On the soundtrack, stars Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner and Danny DeVito sing backup to Billy Ocean's "When the Going Gets Tough". Because the three stars were not members of the Musicians Union, Ocean's video was banned in the UK. Despite this handicap, the song would be Ocean's first #1 UK hit. See more »
Many details reveal the F-16 to be fake, for instance the windshield (divided instead of being a one piece) and the belly (big bulge where the main landing gear attach). See more »

It's impossible. Tomorrow we journey to Kadhir where the following night I will proclaim myself Emperor of the Nile. You must be there with me. It will be your most important chapter.

Lacks Everything That Made Its Predecessor So Good.
A somewhat sketchy screenplay and unsteady direction sink "The Jewel of the Nile", the sequel to "Romancing the Stone". Kathleen Turner and Michael Douglas are taking it easy on their yacht, but soon become a bit bored with their now simple lives. Turner gets an invitation from a suspicious sheik in the Middle East who has a dastardly plan up his sleeves. Danny DeVito is also along for the ride once again as everyone is searching for the seemingly unobtainable jewel. Likeable performances are the main attraction, but the film is a large step behind "Romancing the Stone". 2.5 out of 5 stars.
