The Sorcerer's Apprentice (PG)
starring Nicholas Cage, Jay Baruchel, Alfred Molina
We watched this with our kids last night. They loved it. I enjoyed it, but Jay said the lead actor's goofy voice and overall goofiness drove him crazy. I thought it was endearing and appropriate... after all, he plays the part originated by Mickey Mouse, so he needs to be goofy.
I guess you can call it a remake of the original Disney cartoon from Fantasia (which was based on Goethe's poem), but there are very few similarities, though they did include a scene featuring magical janitorial equipment. But then what do you expect when you make a present-day feature-length live-action film based on an 8 minute long cartoon short with no dialogue. There is plenty to critique, but lots to like about it. Just enjoy the show.
It's a fun bit of adventure, though probably a bit scary for younger children (hence the PG-rating).... my 7-year-old said he wasn't scared, but he looked like he was once or twice. There were one or two mild swear words and some mild violence. Oh, and a couple of sweet kisses that my boys covered their eyes during. Silly boys.
