A movie/music star who needs protection from a psychotic fan, wow what a concept. And who better to play it than Whitney Houston, a stretch I know.
The plot is totally disappointing and bland. Luckily the on-screen romance and chemistry from Houston and Costner, along with a great soundtrack, save this film from being a total bust. The love story between Costner and Houston becomes the main driving force, preventing the film from running out of ideas. In the end the romance is what you take away from the film, not the convoluted mystery plot.
It's enjoyable in the end and I would recommend it. Of course the soundtrack is one of the best and most popular in history with "I Will Always Love You", "Run to You", "I Have Nothing", and "I'm Every Woman."
