Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Turns unnecessarily nasty with its racist depiction of Arabs and a barrage of racist jokes."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"If there's ever a good example as to why sequels are rarely as good as the original, it is The Jewel of the Nile."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"decent sequel romp"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall

‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Not much sparkle to this sequel."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"OK, but weak sequel to the first Douglas-Turner outing."
‑ Steve Crum,
"Jewel of the Nile doesn't quite reach the heights of Romancing the Stone, but it's still a lot of fun and better than most sequels."
‑ Chuck O'Leary,
"According to legend, Catherine Zeta-Jones was 15 when this movie was made."
‑ Gregory Weinkauf, New Times
