A young and impatient stockbroker is willing to do anything to get to the top, including trading on illegal inside information taken through a ruthless and greedy corporate raider who takes the youth under his wing.
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

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 »
After Ralph hits the tunnel wall when he falls off the camel or the camel throws him off, the camel is facing incorrectly away from Ralph immediately after we hear the sound of Ralph crashing against the wall, and on top of that the camel is tied up securely to a wall; then the camera cuts to the other side and the camel is now facing towards Ralph and still tied securely to the wall.

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.
