Let me get this straight. He offered you a million dollars for a night with your wife? As in *your* wife Diana? And you agreed to it? I don't know what to say. How could you do something like that? *How could you negotiate without me?* Never negotiate without your lawyer. Never! For a woman like Diana I could have gotten you at least two million. Obviously, you don't want to get screwed, and then... screwed!

Without doubt, the touchy theme makes this film worth watching.
However, your opinion of it will, very likely, be influenced by what your own reaction to the 1 million dollar proposal would have been if you were in the same situation.
The film doesn't condemn anybody. It just reveals the fragility of a relationship, despite the strong love that resides in it.
Does it really matters if this kind of indecent proposal is not a realistic scenario? The millionaire willing to give a million dollars to spend one night with someone else's gorgeous wife is a fantasy. The consequences are, however, real.
The film uses an extravagant trigger to create a convincing emotional crisis that many couples will recognize.
The message is that at the end, true love wins; an attitude that I would recommend to any loving pair, attained by jealousy and resentment.
