    The movie is ingenious in the way it surrounds its essentially crass subject matter with a camouflage of romantic scenery.
  2. Mr. Lyne's films may not cast any new light on the human condition, but they do keep you glued to the screen.

    As sexist propaganda, the film is shameless.

    Because director Adrian Lyne takes all this so slowly and seriously, Indecent Proposal is an inadvertent comedy. As such, it is much funnier than "Honeymoon in Vegas", which tried in vain to be funny about the same idea.
  5. With some movies, though, it's just the opposite. Like this one. It's a whole lot easier to forget than to forgive.

    This is one of those high-concept pictures with a big windup and weak delivery.
  7. With a shamelessly cliched script by Amy Holden Jones (based on a novel by Jack Engelhard) that includes a speech plagiarized from Citizen Kane, the results are only for those who can take fare like "Valley of the Dolls" with a straight face and want to see Redford play Jay Gatsby again.

    average for me.... acting was sub par I thought compared to previous work the two major stars (Demi, RR) had done. Not a big Woody fan in anything lol

    Subject matter did hit a nerve though - "how would I feel?" worth watching but that's about it
