In a future where the polar ice-caps have melted and Earth is almost entirely submerged, a mutated mariner fights starvation and outlaw "smokers," and reluctantly helps a woman and a young girl try to find dry land.
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

Frank arrives at the mansion for the first time and is talking to Henry. The camera angle shows Frank from the front, starting to button his suit coat. A close-up then shows Frank, looking down as if he's finishing up with that buttoning business. The next shot is of Frank from the rear, hands in pants pockets--coat obviously unbuttoned. He takes his hands out of his pockets, starts to button the coat--and while still doing it, the camera shifts back to the front view--the coat is already buttoned, and Frank's hands are already down at his sides.

Network version included a scene, not on VHS release, where Frank inspects and opens a suspicious package to find a chattering beaver figurine with a note "From your fans in Beaver, Pennsylvania". 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.
