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.

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.

This is the sequel to "Romancing the Stone". It suffers from the same problem of many sequels; it does not measure up to the original. It IS different from the original; I'll give it that. Unfortunately, the plot is not as good as the original. This comes as no surprise, considering the fact that the writer of the script is a different person.

Great Sequel to Romancing the Stone. Danny DeVito was even better in this one! The title track is still not included with aFabulous Music Video with Billy Ocean. It appears the studio never gets it going??? All three principle STARS in White Tuxedos lip doing the backup vocals and Dancing Too. Give Billy his royalty will ya??

I find Michael Douglas' sense of comeduy timing and presentation very good. He knows how to deliver a funny line and make a relatively normal situation funny. I think this must have been one of his earlier movies and I enjoyed it very much. I got a few good laughs and the story line is OK, though not great. It involves the kind of danger the whole family can enjoy.

1985 saw the rather rushed sequel to Romancing the Stone with Kathleen Turner, Michael Douglas and Danny Devito returning once again to the big screen as their original characters of Joan, Jack and Ralph on another adventure. It has been six months since their adventures in Columbia, and Jack and Joan have been sailing the high seas all over the world aboard their boat, the Angeline (named after Joan's heroine in her romance novels), which Jack purchased after selling the emerald El Corazon from their first adventure. Joan has been suffering from writer's block and longs to head back to New York, while Jack is perfectly content to live their exotic, jet set lifestyle of great parties and good times. A tension has been building between them, although it's not referenced enough until a certain moment early in the film, when the audience realizes that they are not as happy as they should be (although Jack shows his anger when he is referred to at a party hosted in Joan's honor as Mr. Wilder). Joan meets a flamboyant Arab named Omar who invites her to come to his fictional country in Africa to write a piece on him, praising him as the new leader of the nation. Joan, wanting to make a change from writing romantic fiction, accepts the offer and leaves. Jack is reunited with Ralph, angry and seeking revenge for his incarceration following the Columbia kidnapping, and meets a wild eyed Arab who earlier attempt on Omar's life was not successful named Tarak. Tarak informs Jack of Omar's true intentions as a dictator and begs him to help him and his people free The Jewel, Al-Julhara, which Omar has possession of. Jack and Ralph agree and travel to Africa with Tarak who has them join in on his freewheeling, circus antic people who are out to free The Jewel from Omar's prison.Read more ›
