From Amazon.co.uk

In 1984 Romancing the Stone was a huge hit for director Robert Zemeckis (who later went on to make Forrest Gump, Contact and Castaway among others) thanks in no small part to the winning team of Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner, and Danny DeVito. The chemistry between all three stars is infectious, but Turner steals the show from the guys, playing a pushy romance novelist who gets stuck among some dangerous figures in Colombia and has only a rumpled guide (Michael Douglas) as an ally. Zemeckis--whose specialty at the time was creating set pieces of raucous action (as in his Back to the Future trilogy)--keeps things hopping with lots of kinetic material. --Tom Keogh, Amazon.com

The Jewel of the Nile is a moderately entertaining sequel that pales by comparison to its predecessor. Romance novelist Kathleen Turner and retired soldier-of-fortune Michael Douglas return as a now-complacent couple. Bored with life on a yacht, they find excitement thrust upon them when she accepts a speaking engagement in the Middle East. Once there, she is abducted and finds herself involved with the "jewel" everyone is chasing. Douglas teams up once more with Danny DeVito to rescue his love. Less charming and more predictable than the original, this suffers for one simple reason: the characters have nowhere to go. In the original story we watched Turner blossom from timid storyteller to lusty adventuress. In this flick she is too much like all the other action adventure babes we've seen before. The same trio of stars reunited to better effect in DeVito's dark comedy The War of the Roses. --Rochelle O'Gorman, Amazon.com

Format: DVD
Of these two movies Romancing The Stone is definitely the better one. Why Robert Zemeckis' previous films all failed I can't imagine, as this and the Back To The Future trilogy are some of the best movies I've seen for a long time. The set pieces are packed to the rafters with thrills and spills, the chemistry between the three leads may well cause your DVD player to short-circuit and the script simply does not grow old. It's a stylish comedy adventure with Turner stealing the show from under the two guys' noses. In comparison Jewel is a pale-imitation Indiana Jones and lacks the developments we saw in Romancing (which I think is partly due to a change of director), but if you have nothing better to do on a wet Sunday afternoon there are worse movies to watch.

When I first saw Romancing the Stone on a VHS tape I saw it as a mix of Crocodile Dundee and Indiana Jones. However, there were enough differences in the character and story to make it an enjoyable film. The move to DVD improved the sound and picture quality and so i thought is was worth watching again. It is a great comedy adventure film with heroes, villains and damsels in distress.

The second film started to milk the them a little, but as this is a box set, you have to watch them both. These are films that whilst they have aged a little, are still highly watchable today, even to the point where I have contemplated upgrading them to the Blu-Ray versions.

It's worth it to have the double pack if you can get it. I really enjoyed the movies when they first came out. Great movies to show to all the family, especially on a rainy winter's afternoon. Though Romancing the Stone id defintely the better of the two.

ENJOYED BOTH FILMS WHEN I FIRST SAW THEM SHOWN ON TV. A LARGE VARITY OF ROMANCE , ACTION AND ADVENTURE ALL IN ONE. WELL WORTH THE MONEY SPENT.

These two films perfectly compliment one another blending comedy and action. Great escapism viewing and value for money. This cast also appeared in The War Of The Roses which is well worth a look.

Great to revisit these old favourites. I remember when first watching Romancing the stone it was a real 'Indiana Jones' type adventure.

I thought my children would love these films and I was right!! We all really enjoyed watching them. Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner look so young and fresh, the scenery is fabulous and it took me back to the 80s immediately - memories of sitting in a flea pit with my friends eating mint-cream Poppets came flooding back. Would recommend to anyone who remembers Live Aid and the Rubik's Cube (first time around!)

Turner and Douglas make a terrific duo in these tongue-in-cheek romp adventures. All the elements are in place: Typical bad guys, car chases, money and wealth, cat and mouse games, comedy, spoof, a small sex element, shoot-ups and a good fight/punch-up before the climactic good-guys win ending. Thoroughly recommended. If you've seen War of the Roses and enjoyed it then you will love these.
