DVD picks: Disney's Arabian horse-race adventure Hidalgo, starring Viggo Mortensen, arrives today, notes Enquirer film critic Margaret A. McGurk. Also new is Jennifer Garner's charming time-travel comedy 13 Going on 30 and a DVD set packed with girl power from another generation, The Complete Gidget Collection - Gidget, Gidget Goes Hawaiian and Gidget Goes to Rome. Weirdly, three different actresses played Gidget, but James Darren played love-object Moondoggie in all the films.

American Idols Live visits U.S. Bank Arena, 7 p.m. Wednesday, 100 Broadway, downtown. $35-$45. 562-4949.
