Melodramatic yarn about the relationship between Whitney Houston's pop singer and Kevin Costner's bodyguard. Made for a smash in the cinemas and in the pop charts
A shamelessly manipulative but winningly commercial bit of film fluff which landed a fortune at the box office and produced one of the biggest selling soundtrack albums ever.
Houston (making her feature debut) stars as actress diva Rachel Marron, who is foced to hire the services of former secret service agent Frank Farmer (Costner) when her life is apparently in danger.
The inevitable love-hate relationship ensues. This is entirely predictable stuff from British director Jackson, in which everything goes exactly as you might expect right up to the somewhat surprising conclusion. This is disposable, yet for all its flaws it remains fun.
Old fashioned star vehicle that makes no bones about manipulating its audience, but which does so with plenty of theatrical gusto.
