kids" pictures, and looks more expensive and high-tech but isn't as much fun. It has a lot of skill and energy, but its wit is more predictable and less delightful. It's a well-made movie, to be sure, and will probably entertain its target audience, but its target audience is probably not reading this review, and you (for whatever reason) are. The difference is, I could look you in the eye and recommend you go see the "Spy Kids" movies, but this one, if you're not a kid, I don't think so."

    Definitely agree with you Sven on Angie Harmon! I just finished watching the movie. I thought it was pretty good! I too, liked it better than Spy Kids.
    I wish the extras were on the widescreen side though.
