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."

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Jewel of the Nile is a 1985 action-adventure romantic comedy. and a sequel to the 1984 film Romancing the Stone, with Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner, and Danny DeVito reprising their roles. Directed by Lewis Teague, the film sends its characters off on a new adventure in a fictional Afrcan desert, in an effort to find the precious "Jewel of the Nile." Despite being a box office success, it was a disappointment in critical reviews.

The introduction of The Jewel of the Nile's level of intrigue is bijou and there are many decent action scenes(especially for an 80's flick) further into the Film.Closer to the end things get really awkward but are still entertaining,but really long drawn out semi-interesting action scenes get really redundant before and during the final acts and there are no twists after the first half hour.

The Cast is still good,especially Danny Devito this time around,but Michael Douglas and kathleen Turner are not giving much to do here.Kathleen Turner does not get a chance to display her versatility as much as the last Film in this series and Michael Douglas does not come off as burly as the last Film.

I must commend the Film for the conflicts it presents the main characters Joan and Jack in the beginning of the Film,they develop well in this Film,although their paths are far more predictable this time around.Ralph is a stand out character in this film as he walks a thin line between what we expect him to do.

All in all the Film drastically lacks the charm of the original and the Plot is evidently foreseeable,while both Films are equally as funny,this Film is not as ornate or imaginative.Douglas and Turners chemistry is not that bad here and it is better than the overall plot,but overall the Film is not as good as the first one
