Nine-year-old Tina Majorino tucks one leg under the other and leans back nonchalantly in her wicker chair. Ready for her interview, she blows her nose with a honk. The spirited young actress, featured in three films opening within three months of each other, seems completely unfazed by her newfound celebrity status. Despite the glare of TV cameras at the posh Mauna Lani Bay Hotel, she comes across as natural and unaffected as the quintessential girl next door.

A former child actor with roles in such films as "Corrina, Corrina" and "Waterworld," Tina Majorino took time off before returning to work once she turned 18. When she read the script for "Napoleon Dynamite," she was taken by the cast of lovable oddballs and misfits and wanted to audition because, she says, "Honestly, I just wanted to meet the people who wrote it, to see what they looked like."

Tina Majorino of Camarillo isn't old enough to drive, but she already has a list of professional acting credits that could shame a seasoned veteran twice, even thrice, her age. The 14-year-old, who began her career when she was 2, recently played Alice in the NBC production of "Alice in Wonderland." In 1997, she received critical praise for her role opposite Ellen Barkin and Oprah Winfrey in ABC's film "Before Women Had Wings" and was seen in the four-hour miniseries "True Women" for CBS.

The 1993 Beethoven's 2nd (NBC Sunday at 7 p.m.) is just as funny and appealing as "Beethoven" the first, a family film that actually can be enjoyed by the whole family. As millions of moviegoers will recall, Beethoven is the name given to a lovable but horrendously messy Saint Bernard who escapes dognapers to become adopted by the Newtons, much to the chagrin of the fussy head of the family, George Newton (Charles Grodin).

The Scene: The summer's most eagerly awaited premiere--Universal's "Waterworld" at Mann's Chinese Theater on Wednesday. Of the epic that's earned the Cecil B. DeMille-worthy epithet "The Most Expensive Movie Ever Made," star Kevin Costner said: "It's done and we've done our best." The Locale: A nearby parking lot was transformed to evoke the film's floating "atolls"--rusty sheet-metal walls, hanging nets, fountains, Jet Skis, oil drums and a fully rigged catamaran as the centerpiece.

Don't let recent disappointing TV blockbusters stop you from tuning in to "True Women," a delicious historical epic in two parts, with a strong cast headed by Dana Delany, Annabeth Gish and Angelina Jolie. The title is ironic, not coy; it's from a 19th century male assertion that "true women" would never want to do anything as unwomanly as vote. Even though they were working farms and ranches, defending their families and losing their lives to brutal frontier conditions and conflicts.
