One the best movies I have seen in years!!!
While flipping channels the other night, I lucked upon one of the best movies I have seen in years! It is called "The Guardian" and stars Kevin Costner and Ashton Kutcher. If you loved "An Officer and a Gentleman", then you will love this one too.
Funny thing, it is an action/adventure movie, which ordinarily is not a genre I would watch, but this one sucked me in and I am so glad it did. If you havent seen it yet, you have to do a search on it and then go rent it. It was truly awesome! I rate it right up there with "A Few Good Men", (which is one of my all-time favorites, so that is high praise indeed from me!)

I liked it a lot, but it made me very nervous!~ (I was a fearful kid at swimming lessons--took the instructor weeks to pry my hands off the side of the pool!)
That said, I don't care how old Kevin Costner gets, he's still nice to look atKadi

I looked up the movie but it does not say it has the actors that you said. Is it about a man who takes care of a little boy. I really don't know if I should watch it if it made Rhonda nervous, I need something calming. The thing that gets me about a lot of the movies now days is they end up with you haveing to imagine how it ends. Thoughts,. I need good movies that have a good ending that makes me happy,.. and ones that I don't have to think about it,.LOL

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0406816 It is about a cocky guy (Ashton Kutcher) who signs up for the US Coast Guard to be a rescue swimmer. He was a high school hot-shot, super star swimmer and thinks he knows it all. Kevin Costner is the Drill Sergent (or whatever you call the instructor), who was a legend when he was still a rescue swimmer. The "Drill Sergent" puts the trainee through heck, (sort of like the Drill Sergent did to Richard Gere's character in "An Officer and a Gentleman". I guess watching some of the rescues is what made Rhonda nervous. ???? I am not sure. It didnt do that to me. (Although it isnt a calming sort of movie, if that's what you are looking for.) But, this one is a great one to watch with your DH, since it is one both men and women would like.
Hope that helps to clarify! Also hope you are doing okay. Still thinking of and praying for you and your family.
Lots of love,

I love that movie. I am not a Kevin Costner fan, but that one is really good. It really makes you understand what coast Guard rescue swimmers go through!
