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. Though the couple agrees that this is a way out of their financial dilemma, it threatens to destroy their relationship. Written by

Diana is reading "The Firm" by John Grisham, which Paramount Pictures soon afterwards filmed as The Firm (1993). The secretary at the real-estate office where she works is reading "Backlash", a book which criticizes director Adrian Lyne for his portrayal of women in previous films. See more »
When bidding at the auction David offers "1 million dollars" for the hippopotamus. This is not possible since his lawyer stated earlier the fee he would receive for the proposal, which would have been deducted from the million David received for the proposal. Therefore David didn't have 1 million dollars to bid. See more »
OK, David, before we go any further, let's get the moral issue out of the way.
Leave that to us.
No, I was referring to my fee. I get five percent.

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