High-gloss movie that had couples everywhere discussing the big question: Would you let your wife sleep with a billionaire in exchange for a million bucks? Probably, if all were as goodlooking as the weathered, yet ever gorgeous Redford. Moore and Harrelson are the financially down on their luck, but happy, couple who venture to Vegas on a last-ditch gambling effort. Surreally slick direction from Lyne, but an ultimately empty film that explores the values of marriage in a terribly angst-ridden fashion. Based on the novel by Jack Engelhard. Proof that average movies can make a killing at the boxoffice, landing in sixth place for 1993.

This situation is crazy, and I would never do this! David and Diana Murphy are a young and very much in love. They are married and have started their respective careers, she as a real estate broker, he as an architect. Diana finds the perfect spot to build David's dream house, and they get loans to finance it. When the recession hits, they stand to lose everything they own, so they go to Vegas to have one shot at winning the money they need. After losing at the tables, they are approached by a millionaire, John Gage, who offers them a million dollars for a night with Diana. They agree that this is a way out of their financial dilemma, but their relationship could be destroyed in the end.
