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 real-estate agent, and David is an idealistic architect who has built a dream house by the ocean --… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"...glossy and soap-opera-like..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"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."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Movie Views
"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."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"Click to read review"
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Absolutely implausible, silly and thin. A shame for Robert Redford...and one more Moore's bad film."
‑ Luis Martinez, Cinenganos
"Although it was directed by Fatal Attraction auteur Adrian Lyne, this film lacked the punch and thriller elements that made that one a hit"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Would you sell your body for a night, to the tune of a million dollars? What makes for five minutes of interesting conversation, alas, does not make for an interesting two-hour movie. [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"Solid Filmmaking and Solid Performances"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Sparked a big cultural discussion, but doesn't resolve its central dilemma very well."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
"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."
‑ Jon Lap, Apollo Guide
"Yes, it's true: in this astonishingly distasteful bit of dreck, there is at the bottom a sappy little romance."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Adrian Lyne directs this film as Zalman King might direct an episode of One Life to Live"
‑ Jason McKiernan,
"Insulting story, but well-performed."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"You're kidding right? A truly embarrassing spectacle deracinated of the novel's interesting political questions."
‑ Nick Davis, Nick's Flick Picks
"Indecent Proposal should prove once and for all that Robert Redford can rescue even the dumbest movie, just by showing up and flashing that killer smile."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
