Action Movie For The Day - Jack Colton and Joan Wilder return for more fun in THE JEWEL OF THE NILE (1985)


When friends get together....

Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner return as adventurer Jack Colton and romance novelist Joan Wilder in The Jewel of the Nile, the sequel to their smashingly fun film, Romancing the Stone. Danny DeVito also returns as the meddlesome Ralph, a thief who crossed paths with the duo in Stone. Jewel of the Nile is a good if not great follow-up. The action moves from the jungles of South America to the African desert. Still there is plenty of action and humor as the trio still have wonderful chemistry. Douglas handles all the required stuff while Turner is engaging and sexy as ever. Devito gets most of the laughs. Stand-out sequences include a wild chase through the streets of a crowded town and a fight between Jack and a huge African tribesman. Plus you can never go wrong with the catchy theme song, When The Going Gets Tough as sung by Billy Ocean. I dare you to listen to the video below and not hum along.
