Our Score
Would you pay $1 million to sleep with Demi Moore? Robert Redford thinks she's worth it, as he puts the proposal to Moore's husband, Woody Harrelson, after learning they need the money. The interesting "would you do it?" premise of Adrian Lyne's drama goes slightly awry as the moral issues are dumped in favour of all three main characters simply showing how selfish they are, and as a result this is probably best viewed as a commentary on the excesses and emptiness of the early 1990s. But, with these leads, who are we to quibble? Just tune in to watch Redford and Moore doing what they do best, with Harrelson giving them a run for their money.

Summary

A couple dealing with financial difficulties are approached by a billionaire, who offers them $1million in return for one night with the wife. They accept the deal, but the husband's suspicions after the event threaten to tear their relationship apart. Adrian Lyne's drama, starring Robert Redford, Demi Moore, Woody Harrelson, Oliver Platt and Billy Bob Thornton.
