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

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.

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.

This sequel to ROMANCING THE STONE has its ups and downs.Like the first one,this is a film I saw TOO many times.Liked it a lot ten years ago,but I dont go crazy for it now.The plot:novelist Joan Wilder(Kathleen Turner)is invited by an Arab ruler by the name of Omar Kalifa(Spiros Focas)to go to his country and write his biography.That way,he will have more exposure to the western world.Bored and wanting some action in her life, she agrees.This causes tension between her and boyfriend Jack Colton(Michael Douglas),leading them to put their relationship on hold.Once she gets there,she discovers that Omar is up to no good,and that she is in great danger.Omar is disliked by his people because he took away "THE JEWEL OF THE NILE".Jack is aware of this and goes to Africa with Ralph(Danny DeVito) to rescue Joan.Here is a flaw I noticed. The big flaw is in reference to the names of the African locations.You break your head trying to figure out where they are.No specific known country name is mentionned. At one point,Joan looks at at map that appears to be Sudan,because the capital city of Khartoom is shown.Yet,the lack of information puts you in a state of confusion.At least,the locations mentionned in ROMANCING THE STONE are clear.Like the first one,this film is dated.It had a big popularity in the 80s and early 90s.It was aired many times on TV and somehow was forgotten by many moviegoers.Unfortunately,as time went by,you seem to notice that ROMANCING THE STONE had a superiour status than THE JEWEL OF THE NILE,because the action and adventure seems farfetched and too caried away.Certainly the first one was farfetched but it had a convincing effect.This time,you cant really go along with it. I must mention that this film is worth a look,and all the stars give us good performances.For me,this movie is a good example of the negative effects that occur due to repeated viewings.

2.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, but uneven Aug. 14 2000
By Funky D
Format:DVD
Sequel to the somewhat-thrilling "Romancing the Stone", this movie was more entertainment than adventure tale. It starts off well enough, with another of Joan Wilder's romantic tales, and segues to real-life where Joan and Jack are taking the cruise they promised each other at the end of "Romancing the Stone". From there the tale is fairly predicatable, and there are some action shots that will make you groan (the scene with the jet fighter is a particular groaner), but there are enough highlights to make the effort worthwhile. Danny DeVitto is terrific in this film and provides some much-needed comic relief in just the right spots.

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Skip this one. Just watch "Romancing the Stone" again.
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. Read more
