Lubricious-themed director Adrian Lyne proposes a [I]what if…[/I] movie*************************** Indecent Proposal. Lubricious-themed director Adrian Lyne proposes a what if… movie, one revolving around what if the wife of a happily married couple was given an offer of one-million dollars if the wife spends one night with a “billionaire poondog” which, in their case, would once and for all settle the land they’re trying to develop for their dream house. Moral issues are hardly a concern for the movie except when homogenized into the rest of the individual what if… situations. Indecent Proposal is a lot funnier than intended, mainly because of the ridiculousness of its exposition, but nothing is funnier than Demi Moore and Woody Harrelson trying to pass themselves off as teens in some early hand-held videotaped scenes. The tag-team narration gimmick can probably be traced back to Indecent Proposal’s point of origin—Jack Engelhard’s novel, nothing I’ve taken any time to familiarize myself with—but in written form, I doubt it comes off as syrupy and corny as this dilettante attempt. This is only but a string of embarrassments for Moore; Harrelson’s career is a slow burner and a slow starter, so it’s hardly a notice; but most of all, it’s a huge hindrance to Robert Redford, who can do nothing but stroke his golden hair and flash his glib smile.
