It's The Coolest Job Ever.
Balthazar Blake is a master sorcerer in modern-day Manhattan trying to defend the city from his arch-nemesis, Maxim Horvath. Balthazar can't do it alone, so he recruits Dave Stutler, a seemingly average guy who demonstrates hidden potential, as his reluctant protégé. The sorcerer gives his unwilling accomplice a crash course in the art and science of magic, and together, these unlikely partners work to stop the forces of darkness.

All in all a good time for the family.

One of his last good movies before he just took anything he could get...

if you like Nicholas Cage, this movie is above-average (slightly).
if you don't like Nicholas Cage, move on to something else.

that being said, I have been wondering, to avoid the appearance of nepotism as Francis Ford Coppola's nephew, he changed his name. however, Nicholas Cage has been playing the same character, in essentially the same movie, since the dawn of his career. just the slightest whiff of nepotism, in a city and industry where nepotism is about as common as silicone and peroxide, and he legally changes his name. but playing the same character for more than 20 years is ok. that doesn't fit.

don't get me wrong, I like the character. and Cage is in good company. Harrison Ford and Al Pacino come to mind.

but still, it just doesn't make sense. or maybe I have too much time on my hands...
