What's Your Favorite Kevin Costner Movie Or Show?

Warner Bros.
Warner Bros.

Though he's been in literally hundreds of movies and shows, there's more than enough to choose a favorite from. He did a great job in "The Bodyguard" opposite the late great Whitney Houston. One of my personal favorites as a kid was his role in "Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves", not only because its a great story, but for the fact that he maintained his "American" accent in a "period piece" set in England.
