Robert Redford has all the cash. Demi Moore and Woody Harrelson want it. Oliver Platt will settle for 5 percent. But if you pay close attention, you’ll notice that the money at the center of Indecent Proposal has a mind of its own. When Redford (playing kazillionaire John Gage) asks Moore to place a bet for him at a baccarat table in Las Vegas, you see him push $100,000 in chips over to God’s gift to Vanity Fair. But the next time the chips are visible, they have jumped back over to Redford. Weirder still, the transformation happens not long after Moore has said, ”If you want something very badly, set it free. If it comes back to you, it’s yours forever.” -George Mannes
