You know, a dad who’s always gone for work—because work as a CIA assassin can be demanding—repairs the relationship with his daughter.

Honestly, even with a powerhouse like Costner in the starring role, I am baffled as to how this movie was given the green light, produced and released.

Last weekend, Jackie Joyner-Kersee watched the opening ceremonies of the Winter Olympics in Sochi from her West St. Louis County home with a smile on her face. Come to think of it, there isn't much of anything she does without a smile on her face! And why not?
