When the going gets tough, the tough get going.
Joan Wilder is thrust back into a world of murder, chases, foreign intrigue... and love. This time out she's duped by a duplicitous Arab dignitary who brings her to the Middle East, ostensibly to write a book about his life. Of course he's up to no good, and Joan is just another pawn in his wicked game. But Jack Colton and his sidekick Ralph show up to help our intrepid heroine save the day.

In the end, The Jewel of the Nile didn't really meet expectations. Not at the Box Office and not with me. It's a decent enough adventure effort, but fail to live up to Romancing the Stone. If you are after excellence stick with the aforementioned predecessor. If you just want an ok enough adventure movie to pass a couple of hours, The Jewel of the Nile will do.
