Lavonda "Bonnie" Hunt, the good-hearted redhead who presided over cold beer and the eternal memory of the King at Miss Bonnie's Elvis Shrine, died of a heart attack Tuesday at her home above the East Baltimore tavern where she made her living. She was 62.The landmark barroom at the corner of Fleet and Port streets featured a 15-by-12-foot mural of Elvis on the side of the building, a jukebox packed with Elvis hits, and hundreds of Presley artifacts, including a jar of red clay from the singer's native Tupelo, Miss.

Old-fashioned in the best sense of the word, "Return to Me" is a little heart-warmer of a film that keeps threatening to turn into a trite Hallmark valentine. But some old acting pros in supporting roles, and the sure hand of first-time director Bonnie Hunt, keep it from crossing over into so-cute-I-can't-stand-it territory. Bob Rueland (David Duchovny) is an architect whose latest project is designing a new gorilla house for the zoo where his wife, Elizabeth (Joely Richardson), works.

Everything about Cheaper by the Dozen 2 is applied with a trowel. The sentiment, the cuteness, the macho silliness, the family bonding, even poor Hilary Duff's makeup (someone take away this girl's black eyeliner, pronto!). This movie is one huge pile-on, with everyone in the audience feeling like the poor unfortunate at the bottom of the pile. What can you say about a film where Carmen Electra's performance is one of the high points? Cheaper by the Dozen 2 (20th Century Fox) Starring Steve Martin, Bonnie Hunt, Eugene Levy.

"Kissing a Fool" is a perfectly respectable addition to the canon of bland romantic comedies epitomized by movies about Harry, Sally, best friends' weddings and being sleepless in wherever. If it lacks a certain amount of fizz, no matter: "Kissing a Fool" goes through its boy-meets-girl paces with due diligence and even throws in a little style, a few laughs and some standout performances for good measure.Put another way, as a date movie for teens and twentysomethings go, it just might beat seeing "Titanic" for the 16th time.

How do you put a price tag on a shrine? Try this: $104,900. That's the Realtor's asking price for Miss Bonnie's Elvis Shrine and Bar, on Fleet Street in East Baltimore, the slightly rambunctious cultural mecca that went on the selling block three weeks ago, after owner Bonnie Hunt's death from a heart attack last fall.Meet the price and take custody of a religious treasure trove: not only the bar and Miss Bonnie's furnished apartment directly above it, but all imaginable morsels of Elvis memorabilia, including photographs and ministatues of Elvis thin and fat, Elvis on movie posters, on mirrors, on vinyl and on velvet, Elvis with that novocaine lip and that hormonal hair, Elvis laughing and Elvis weeping, Elvis in a green Army uniform and a white jump suit, Elvis with guitar and without, Elvis inside a jukebox filled with his music, Elvis on the covers of such literary epics as "The World According to Elvis" and "Soldier Boy Elvis," and a huge Elvis mural on the Port Street side of the bar which is, for those who would deny Elvis' death, simply to die for.All this, for a mere $104,900?

Pixar's beguiling comedy-drama Cars, the latest alternate universe envisioned by computer-animation pioneer John Lasseter (the Toy Story movies, A Bug's Life), contains no humans, only automobiles that have human features: eyeballs in the middle of their windshields, eyebrows at the top of them, and mouths and teeth under the grilles. These cars overflow with heart, wit and new ideas. And the picture has a moviemaking fearlessness that conventional directors would be wise to emulate. At a time when blockbuster directors panic at the thought of slackening their pace and giving an audience time to feel something, Lasseter turns a portrait of hot-shot Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson)
