To get the best out of the great adventure pack you have got to remember that Romancing the Stone was released in 1984 and the jewel of The Nile shortly followed in early 1986.
You have to think back to a time before all the stunts where done by CGI, back to a time when Michael Douglas did not look like a grey prune, and kathleen Turner had not let her looks slide and was Hot! Even way back then Danny De Vito was funny!
This is old School escapism at it's best. Romancing the stone is the better of the two movies and was Director Robert Zemeckis's calling card to big budget time hopping adventures, and finally led to pretty dodgy CGI movies. The movie works due to the none flagging pace and chemestry between the two leads.
Jewel Of The Nile is again a good sequel, but is not quite as sharp as the first movie, and Director Lewis Teague ( Alligator, Navy Seals) lacks the direction and style of Zemeckis's original.
but although not quite as good the chemesty between Douglas and Turner is brilliant, and De Vito is given more screen time, and delivers in the laughs.
It may be dated, and pales in comparison to the first three Indianna Jones adventures, but for sheer escapism, both movies are still hard to beat.

 Adventure, Comedy and Romance

Normally I run away from anything remotely rom-com, but I got sucked into both of these films when I was a kid and still like them now. Romancing the Stone is the superior of the two with Michael Douglas reluctantly heroing his way into Kathleen Turner's heart.

But to be honest, it is easy to forget the romance side of things, the adventure is fun and fast paced. Easy going, fun films for the whole family.

 Chemistry doesn't get better than this

| | See all inisbeag91's reviews (503)

The chemistry between the three main characters really doesn't get any better. Every scene that they are in is so funny. Douglas and turner are especially good together. The first movie i would give five stars as it would rival indiana jones as one of the best action/adventure movie around. The second i would give 4 stars as it is not as good as the first but it is pretty good still. Two great movies at a good price

 Excellent
