Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie was extremely popular for the songs Whitney Houston performed for the film. Years after its release, it still boasted the best-selling soundtrack of all time -- but the film itself hasn't held up quite as much, so unless kids are big Kevin Costner or Houston fans, it's doubtful they'll be clamoring to see this romantic thriller from 1992. Be aware that there's some violence, including a bloody knife fight and several scenes involving gunshots and casualties. Kevin and Whitney's characters kiss and have sex, but there's no nudity. Language is standard for an R-rated drama.
- Sexual Content
- Frank and Rachel kiss several times and make love; Rachel kisses a man who then tries to force himself on her.
- Frank pulls out his gun in many scenes when he's guarding Rachel. He and Tony get into a bloody knife fight. A supporting character is shot, and a bomb nearly kills Rachel's son. Frank is shot while defending Rachel, as is the paid assassin.
- Standard rated-R language: "f--k," "s--t," "ass," "bitch," "dick," etc.
- Social Behavior
- A singing superstar is selfish and petty; a bodyguard crosses the line between business and pleasure.
- An Academy Awards ceremony plays a prominent part in the third act. Samurai movies and swords are also featured.
