Product Description

Amazon.ca

This sequel to 1984's rip-snorting romantic-adventure, Romancing the Stone, is a moderately entertaining tale 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. --Rochelle O'Gorman

This movie is a fun sequel to "Romancing The Stone", but I feal that the production of the film was rushed and there was not much concentration in the writing of the script.

I feel this film FAILED to deliver the same quality of action, writing, plot, and story line that Romancing The Stone gave us.

Douglas and kathleen Turner did not play the same characters as they did in the First Movie, and it was as if the characters were re-written in a bad way....even though they had the same names.

The Budget for the movie is clearly much lower, and the acting is not very good.

But if you are up for a cheesey 80's Movie with dorky lines and dim witted humor...you will have fun watching Jewl Of The Nile

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 Very Well Done Feb. 24 2004

Jewel of the Niel is the sequel to Romancing the Stone also with Michael Douglas,Kathleen Turner and Danny DeVito. The Movie stars off kind of slow but once the movie goes over seas to the Middle-East it gets alot better I don't want to give away to much but this movie should not be missed. Also to readers of this review if you like these two movies you the actors in it you should check out WAR OF THE ROSES

Not too bad for a sequel, but this film has absolutely none of the "magic" of the original. Everything seems forced, contrived, and artificial by comparison. As others have noted, the story ended precisely where it should have at the close of "Romancing the Stone." Too bad they did not leave well enough alone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie, BAD Quality April 22 2003
Format:DVD
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 Fun movie ! July 18 2001
Format:DVD
Romancing The stone probably is a better movie as it is more exciting but its sequel "The Jewel Of the Nile" is every bit as entertaining. 3 principle stars (Douglas, Turner, DeVito) are all wonderful. I would have given it 5 stars if not for the DVD short comings. No Dolby 5.1 and the picture quality is below averae. A remastered edition probably is unlikely so grab this one as Fox already dropped its retail price from ...

3.0 out of 5 stars Nowhere near as strong as the original Dec 24 2000
Format:DVD
The success of "Romancing the Stone" wasn't in the non-stop bickering between the principals. Rather, that was a component in a film -- one of my favorites -- that had a lot of other things going for it, like atmosphere, an intersting B-story featuring rival groups of antagonists, an interesting setting and, most importantly, the tension between Joan Wilder's romantic fictions and her romantic reality.
With "Jewel of the Nile," everything is gone except for the bickering. The most enjoyable villain is reformed (mostly), the setting is generic (and fairly insulting) Middle East, and the adventure features little of the fun that informed the first movie.
Apparently, there's a script for a third movie floating around in Hollywood that's allegedly far superior to "Jewel of the Nile," and there are people who are reportedly disappointed they couldn't ever make it, due to the lack of success this film had. I'm sorry, but "Jewel of the Nile" got what it deserved: It's a middle of the road remake to a film that really lucked into its breakout status to begin with. This is by-the-book filmmaking, and comes off that way.
Whereas I am pleased to own "Romancing the Stone," "Jewel of the Nile" is definitely just a rental, at best.
