M R Ducks?Nah. M ain't Ducks. M R platitudes.That's the gist of "D3: The Mighty Ducks," which reanimates the peewee hockey kids, this time with a gooey helping of moral instruction about the dangers of vanity and the joys of subsuming the self in team ethos. Are you listening, Mighty O's?The usual suspects are back, not that you can tell, but the eminence grise of the series, Emilio Estevez, really only appears in cameo, as an adviser brought in late in the picture for pep talks and legal maneuvers.

There are 8 million jokes in "National Lampoon's Loaded Weapon 1," and at least one of them is funny.The movie is an all-over-the-landscape parody of the modern cop thriller -- chiefly the "Lethal Weapon" series, but also "Silence of the Lambs," "Die Hard" and others of the ilk -- which lays on so many yuks so fast you're almost always three or four jokes behind.Here's where I laughed: when, in the background and out of focus, some cops did the limbo under that yellow evidence tape that is a crime-scene cliche.

One man's critique of the new fall TV shows:"Hearts Afire" (CBS): Haven't seen this one yet -- a freak electrical storm knocked out the cable. When it came back, a commercial for the e.p.t. home pregnancy test was on. These are the commercials purporting to show real couples finding out their real test results in the privacy of their own homes -- with a 10-man camera crew and a national TV audience of 40 million looking on, of course.The commercial featured a woman of about 38, biological clock ticking loudly, sadly finding out she's not pregnant.

Where were you on that terrible June night when Robert Kennedy was assassinated? More importantly, what did you think after you heard about it? Bobby is a lament of what might have been. It is not a history lesson; those looking to explore the events of June 5-6, 1968, should look elsewhere. It does not offer insight into the mind of his assassin, Sirhan Sirhan, or touch upon the myriad conspiracy theories that since have arisen. It does not delve into RFK the man, or look at the political climate or examine the times in which he lived.

"The Mighty Ducks" hews to its formula with such Zen purity it's amazing; indeed, that commitment to unoriginality is the most impressive thing about it.They've been making this one since the mid-'70s, when they called it "The Bad News Bears." This time, they're making it about pee-wee hockey, with a listless subtext involving self-forgiveness and redemption. Yet, as machine-made as it surely is, somehow the thing isn't quite as bad as it should be.Emilio Estevez was born for this role. He's got the natural smugness of a man who absolutely knows he'll never lose his hair.

"Freejack"? Man, they ought to call this one "Cheapjack"!According to "Freejack's" most arrogant conceit, it has seen the future and the future costs $3.98.Volkswagens wearing streamlined fiberglass skirts hurtle down the busy streets of a megalopolis at nearly 14 miles per hour. Teeming crowds of nine, possibly as many as 11, murmur in sprawling alleyways that must be at least a half a block long. Cheesy matte paintings of skyscrapers and animated signs are jerry-rigged into a stock shot of the Manhattan skyline, which means the lab is as close as the movie ever got to Gotham.

If you want to watch interesting TV tonight, you'd better have, get, or visit someone who subscribes to, cable. Broadcast TV tonight is sort of like obesity. It's a big waist.* "Cinderella . . . Frozen in Time" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Dorothy Hamill stars in this new, on-ice staging of the fairy tale classic, which features Lloyd Bridges as the narrator and includes a few twists. Instead of losing a glass slipper, for example, Ms. Hamill's Cinderella is attacked suddenly and cracked in the knee with a club.
