EMILIO Estevez's oddball road movie, "The Way," does not have a moneymaking bone in its body, and I mean that in a good way. It's a true indie, financed outside the system, promoted via an old-fashioned barnstorming tour by Estevez and his dad, Martin Sheen, who are riding around the U.S. in a bus, hosting promotional screenings. The whole thing is a family affair - the idea came from one of Estevez's own sons who, while living in Spain, learned of the ritual of the Camino de Santiago - an 800-kilometer spiritual pilgrimage through the Pyrenees and Basque region of Spain.

Another day in Splitsville. Former Lakers gal Paula Abdul filed for divorce yesterday from Emilio Estevez after two years of marriage. "It's with tremendous reluctance and great sadness that I've taken this action," Abdul, 31, said in a statement. "Although our marriage did not work out, I have great affection and both personal and professional respect for Emilio. I know that we'll continue to be supportive of each other in the future and that our friendship will go on. " Estevez, 32, had no comment.

Waves crash onto the sun-washed beach near Santa Monica, Calif., where Emilio Estevez is relaxing with his dog, a huge, friendly Rhodesian Ridgeback named Rowdy. "I'm taking a little time off to sort of enjoy some R&R," says Estevez. "I've been working for 18 months straight with no time off. " It's true. He's been awfully busy. In Young Guns II, he reprises his 1988 Young Guns role of Billy the Kid. And he directs, writes and co-stars with his brother, Charlie Sheen, in the new film Men at Work.

"Loaded Weapon I" is a ramshackle spoof of macho cop pictures that's very funny when it isn't excruciatingly bad. Referencing "Lethal Weapon" and "48 HRS," this movies casts Emilio Estevez and Samuel L. Jackson as white/black cop partners on the trail of a criminal organization that is spiking Girl Scout cookies with cocaine. Jon Lovitz appears as a sad sack version of the Joe Pesci "Lethal Weapon 3" character, and Kathy Ireland provides Estevez's sure-to-die love interest.

It's a punishment worse than any crime - to serve 500 hours of community service by coaching a truly pathetic team of peewee hockey players. Such a rotten collection of no-talents, they don't even have a nickname. That's what hotshot laywer Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez) thinks when he's assigned to serve his DUI sentence with the District 5 team. The first quarter-hour of "The Mighty Ducks," which sets up Gordon's takeover of the team, may be incomprehensible to youngsters in the audience.

In a way, you have to admire the pluck of Emilio Estevez - director, screenwriter and star of "Men At Work. " He's the only young director in Hollywood - no, the only director - who would try to build his own movie with parts from "Rear Window," "The Godfather" and last summer's "Weekend At Bernie's. " Guess which one "Men At Work" most resembles. Actually, "Weekend At Bernie's" wasn't a bad movie - a one-joke deal about two guys who get stuck with a dead body, and try to make it appear as though the body is still alive.

If there were a truth-in-titling law, Men at Work, an aimless if amiable comedy starring the brother team of Charlie Sheen and Emilio Estevez, would be renamed Boys at Play. Our heroes are beach-city sanitation engineers (san-men to you) who play Frisbee with trash-can lids when not using them as jousting shields. But that's just their day job. They are also surfers, and under their coveralls they wear wet suits, always prepared for any eventuality. Whether pitching the cans or hitting the waves, James St. James (Estevez)

"Maximum Overdrive. " A thriller starring Emilio Estevez and Pat Hingle. Written and directed by Stephen King. Adapted from "Trucks," his short story from the series, "Night Shift. " Photographed by Armando Nannuzzi. Edited by Evan Lottman. Music by AC/DC. Running time: 97 minutes. A DEG release. The new pornography - violence in movies - is getting out of hand while the High Gods of Good Taste concern themselves exclusively with how on-screen characters conduct themselves in bed. Stephen King's "Maximum Overdrive" - which marks the inauspicious directorial debut of the horrorstory writer - represents a new low for the new pornography.

There are many reasons to see Bobby: to watch Sharon Stone give Lindsay Lohan a manicure, to watch Sharon Stone give Demi Moore a haircut (yes, Sharon Stone - beautician!), to watch Demi Moore play a drunken diva, to watch Ashton Kutcher pretend he's a hippie, to watch Laurence Fishburne cook. And then there is the real - and sole - reason to see Bobby: the archival clips of Robert F. Kennedy, the junior senator from New York, as he runs for the Democratic Party's nomination for president in the spring of 1968.

You've got to figure old Rupe Murdoch and his Fox conglomerate are going to be able to pay off a little of the TV Guide purchase debt with profits from "Young Guns. " The film's got some of the hottest young names in the business - Emilio Estevez, brother Charlie Sheen, Kiefer Sutherland and Lou Diamond Phillips - sometimes showing bare chests and often bearing soulful scowls. There are lots of exploding guns and whizzing knives. In between are wrenching soliloquies, appropriate gore and a requisite peyote-consuming scene.

HANK'S FOR THE MEMORIES. After two decades, Hank Williams Jr. and ESPN have parted ways in the wake of the country singer's analogy to Adolf Hitler in discussing President Obama on Fox News on Monday morning. That means "Monday Night Football" will no longer start with "Are you ready for some football?" ESPN said: "We have decided to part ways with Hank Williams Jr. " But in a statement to the Associated Press, Hank said: "I have made MY decision . . . Me, My Song, and All My Rowdy Friends are OUT OF HERE.

Paula Abdul: I'm not wack In an always fascinating, surreal, and at times vaudevillian interview with TV Guide, the much maligned American Idol judge Paula Abdul says she's no harebrained doofus strung out on pills. The star of a new reality show all about Paula called Hey Paula , Paula mines a seriously deep narcissistic vein and basically claims she's some kind of prophet. "I've endured life journeys that people never in a million years would ever think of experiencing," Paula says about the bumps in her life, which have included an airplane crash, a car accident, a nasty divorce from Emilio Estevez , and a killer eating disorder.

It's one thing when we see 25-year-olds writing their memoirs, but Leonardo DiCaprio getting a Lifetime Achievement Award? He just turned 30. Yes, he's up for an Oscar for his role in The Aviator. Yes, the role already won him a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors' Guild award nomination. True, he's done well for himself so far. In 1993's What's Eating Gilbert Grape? he played opposite Johnny Depp and Juliette Lewis; This Boy's Life, also in 1993, saw him with Robert De Niro and Ellen Barkin; the ill-fated (but hugely successful)

QUOTE "This is more attention than the average man should ever get" - Phila Donahue, on the hoo-hah surrounding the 25th anniversary of his TV show. MADONNA SAYS SINEAD WENT TOO FAR OVER POPE Madonna, whose own on-camera antics have shocked and offended some people in the past, told a Dublin radio station that Irish singer Sinead O'Connor went too far by tearing up a picture of the Pope John Paul II on "Saturday Night Live" earlier this month. "I think there's a better way to present her ideas rather than ripping up an image that means a lot to other people," the American pop star said in an interview with Irish state RTE radio.
