It's probably unfair to ask anyone older than 15 for an opinion of Hannah Montana: The Movie, much less any guy older than 15. If ever a movie was geared toward its target audience, this is that movie. So let's get the definite positives out of the way. Hannah Montana is beautifully shot; cinematographer David Hennings clearly fell in love with Tennessee, where much of the movie was filmed, and you just might, too. The landscape has never looked so good. Also, the film earns its G rating; there's nothing offensive or off-color about it, and a little wholesomeness never hurt anyone.

'Hannah Montana' scores at the box office Miley Cyrus and alter ego Hannah Montana have double-teamed their way to another No. 1 box-office debut. Walt Disney's Hannah Montana: The Movie opened with $34 million in ticket sales, according to studio estimates Sunday. That followed Cyrus' first-place premiere last year with her 3-D concert film. The movie is a big-screen installment of the Disney Channel series about an ordinary teen living a double life as a pop star. Hannah Montana drew $17.3 million on Friday for the biggest opening day ever for a G-rated live-action movie.

Miley Cyrus doesn't look like a mouse. Or a befuddled bear. Or even a princess. But make no mistake, like Mickey, Winnie the Pooh and Snow White before her, she is a Disney franchise. Miley is the star of Hannah Montana, a half-hour Disney Channel sitcom following the travails of Miley Stewart, a young girl living in Malibu, Calif., who also happens to be pop star Hannah Montana. Costarring real-life dad Billy Ray Cyrus and consistently featuring a wish list of co-stars including Dolly Parton and Larry David, Hannah Montana is one of the top-rated kids' shows of all time (in 2006, it was second only to American Idol among kids 6 to 14)

This was no ordinary Tuesday afternoon. Indoor soccer games were skipped and piano lessons forsaken. Megan Foard of Forest Hill apologized in advance to her pony, A.J., for bowing out of their regular after-school ride. "He was cool with it, though," the 13-year-old said. And why wouldn't he be? Megan and her friends had to-die-for concert tickets - for Hannah Montana, who played at the 1st Mariner Arena last night before a sold-out crowd of screaming tweens. Thousands of lucky girls, and not a few boys, scampered home from school to prepare for the arrival of the 15-year-old singer-cum-actress, whose real name is Miley Cyrus, and who holds the youthful audience in the palm of her pretty hand.

In the name of Hannah Montana, and, of course, motherly love, Karen Rallis really, really tried to get concert tickets for her twin daughters. But even with one little girl on the phone pressing redial and the other's small fingers desperately working the Internet, the Rallis family ended up ticketless - a situation increasingly familiar to fans of the giggly, bubbly, lip- glossed teen sensation played by Miley Ray Cyrus.

First, Karen McVearry spent $30 to join the Hannah Montana fan club and buy presale concert tickets for her 9-year-old daughter Maddie. Too late - they had sold out. The 36-year-old Catonsville mom tried again the day the tickets went on sale to the public. As Maddie played soccer, McVearry stood on the sidelines, a cell phone in each hand, calling Ticketmaster, while a friend also called and tried ordering online. Still too late. The Jan. 8 Hannah Montana show at 1st Mariner Arena sold out in minutes.

HOLLYWOOD -Being a teenage sensation can be exhausting. Just ask Miley Cyrus. It means performing your current hit, "The Climb," on American Idol and at the Academy of Country Music Awards, accepting a miniature orange blimp for favorite female singer at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards, gracing the cover of the latest Glamour magazine, attending Hollywood premieres and starring in your own - according to the teeny-bopper barometer - wildly successful show....

[Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment] Featuring the voices of Mary Costa, Bill Shirley, Eleanor Audley. Directed by Clyde Geronimi $29.99 (Blu-ray $35.99) *** 1/2 dvds The success of Disney's Enchanted helped revive the fortunes of its earlier Sleeping Beauty. Released in 1959, Sleeping Beauty was the last of the studio's classic fairy tale adaptations and, to many, the last film of the studio's vaunted Golden Age (though some argue that benchmark belongs to 1967's The Jungle Book, the last animated film Walt Disney actually worked on before his death in 1966)

For 16-year-old Chelsea Bradford, standing outside the 1st Mariner Arena last night, wearing a pair of sunglasses on which she had painted the words "Jonas Brothers," the question couldn't have been easier. Asked "What's so great about the Jonas Brothers?" she paused for about one-thousandth of a second before answering, with a look that suggested the answer should have been painfully obvious, "They're hot." There was a lot of that going around in Baltimore last night, as a few thousand teenage girls massed at the arena to welcome Disney's newest singing sensations to Charm City.

No rumbling monster trucks crushing junkyard cars. No throngs of tweens screaming as Hannah Montana takes the stage. And no elephants stomping down Pratt Street in the springtime. At least for a while. If all goes according to the plans announced yesterday, the antiquated 1st Mariner Arena will be torn down and replaced with a new, larger venue. Demolition and construction could take three years, which means Baltimore could temporarily go without annual events like the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, Disney on Ice and yes, even Hannah Montana.

Just a few months ago, Baltimore and the rest of America were caught up in the craze over tween queen Hannah Montana. At the sold-out 1st Mariner Arena, some parents showed up at ticket windows begging, pleading and even weeping to get their family in to see the wholesome pop star. That blockbuster tour was followed with a 3-D movie version that raked in more than $35 million and was the top movie in the country despite a limited release. But today, the fascination over Hannah Montana, the real-life Miley Ray Cyrus, has noticeably cooled.

Atonement -- The crush of an upper-class teen on her housekeeper's son (James McAvoy) catalyzes a devastating accusation that ruins his life and that of the girl's older sister (Keira Knightley). This beautifully acted, remarkably visualized adaptation of Ian McEwan's novel sums up the need for charity and generosity in art and life. (M.S.) R 123 minutes A The Bucket List -- A pair of dying cancer patients (Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman) draw up a list of things to do before they kick the bucket.
