Kathleen Turner resisted making the sequel because of her money squabble over the original, and because she didn't like the script, over which she had negotiated approval. She only signed after Fox filed a $25 million lawsuit against her. See more »

Oh, please. Let me get out of this alive. I swear to God, I'll be a good boy from tomorrow on.

In some ways I did enjoy "The Jewel of the Nile". It has our favorite characters from "Romancing the Stone", funny and romantic dialouge, and some decent action. But did we need it? No, not really. "Romancing the Stone" was a great action and romance movie; with a perfect ending that needed no explanation.
This movie starts off with Jack and Joan sailing in the Medateranian. They are fighting already about who gets more time to do what they want already. They go to a party that is being thrown for Joan by a devote fan who happens to be a leader of a middle east country. He wants her to write his biography. She agrees but she and Jack have to spend 6 weeks apart from each other ending in a separation or break up, who knows? And of course it ends up being a crazy adventure looking for the "Jewel of the Nile" that ends up being a disappointment somewhat?
Over all, it's a decent flick. It's the 80's, it's the time for not so great films. The effects are cheesy and the acting is so-so. But for the most part, it is a film worth giving a chance too.
