Disclosure (1994)
The only box office hit on this list besides Indecent Proposal, Disclosure shows executive Tom Sanders (Michael Douglas) who's passed over for promotion in favor of his ex Meredith Johnson (Demi Moore). Despite the fact that Sanders is married and uninterested, Johnson tries to force him into a relationship with her, and when he refuses, she accuses him of sexual harassment.

Based on a novel by Michael Crichton (of Jurassic Park fame), the flick works because there's a story beyond the sex, which mostly serves as a catalyst for the real (and less sexy) drama of lawsuits and counter-lawsuits. In the end, Sanders weathers the scandal of the situation and winds up back right where he was at the start of the film without his promotion, but he's learned a valuable life lesson... maybe.
