I'm old enough to remember seeing both "Romancing The Stone" (1984) and it's tasty follow up "Jewel Of The Nile" (1985) in the cinema (to wildly appreciative audiences) and thinking what a huge breath of fresh air both films were. Michael Douglas and the sexy Kathleen Turner hamming it up in Columbian jungles like characters out of her romance novels (exuding rare chemistry and genuine star quality) while Danny DeVito’s sleazoid character Ralph gets the crumpled suits and the drug-dealer’s share of the great one-liners.

But British fans of both films should note that the 'US' 20th Century Fox BLU RAYS of each are REGION A LOCKED - so they will not play on our machines unless they're chipped to be 'all regions' (which few are).

Stick with the now released UK versions – and wait until they hit the ‘2 for £10’ lists. They look better than the DVDs I’ve had all these years and both movies are as memory-refreshing as stumbling on a Grateful Dead jacket in the pilot’s seat of a crashed plane…

It's been a few months since Jack T. Colton (Michael Douglas) and Joan Wilder (Kathleen Turner) sailed off into the sunset (literally). They are now in the Greek isles. Jack loves their life of leisure living on their yacht, but Joan is getting board and is fighting a major case of writer's block. In fact, she can't seem to finish her latest book, which is already overdue to the publisher.

Things change when Joan gets an offer she thinks she can't refuse. Omar (Spiros Focas) is about to become King of his country in Africa, and he is a fan of Joan's work. He wants Joan to write his biography. She is delighted and jumps at the chance, even though Jack isn't interested, and the two split.

But things aren't as they seem. Joan soon learns that Omar isn't all he pretended to be and she must write only what he approves. Jack gets wind of the danger and set off to rescue her. Can he find her? Will they get away? And what is this jewel that everyone is trying to find?

Often time, sequels feel like retreads, going over the same ground as the original. Here, the movie truly feels like a continuation of Romancing the Stone, putting familiar characters in a completely new situation. I found the film just as funny, adventurous, and romantic as the first.

It does have a big flaw, however. Danny DeVito returns as Ralph, one of the bumbling bad guys from the first movie. While he give another fine performance, I found his inclusion highly unlikely. And his storyline went nowhere for most of the film as well. I think the film would have been stronger if they had left him out.

The first film had tons of foul language. This one continues the trend, although it seemed to be toned down some here.

Romancing the Stone was great, funny, original etc. etc. Yes. It was made in S. America. Picturesque, oddball, eccentric... Unfortunately Jewel of the Nile does not follow this. Not entirely its fault. For Americans esp. South America is a kind of picturesque Spanish Latino backwater for the US. A few drug barons, corrupt governments but otherwise exotic and enjoyable. The Middle East is another kettle of fish altogether. Ebert the critic wrote something about the charm of ‘Romancing’ missing from ‘Jewel’. He’s probably right. It does feel a bit as if the actors are struggling to recreate the chemistry and humour/quirkiness of ‘Romancing’, and not quite managing. Chemistry either is present or it isn't. Also it’s the ME, the Arabs. US relations with and attitudes to the ME are entirely different from those with LA. So there is a kind of 'tenseness' about this film. It can’t reproduce the enjoyable quirkiness of ‘Romancing’. It’s just too 'serious' being in the ME. Bad choice of culture for 'fun and quirky'. Anywhere else would have been better. This film was made in ‘85, with all the conflicts out there (Iran 79/80, Lebanon 82-2000, Iran/Iraq 80-90). Not an area for 'fun film making'. So they try to 'take the piss’ make fun of the Arabs and Islam. Doesn't really work. Americans tend to see the ME as a threat (Islam, Israel), or as a necessity, (Gulf oil, Iran oil, Iraq oil). Again not much fun... So bad choice of culture area for 'fun' 'quirky' etc. Acting 'by numbers' for the cast who didn't really seem to be enjoying themselves as much as they were in ‘Romancing’. I give it a 3 'for effort' but really a 2 for 'enjoyability and chemistry'. Regretfully. There are unfortunately too few films then or now that have produced the 'innocent quirky fun' of Romancing. Maybe the Raiders trilogy came closest. Why do film makers and TV producer always start 'bright and breezy' then go down into 'dark'? (MD + KT + DdV in ‘Wars of the Roses’...?). Great shame really...

I bought this because I already had it on DVD but wanted the better quality of Blu-ray.
I think it was worth it because it was a great improvement over the DVD and the film is an easy watch.
I would recommend it.

Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner return in a sequel to the highly succesful Romancing The Stone. In this one all is not well between the two and after a not so happily after ending Douglas and Turner go their separate ways... But trouble intervenes and Douglas must rescue her again. While Douglas and Turner do well together and DeVito returns the chemistry doesn't. A good sequel but like most sequels not as good as the first..
