Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and that can only mean one thing around these parts... It's Theater Thursday! This weeks featured movie is none other than, The Bodyguard
Since the untimely death of Whitney Houston, I have been thinking about this movie. Before her death it was a classic and after her death it is still a classic. Not only is the story a good one but the soundtrack was even better. Whitney gave us some of her greatest songs during this movie. 


If you've never seen The Bodyguard, let me give you a little plot background. Kevin Costner stars and Frank Farmer, a for hire bodyguard who use to guard the President. When celebrity Rachel Mariner (Whitney Houston) starts to receive death threats they call upon Frank's services. Unbeknownst to Frank, Rachel actually isn't aware that someone is out there hunting her. He's brought in by someone on her team. Not wanting to give an inch, Rachel fights Frank the entire way on his security plans. 


Throughout this entire time, she begins to like Frank and starts to fall for him a little bit. At the same time her killer is getting closer and closer to her. Once she realizes that someone is trying to kill her she leans on Frank more than ever.

Always loved this movie!
A friend of mine hasn't seen this and I'm so glad it's on Netflix so I can force my friend to watch it over and over again. LOL

Such a good movie!! I've been thinking about going back and watching it again. I can remember blaring I will always love you in the car and singing it with my friends carpooling to school!

I'll be honest, I'd totally never even heard of this movie until Whitney's funeral was on television. Is that bad?
