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.
