Seeking the name of this adventure film?!!!!

Release date:  90s/early 2000s

Lead actress:   White female in her 20s with Amelia Earhart bob haircut (Amy Adams version)

N Actor:    Middle Eastern male in his 20s/early 30s with black hair

Plot:  Woman is some kind of archaeologist.  In the beginning of the film the man comes and finds the woman to let her know that her father (a scholar) went missing.  Her father had went searching for some lost city/treasure or something.  The man and woman apparently have some romantic history.  She then goes with the man on a bread crumb trail to either the Middle East to find her father.  I know that at one point they went to a monastery and also was in a sheik's camp maybe.  I believe there is also another scholarly man (in his 20s) that goes along with them in the search.  This ensues in a bit of a love triangle.  They end up finding her father at the end.  In some cavern in the desert I think.  Not quite sure about the ending.

The movie is B/C rated.   It is bugging me to no end that I can't figure out the name to it! Please help!!!
