HEAVY MIDNITES: The Bodyguard

Whitney, we’ll always love you. And never more than in your fabulous film diva debut: an outrageously over-the-top, gleefully ridiculous star vehicle stuffed with romance, thrills, laughter and music. It’s a four-quadrant milestone geared to set your heart aflutter and have you singing along with the best-selling soundtrack of all time! Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston propel this narratively old-fashioned, yet deliriously-of-the-‘90s date night blockbuster about an ex-Secret Service agent-turned-pro-bodyguard tasked with protecting a superstar at her peak. Passion, peril and camp melodrama all tumble-dry together as The Bodyguard shamelessly manipulates our starving emotions. Who wouldn’t love a rollercoaster of outrageous acting and euphoric excitement, as mega-hits “I Will Always Love You”, “I’m Every Woman” and even the Oscar-nominated(!!) “Run to You” and “I Have Nothing” swoon through the speakers?
Dir. Mick Jackson, 1992, 35mm, 130 min.
