About the Movie
This box office blockbuster stars Academy Award-winner Kevin Costner ("The Guardian," "The Upside of Anger") and Grammy Award-winner Whitney Houston ("Waiting to Exhale") in a romantic suspense thriller about an ex-secret service agent-turned-professional-bodyguard, who never leaves anything up to chance, until he meets a pop superstar-turned-actress whose fabulous career takes a life threatening turn when she becomes the target of an obsessive fan. Written by Lawrence Kasdan ("The Big Chill," "Raiders of the Lost Ark"), The New York Post calls this film "Costner's sexiest role to date," and Gannett News Service calls it "an entertaining, suspenseful, romantic thriller... Costner and Houston generate sparks!"
Not exactly a thriller!
I enjoyed this movie as a Sunday evening, relaxing chick flick. Although there is a mystery in the plot I didn't find it an especially edgy thriller. It's a somewhat poignant insight into what Whitney Houston's life may have been like ion some ways.
One aspect I really loved was realising how much technology has changed in the last 20 years...life before cell phones!
Altogether enjoyable movie that won't challenge the grey matter.
