Plot Summary

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 Ed Sutton

Goofs 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 »
