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 camera operator riding the dolly rail during the airplane scene where the camera revolves around actors Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston fell off when the centripetal force surprised him while shooting the scene. The cameraman climbed back onto the rigging during filming to retain operation, finishing the scene, which was kept in the movie. See more »
As mentioned above, for a supposedly trained professional, Frank Farmer commits at least two violations of basic weapons safety rules by pointing a loaded weapon at people he doesn't intend to shoot. First when he is discussing security with Henry, Frank points his .45 directly at Henry. Then, during the incident at the cabin, as soon as he chambers a round in his .45, he points it directly in Nicki's face as he tells her to stay still. See more »

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."
