The Sorcerer's Apprentice: It ain't magic

Nicholas Cage had the Movie slut at Raising Arizona. That was 1987 and she's been a fan ever since. Still, she was not swept away by "The Sorcerer's Apprentice," in which he plays a quirky, mysterious sorcerer. Yes, the movie was mildly diverting. No, MS was not bored. But memorable it is not.
Jay Baruchel is the apprentice, a young physics geek who's the heir to the most powerful magician who ever lived: Merlin.
There's some fun to be had in this flick, which may be more appropriate for the middle-school set. Movie-goers are even treated to a broom scene. But no Mickey.
