A young couple very much in love are married and have started their respective careers, she as a real estate broker, he as an architect. She finds the perfect spot to build his dream house, and they get loans to finance it. When the recession hits, they stand to lose everything they own, so they go to Vegas to have one shot at winning the money they need. After losing at the tables, they are approached by a millionaire who offers them a million dollars for a night with the wife.

Did You Know?


The role of David was originally intended for Val Kilmer.


When John ('Robert Redford') first sees Diana (Demi Moore) he has on a white shirt, but the next time he sees her he is sitting at the blackjack table and has a checked shirt on.


I thought he was the better man. I know now he's not. Just got more money.

User Review

$1,000,000? For a night with Robert Redford? For real? Where do I sign up?!

Rating: 8/10

Wow, I am a little surprised by the rating. Only 5.3? Come on, this was
a good movie! Was it the best? No, but it's better than most I have
seen. If you were offered a million dollars, could the strength of your
relationship survive it? I really got into this movie, because I knew
how it would damage the couple's life. I think that they did deeply
love each other, but they mention how they were childhood sweethearts,
and kind of rushed into marriage. So, the point is, they've probably
never been able to question if they had feelings for anyone else.

Struggling financially is horrible. How far would you go to get some
money? People will go the distance and sometimes take a front seat with
the devil! "Indecent Proposal" goes all the way and shakes up human
emotions. I really felt that this was a very good movie and should be
watched. 5.3 is a little harsh, what was so bad about it?
