The Jewel of the Nile
The Jewel of the Nile ★★½ 1985 (PG)
Sequel to “Romancing the Stone” with the same cast but new director. Romance novelist Joan thought she found her true love in Jack but finds that life doesn't always end happily ever. After they part ways, Jack realizes that she may be in trouble and endeavors to rescue her from the criminal hands of a charming North African president. Of course, he can always check out this “jewel” at the same time. Chemistry is still there, but the rest of the film isn't quite up to the “Stone's” charm. 106m/C VHS, DVD . Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner, Danny DeVito, Avner Eisenberg, The Flying Karamazov Brothers, Spiros Focas, Holland Taylor; D: Lewis Teague; W: Mark Rosenthal, Larry Konner; C: Jan De Bont; M: Jack Nitzsche.
