Who saw this one coming?
I didn’t. I can’t imagine any of you did.
I was pretty stuck for this year for a while. Because Unforgiven is great, but it doesn’t exemplify 1992. Wayne’s World is the same. I thought about A League of Their Own, but no. Basic Instinct was one I seriously considered. The Crying Game was probably the alternate here.
But… The Bodyguard was the second-highest grosser of the year, behind Aladdin.
And “I Will Always Love You”? Despite being a cover, it was number one on the Billboard chart for 14 weeks. Got that? 14 weeks.
The Bodyguard is the choice for 1992. (more…)
