Adrian Lyne buffs the premise of Honeymoon in Vegas to a fine gloss in this yuppie melodrama that poses the conundrum of whether the loving husband of an equally loving wife will accept $1 million to allow his wife to spend one night with a billionaire who looks like Robert Redford. All the cynics please take a number and form a line at the right. Demi Moore and Woody Harrelson play Diana and David Murphy, high-school sweethearts who marry and who are doing very well -- Diana is a successful

Although it was directed by Fatal Attraction auteur Adrian Lyne, this film lacked the punch and thriller elements that made that one a hit
Yes, it's true: in this astonishingly distasteful bit of dreck, there is at the bottom a sappy little romance.
A film that is at times laughable yet at the same time, over 15 years after its release, its premise is still up for debate and discussion.
Adrian Lyne directs this film as Zalman King might direct an episode of One Life to Live
It pulls us in on the nudge-nudge-wink-wink strength of its premise, but what it does with that premise is more than Hollywood usually manages.
Solid Filmmaking and Solid Performances
Insulting story, but well-performed.
Sparked a big cultural discussion, but doesn't resolve its central dilemma very well.
You're kidding right? A truly embarrassing spectacle deracinated of the novel's interesting political questions.
Absolutely implausible, silly and thin. A shame for Robert Redford...and one more Moore's bad film.
The melodrama of Indecent Proposal is a throwback to Douglas Sirk's brand, in that it seeks to subvert the status quo rather than support it, offering a biting criticism of contemporary marriage.
- David Murphy: I know now that people in love remember the things they do to each other. If they stay together, its not because they forget, but because they forgive.
- John Gage: Dance?
- Diana Murphy: I should go.
- John Gage: I remember once when I was young, and I was coming back from some place, a movie or something. I was on the subway and there was a girl sitting across from me and she was wearing this dress that was bottoned queer up right to here, she was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. And I was shy then, so when she would look at me I would look away, then afterwards when I would look back she would look away. Then I got to where I was gonna get off, and got off, the doors closed, and as the train was pulling away she looked right at me and gave me the most incredible smile. It was awful, I wanted to tear the doors open. And I went back every night, same time, for two weeks, but she never showed up. That was 30 years ago and I don't think that theres a day that goes by that I don't think about her, I don't want that to happen again. Just one dance?
