This is the sequel to "Romancing the Stone" where Jack and Joan have their yacht and easy life, but are gradually getting bored with each other and this way of life. Joan accepts an invitation to go to some middle eastern country as a guest of the sheik, but there she is abducted and finds her- self involved with the "jewel". Jack decides to rescue her with his new partner Ralph. They all go from one adventure to another... What is the story of this "jewel"?Written by

There were plans of an ongoing franchise ala Indiana Jones; and The Crimson Eagle and Racing the Monsoon were proposed sequels; involving Joan and Jack and their teenaged children going on another globetrotting treasure hunt expedition together. There were also plans of rebooting the franchise with Taylor Kitsch and Katherine Heigl. But all of this was eventually scrapped. See more »

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.
