Weak plot
is downfall



By Greg Labor
Staff Critic


A down-and-out couple goes to
Vegas and loses all of its money.
Then, a professional gambler offers
to bail them out if he can spend the
night with the young man‘s wife.
Sound familiar?

Last year, it was called "Honey-
moon in Vegas." and it was a laugh
not. Now, it's the premise of “In-
decent Proposal." and we're sup—
posed to take it seriously.

The makers of this film are up
against steep odds. It's tough to
evoke emotional responses from a
situation someone else made us
laugh at. Director Adrian Lyne tries
hard — perhaps a little too hard.

Based on Jack Englehard‘s novel
of the same name, “Indecent Propo-
sal" centers on the relationship be
tween two high school sweethearts.
David. played by “Cheers“ regular
Woody Harrelson. is an aspiring
and impassioned architect. Demi
Moore (“A Few Good Men") plays

his wife, Diana. a real-estate agent.
Diana suggests they take out a
couple in seemingly innocent ways.





The storyline in ‘lndecent Proposal,’ starring Roberd Redford, Demi Moore and Woody Harrel-
son may remind moviegoers of last year's hit, ‘Honeymoon in Vegas.’

loan so David can build his dream
house and make a name for him-
self. Unfortunately. the recession
wipes out their dreams. and they
are forced to scrounge for funds or
abandon the project. David comes
up with the bright idea of flying to
Vegas with their last 55,000.

When luck fails them. they are
approached by John Gage. a profes-
sional gambler who wants to bor-
row Diana for a few rolls of the die.
She wins him big money. and he in-
sists on repaying them at a party. It
is here that he offers David 51 mil-
lion t'or a night with his wife.

Gage ingratiates himself to the

but his ulterior motives are obvious
to the audience. We can feel our-
selves slowly sucked into his trap as
the couple accepts gift after gift.

But once David and Diana accept
the garnbler's offer, there is no
where left to go. All of Lyne’s clev-
er camera angles and imaginative
lighting aren‘t enough to breathe
life into this soulless script.

The talented cast offers little
help. As the gambler. Redford
walks through his role with little
enthusiasm or expression.

Moore does no better as the wife
turned prostitute. Rather than devel-
op a character. she is content to rely
on sex appeal and frequent tears.

Ironically. it is Woody Harrelson
who is most believable in what
many consider a difficult dramatic
role. The comic charms he honed

Men Can‘t Jump" make him lika-
ble. even as this very flawed man.

The problem with the movie is
one common to Lyne‘s work. Like
many of his contemporaries, Lyne
is more comfortable with visual
gimrnickry than human frailties.

The last half of the film sputters
out of control as Gage pursues and
torments the couple like Glenn
Close in “Fatal Attraction.“ When
David cracks. we are expected to
believe that his wife overcomes her
hatred of the gambler and falls for
him instead. The transition is so un-
likely, it seems almost comic.

Expecting us to believe in these
people and their actions is the most
indecent proposal of all.

Starring Woody Harrelson, Demi

By 80 List
Staff Critic


You're $50,000 in debt, and you
have only $5,000. What do you do?

Go to Las Vegas, of course.

Well, that's what David and Diao
na Murphy do. David (Woody liar-
relson) has just borrowed that mon—
ey from his father in a last-ditch
effort to come out ahead. His house
(his dream) is on the line, and there
seems to be few options for them.

Believe it or not. though, they
turn that $5,000 into $25,000 in a
few short hours. They go back to
their hotel, tumble romantically in
their winnings, and promptly lose it
all the next day.

Where is the solution?

It appears in the form of million-
aire John Gage (Robert Redford).
He takes quite a liking to Diana
(Demi Moore) when he notices her
stealing complimentary chocolates
from an expensive clothier. He later
asks David if he can “borrow" her
for good luck on a million-dollar

She wins it for him, and he is en-

()ver a casual game of pool. the
three of them discuss whether peo-
ple can be bought. Diana says no.
and to prove a point, Gage offers
David (remember this) $1 million
for one night with Diana.

They say no. but can't sleep that
night. They need the money and de-
cide to go through with it because it
would just be her body. not her
mind or her heart.

A contract is drawn up by the
couple‘s lawyer and friend Jeremy
(Oliver Platt who appeared in “Flat-
liners"). complete with all kinds of
clauses including payment in the
event of impotence or death. Gecz,
he‘s not that old.

The night comes and goes, and
they are given the million. 'Ihey
agree never to speak of it again and
leave Vegas with the intention that
Gage be left behind with it.

But David finds Gage's phone
number in Diana‘s purse. Was Dia-
na really just talking on the phone
with her mother. or is she having an
affair with Gage? And just what is
David doing in Diana‘s purse? Sus-
picions arise and they both discov-
er that they can’t forget about it.

of the pleasanter charms of the mo-
vie. “Indecent Proposal" has no
shortage of little reasons to like it.

However, they are not enough to
completely erase one gigantic flaw:
unoriginality. There isn‘t a whole
lot here that hasn‘t been done be-
fore. The recent comedy “Honey-
moon in Vegas“ fits the same mold,
and “Pretty Woman" bears a resem-
blance as well.

This is no romantic comedy.
though. “Indecent Proposal" is dark
and. in many ways, sinister.

Money as an object and as a con-
cept, is paid enormous respect and
is held in higher regard than free-
dom, fidelity and human life. This
attitude is reflected on all fronts,
and is no more evident than in
Gage‘s treatment of David as an
owner of a woman rather than as a

This isn’t the film's point of
view, though: director Adrian Lyne
plays devil’s advocate on a lot of
these issues, and his handling of the
situations shows more class than

that Robert Redford’s in it? As the

Mashbum uses ineligibility to his benefit


By Ty Halpln
Sports Editor

When Jamal Mashbum walked
off the court after UK's loss to
Michigan at the Louisiana Super-
dome in New Orleans, he could
have looked into the cameras and
said, “I'm going to Disneyland."

Mashbum didn't get a paycheck
signed by Michael Eisner, but Sat-
urday he did sign autographs at The
Cats' Pause fu’ $5 a pop. With the
estimated four to five hundred
Wildcat fans who attended the ses-
sion. someone stood to make a pret-
ty penny.

Oscar Combs, publisher of The
Cats' Pause, contacted Mashbum to
set up the event and indicated yes-
terday that Mashbum cleaned up on
the deal.

“He made a nice piece of
change," Combs said. “We paid
him to come. Basically, all the
money went to him.“

John Bostick, UK’s director for
compliance, said that Mashbum is
not in any trouble with the NCAA.

“The big thing is that what he did
would affect his (future) eligibili-

Cooperation now means
students have better shot

at being heard next year




One of the most important uansitions facing the Student Government
Association relates to students‘ voices being heard in the halls of state


In past years, outgoing presidents have done everything from sabotage
to nothing to damaging their successors‘ voices. There is hope this year
that one of those unfortunate situations will not be repeated.

Outgoing President Pete November and President-elect Lance Dowdy
should resolve, for UK students‘ benefit not to let one of those scenarios


One way the two presidents can work together is to secure the selection
of Dowdy as chairman of the Board of Student Body Presidents, which
consists of the student presidents of the eight state-supported universities.

Because of Lexington‘s proximity to Frankfort. it's important in a legis-
lative year that the board chairman be able to reach the capital quickly.
The fact that UK is the state‘s flagship institution cannot be ignored.

This position had gone to UK presidents before. but the last two times
any hope was scuttled by the lame duck.

Another important decision the board makes is nominating individuals
for the student seat on the state Council on Higher Education. The board
will send three names to Gov. Brereton Jones. who will make the appoint-


This year's representative. Clay Edwards. did a yeoman's job in his un-
successful attempt to avert a tuition increase — a much better job than any

of the student presidents did.

For that reason and the fact that. as a UK graduate and a University of
Louisville law student. Edwards represents two of the biggest state institu-
tions. he should be reappointed. Rather than nominating someone else,
Dowdy should nominate or support Fdwards.

With Edwards back on the CHE and with Dowdy as chairman of the
board. UK students will be placed in a better position to have their voices
heard in Frankfort Teamwork is the key.

Braun too big

for editor’s chair
To the editor:

Hey, Joe Braun!

Your column on March 25. “Clin-
ton destroying the United States,“
was arrogant, ludicrous and embar-
rassing. You compared Janet Reno
and those proposing legislation that
would protect the staff and patrons
of abortion clinics to the Nazis: “Si-
lencing the opposition. Remember
the German Gestapo?"

The conservative terrorism of
abortion activists seems more in
line with Nazi tactics than laws to
protect the rights of women. You
wrote: “If it becomes illegal to
block or picket the entrance to fed-

and no brains lately).

Maybe we‘ve got you wrong.
Maybe you're putting on that
poundage purposefully so you can
fill Rush Limbaugh's shoes. (Both
you and your reactionary idol get a
lot of mileage out of absurd Nazi
parallels, e.g. Limbaugh’s femi-
Nazi gibberish.)

Instead of wolfing down Twink-
ies, you might go further if you
worked on your prose. Sentences
like “Assuming Aspin can stay
alive long enough (because of his
ailing heart). the wording will be in-
teresting to see" don‘t
