Fans of Romancing the Stone will be happy to know that its sequel has gotten an upgrade with this special edition disc of The Jewel of the Nile. It has received a new, anamorphically enhanced video transfer that improves a bit on the previous DVD edition of the title. The audio portion of the disc retains the same Dolby 4.0 Stereo track that its predecessor has, and the mix is a solid one. There's also an array of extras for the film's fans. First up is a commentary with director Lewis Teague; despite periodic gaps of silence, it's an amiable, chatty track that offers plenty of interesting behind-the-scenes details. There are also six deleted scenes. None of these bits are revelatory, but fans will find them interesting enough to watch once. The package also includes two featurettes, one about the choices the filmmakers made in mapping out the sequel's plotline and another that is a more comprehensive making-of piece. The latter featurette is particularly interesting, as all the participants are candid about the problems involved in making the film. The package is rounded out by a theatrical trailer and an eight-page booklet of notes included in the disc case. All in all, any fan who liked The Jewel of the Nile will enjoy this special edition disc.

Definitely worth seeing to catch the greatest 'New Vaudeville' performers at their peak: Avner 'the Eccentric' Eisenberg in the title role and the Flying Karamazov Brothers (Magid, Patterson, Nelson, Williams & Furst) as the Sufis.
