Jack Colton (Michael Douglas) and Joan Wilder (Kathleen Turner) are living an easy-going life after their adventure together in "Romancing The Stone". Unfortunately, their relaxation leads to boredom, both with their lives and with each other. Wilder is invited to the Middle East to write about a sheik, but things end up going wrong, and it's up to Jack, along with enemy-turned-ally Ralph (Danny DeVito) to rescue her.
