4.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie, BAD Quality April 22, 2003
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Just about everyone who orders this title has seen it before. So this is in regards to Video quality. If you must own the movie fine then by all means purchase it but be warned the DVD movie quality is atrocious. I must have about 100 movies now and of course you do expect some dropouts and scratches on older titles but this one really takes the cake in my opinion. This copy is littered with dropouts " small white specs" , scratches and well just a plain dirty rendition of a superb movie. I have no clue why a DVD production house would allow something this bad to go into mass production unless they just believe that Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner fans will buy anything with them in it. I was beginning to believe that when you purchased a DVD you were getting the absolute best that these companies could offer. NOT SO, It appears that the bottom line is still about making a profit. Sadly enough its the consumer that ends up flipping the bill. The intros and menus are top notch superb DVD quality. And it starts out ok but gets prgressively worse. Honestly guys this movie could have been mastered from a better copy instead... well for us Douglas Turner fans a complete and sad letdown.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Classic on the perfect format January 31, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is a great classic Michael Douglas film. It looks the best it ever has on the blu ray format. The picture quality isn't as good as other blu ray movies from the same era, but it is much better than the dvd version. So if you are a fan of this movie definitely pick up this version.

5.0 out of 5 stars jewel of the nile February 17, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The material arrived in good shape and in a timely manner. I have started a collection of classic movies and in my opinion, this movie ranks as one of the best. Funny is always funny and I guffaw each and every time I watch this classic. I recommend this classic for every movie buff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jewel of the Nile February 19, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The two movies for a nice set. Romancing the Stone and Jewel of the Nile, in that order, are fun to watch. You don't need to be a super highbrow person to appreciate the fun and to have a very entertaining time watching these flicks. That is the real bottom line here. Are you going to be entertained and feel satisfied in the end and that is a yes. That IS the point to it ya' know. We don't need intellectual enlightenment to have a good time with a movie. That is not what these two movies offer. What you do get is a good time and that is worth the price. Pop your corn, settle in, cozy up, hit the start button and enjoy. The best part, you will.

4.0 out of 5 stars A sequel that mostly makes the grade April 20, 2004
Rarely does a sequel to a smash movie rise to the same level as its predecessor - but perhaps Jewel of the Nile is the exception (along with some of the Indiana Jones follow-ups).
This sequel to Romancing the Stone, a rip-snorter adventure/romance with Kathleen Turner and Michael Douglas, set the stage for this 2nd one. They've been together since the end of the 1st movie, living on his yacht. She is on assignment in the Middle East when she's abducted, and it's up to Douglas and of course Danny DeVito, to rescue her.
Good stuff, but not quite 5-star.

2.0 out of 5 stars 2 1/2 stars for a lame sequel November 28, 2011
Following the footsteps of "Romancing the Stone" which I thoroughly enjoyed, it's easy to understand why the series stopped here. In the previous film, lightweight though it may be, there is no question that the chemistry between Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner helps make it fun to watch. Not so here. This is essentially a lame attempt at comedy with some ludicrous adventure thrown in. Poorly written it doesn't work very well. I can't totally dismiss it, because of Douglas and Turner but come on.

4.0 out of 5 stars A different kind of desert storm May 14, 2011
It's been six months since we last saw Jack T. Colton (Michael Douglas) and Joan Wilder (Kathleen Turner), who in the interim have been making their leisurely way around the world on the sailing yacht Jack bought with the money he got from selling the giant emerald El Corazon. Unfortunately familiarity has begun to breed, if not contempt, at least frustration, which isn't helped by the fact that Joan is suffering severe writer's block; apparently living a romance isn't conducive to writing one. When a flamboyant Arab (Spiros Focas) invites her to write his biography, she leaps at the chance--not only is he attractive, but she thinks it may be time for her to move on to more serious efforts. But Omar turns out not to be what she thinks, and Jack, joined by their rather inept nemesis Ralph (Danny DeVito) from Colombia, sets out to rescue her. Meanwhile Joan has discovered that the "jewel of the Nile" that everyone (including Ralph and, to an extent, Jack) is looking for is in fact a desert holy man (Avner Eisenberg) who is also a prisoner of Omar's, and the two of them have contrived an escape. With plenty of humor and wild action, and a great turn by the Flying Karamazov Brothers as five Sufi warriors, this is a fun variation on both romance and action movies that owes at least a tip of its hat to Indiana Jones.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun movie. August 24, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"Jewel of the Nile" is a fun follow up to "Romancing the Stone". It is not nearly as good as the orginal, but worth watching on its own merit. Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner sparing, then romancing, are great to watch. The shooting locations, action and humor are icing on the cake.
