Critics Consensus: The Bodyguard is a cheesy, melodramatic potboiler with occasional moments of electricity from Whitney Houston.

Great Whitney Houston songs, mediocre love story.

What Parents Need to Know

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.
