Though a box-office success, grossing nearly $267 million worldwide on a $38 million budget, Indecent Proposal was panned by critics mostly because of its failure to keep the story interesting beyond its initial titillating premise. Based on the novel of the same name by Jack Engelhard, Indecent Proposal follows married couple David (Woody Harrelson) and Diana Murphy (Demi Moore), whose relationship is put to test when a stranger, John Gage (Robert Redford), offers Diana a million dollars to spend the night with him. According to Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly, “Indecent Proposal starts out kinky and turns into a languid-and shockingly banal- domestic soap opera.” This was echoed by James Berardinelli of ReelViews.net, writing, “once the setup is over … Indecent Proposal starts to fall apart, with … contrivances getting worse with every passing minute.”
