A high school swim champion with a troubled past enrolls in the U.S. Coast Guard's "A" School, where legendary rescue swimmer Ben Randall teaches him some hard lessons about loss, love, and self-sacrifice.
A pop singer has been receiving threatening notes, and her manager hires a bodyguard known for his good work. The bodyguard ruffles the singer's feathers and most of her entourage by tightening security more than they feel is necessary. The bodyguard is haunted by the fact that he was on Reagan's secret service staff but wasn't there to prevent the attack by Hinckley. Eventually the bodyguard and the singer start an affair, and she begins to believe his precautions are necessary when the stalker strikes close to home. Written by

Originally I Will Always Love You" wasn't in the movie - the big single was "What Becomes of the Brokenhearted." When that song was used in Fried Green Tomatoes (1991), Kevin Costner suggested "I Will Always Love You." See more »
When Frank is explaining to the limo driver his new role as his assistant, Frank points one of his handguns directly at the driver. A former Secret Service agent would always be aware of the direction of his muzzle, and would never under any circumstances point it at someone absentmindedly. See more »

I have watched many action movies but this one makes one think: what happens next? This material could have been handled badly, but it comes out refined and elegant.
Both Whitney Hustoun and Kevin Costner stay true to their types, yet sharing a common purpose giving a spiritual dimension to the movie as observed by a commentator.
This is not a conventional romantic movie and that is why many are disappointed. It is a throwback to old concepts of chivalry and knighthood. The remarkable point to observe is that it is a modern story about an independent woman and her child.
This is a movie which feels good and genuine in the end.
