PG Certificate


Our Score
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.


A novelist travels to the Middle East to become a sheik's official biographer, only to end up being held hostage by him. Her lover joins forces with an old enemy to rescue her, but they get drawn into the hunt for a mysterious ancient treasure that has a connection to an eccentric holy man. Comedy adventure sequel to Romancing the Stone, starring Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner and Danny DeVito.
