GREENLIGHT #78: The Guardian (with "Wyatt Earp" and "An Officer and a Gentleman"

Ann and Les were so pleasantly surprised with The Guardian (2006) even though it's a formula film - grizzled veteran vs. cocky recruit. Both went in knowing that Kevin Costner doesn't have the greatest track record lately but were thrilled wtih what they saw. And, skeptical as they were of Costner, they were convinced that Ashton Kutcher would be a disaster. Instead, he was fantastic - and it wasn't just his swimming skills. For their GREENLIGHT Rentals, Les recommends an unheralded Costner film directed by Lawrence Kasdan called Wyatt Earp (1994.) Les says it's the best telling of the story of Wyatt Earp on film. And Dennis Quaid gives an amazing and skinny performance of Doc Holladay. The list of other stars in this movie includes Mark Harmon, Gene Hackman, Michael Madsen, and Catherine O'Hara, Bill Pullman, Isabella Rossellini, and JoBeth Williams among so many others. Ann recommends a classic veteran vs. recruit movie that made stars of director Taylor Hackford and stars Richard Gere and Debra Winger, David Keith called An Officer and a Gentleman (1957.)
