Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
This provocative, high-concept drama, which generated countless newspaper and magazine stories and many hours of broadcast commentary when it hit theater screens in 1993, was saved from terminal tawdriness by the thoughtful, measured performances of its three stars. The movie’s simple premise still seems titillating: A destitute married couple (Woody Harrelson and Demi Moore) are offered a million dollars by a wealthy businessman (Robert Redford), on the condition that the wife sleep with him for one evening. With no better options available, the couple agree -- not realizing that the illicit assignation will plunge them into an abyss of guilt, jealousy, and resentment. Essentially just a glossy melodrama, Indecent Proposal doesn’t linger on the overtly sensational; director Adrian Lyne (Fatal Attraction) suggests more than he shows. But the questions he raises, and the emotions he stirs, enable this compelling film to get under a viewer’s skin like few others. Lyne, whose fondness for subversively erotic subjects is well known, explains and justifies his thematic preoccupation in a new commentary for the DVD release.
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert

I mentioned Pretty Woman earlier. I could also have mentioned The Crying Game. What those movies and Indecent Proposal all do brilliantly is allow the audience to be voyeurs while acceptable people do unacceptable things.
