4 out of 5

This sequel to Romancing the Stone re-teams stars Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner and Danny DeVito, and does so without falling into too many of the usual sequel pitfalls (making the same movie over again, for instance). It starts a few months after Douglas whisked Turner off on his dream boat at the end of the first film, but she has already become bored with all the lovey-dovey stuff and jumps at the chance of hitting the exploration trail once again, at odds with Douglas but determined to get even as he chases after a gem called the Jewel of the Nile, with DeVito in hot pursuit. The three leads clearly have fun, and the action and snappy one-liners come thick and fast, making this one of those rare sequels that's not too far short of the quality of the original.

Plot Summary

Action adventure sequel to the hit Romancing the Stone, starring Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner and Danny DeVito. Novelist Joan Wilder finds herself becoming bored with the relaxed lifestyle she shares with Jack Colton on board his boat. But an invitation from an Arab sheik who wants Joan to write his biography leads to her abduction and Jack finds himself once more involved with old adversary Ralph and a beautiful gem.
