Editorial Reviews

In the blockbuster Romancing The Stone, novelist Joan Wilder (Kathleen Turner) and wanderer Jack Colton (Michael Douglas) went sailing off into the sunset together. In this thrill-packed sequel, Ralph (Danny DeVito) is back on their trail and they're back in the fast lane on a perilous trek through the fierce North African Desert. Not even treacherous tribes, deadly dungeons and semingly endless villains can stop this trio from finding, once and for all, that mysterious "jewel."

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Fantastically Bad Cinema: Jewel of the Nile November 1, 2008
Format:DVD
I had forgotten about the movie "Jewel of the Nile" (1985) until I attended a small performing arts theater tucked into the wilderness of the Lake Region of Maine. There - in a theater that looked more like a barn than a stage -- I caught the rather amusing one-man show of Avner Eisenberg.

He did physical comedy, mostly complicated pratfalls. While perusing his biography in the program, I found this nugget: Eisenberg appeared in "The Jewel of the Nile" as the jewel.

What? I thought, is it even possible that I never watched the sequel to "Romancing the Stone" (1984)? But I had no memory of the movie -none. So when I got home, I rented it.

And it all came back to me - like a horrible nightmare.

"The Jewel of the Nile" is proof that you can't always return to the well. Because sometimes the well water turns into putrid sewage and if you drink it: you will die.

My first reaction was to track down Eisenberg and beat him with a rubber chicken.

"Jewel" is an epic disaster - a sequel so ill-thought out, poorly directed, horribly written, and featuring performances so lackluster one could argue that Michael Douglas wasn't even aware that he was in the movie. And I had seen it before - but had purged the memory from my brain.

I actually turned it off, but the next night, I was drawn back to it like a moth to a candle. The movie was so damn bad that I couldn't help myself. It's unfortunate because "Romancing the Stone" was such an unexpected pleasure. It brought a refresh to the old-fashioned romantic adventure - with some laughs thrown in.

What made "Romancing the Stone" a hit was the chemistry between Kathleen Turner's Joan Wilder and Douglas's Jack Colton.

4.0 out of 5 stars Velveeta at its finest! April 2, 2005
Format:DVD
I blinked and missed the eighties, too busy working and raising kids. So I picked this up, along with "Romancing the Stone," in the nineties, and caught up!
A cheezy, but classy, brace of time capsules.

4.0 out of 5 stars A sequel that mostly makes the grade April 20, 2004
Format:DVD
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.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Romancing The Stone 2: The Jewel Of The Nile December 27, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Okay, now I have no doubt that this is going to annoy some people and seem petty but the title of this one really annoys me as a collector. Putting this in alphabetical order in my collection really throws it off. Putting it alphabetically where it goes is no less annoying. It should have been called, "Romancing The Stone 2: The Jewel Of The Nile" but wasn't. Douglas and Turner are super in the characters, the story isn't a bad one and DeVito is always a thrill to watch. But it just does not compare to the original film. In this one Turner's character is invited to join the future leader of his people after having a fallout with her beau. But Douglas' Jack must come to the rescue when tales of the Jewel Of The Nile and fear of his lady come into play. DeVito and Douglas must make an uneasy truce in hopes of recovering the jewel and rescuing the lady. If you own the first you might want this one, just put it under "R".
