Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: A casual line at the beginning of the movie mentions that the [[spoiler:hitman (a former Secret Service agent like Kevin Costner's character) was interviewed and was "eager" for the job of guarding his future target.]]

** [[spoiler:Another interpretation is that the hitman doesn't know who hired him either, as Nikki is KilledMidSentence trying to explain.]]

* BreakTheHaughty: Rachel starts the film as a diva that questions why hiring a bodyguard. By the end of the film, she has been put through the wringer so hard that she spends most of the climax jumping at shadows ([[ProperlyParanoid which actually saves her life, when she signals Frank that she thinks something is wrong... and it is]]).

[[spoiler:Nikki gets her moment as well when she finds out that she gave the order to kill Rachel to a PsychoForHire willing to kill her nephew if that helps him kill Rachel.]]


Added DiffLines:

* WouldHurtAChild: The hitman places a bomb on the boat on Rachel's mountain home, which goes off and ''almost'' kills Rachel's son (Frank saves him JustInTime).

Added DiffLines:

* IrrevocableOrder: [[spoiler:The hitman's order to kill Rachel, not only because Nikki was high on cocaine when she ordered and thus doesn't knows who she asked it ''to'', but because the hitman is a PsychoForHire that refuses to stop even when Nikki is standing in front of him ordering him to (instead, he just kills her and escapes to try again).]]

'''Frank:''' No, I'm afraid that I might have to jog with you.



* TheStoic: Frank.

* TheStoic: Frank.Frank with a generous side of DeadpanSnarker.

-->'''Rachel:''' So, can we get you anything?\\
'''Frank:''' Yeah, orange juice.\\
'''Rachel:''' Straight?

Originally written by Creator/LawrenceKasdan for Steve [=McQueen=] and Diana Ross in TheSeventies, the project was taken up by Costner fifteen years later. This film was a huge success, as was the soundtrack, which sold in the bazillions (it's widely considered to be the top selling movie soundtrack ''of all time''), all fueled by the unbelievable popularity of Houston's rendition of "I Will Always Love You," [[CoveredUp originally]] by DollyParton. In addition, the movie's instrumental music was marvelously done by Creator/AlanSilvestri (and finally released on its own album a mere ''21 years'' later).
