Corrected entry: When Evie discovers Imhotep's body she says he is 'juicy', and thus comes to the conclusion that he was mummified alive. I'm sure that there were more Egyptians buried after Imhotep and would die at the same time he does, because he would only survive a few days after mummification. Therefore he would not still be 'juicy', but dry and brittle.
Corrected entry: On the plane, Ardeth was strapped to the right wing and Jonathan was on the left. In the scene where Imhotep has just created the sand cloud, just after Evelyn says, "You'll kill them." You see the plane's left wing dip, and Ardeth Bay and Jonathan have switched wings. You can tell because Ardeth is in black and Jonathan is in white. Yet, when the plane goes down in the next scene, they are back on the correct wings. (01:34:05)
Corrected entry: When the fat guy (along with the others) descends into the mummy preparation area he is no longer wearing his fez (tarboosh) and dirty coat.
Corrected entry: When Jonathon has a scarab crawling into his arm, Rick rips Jonathon's shirt and we see that the scarab has reached his shoulder. Rick cuts it out of Jonathon's upper arm, but later when we see Jonathon, he has a bandage on his forearm.
Corrected entry: Evie and Jonathan are supposed to be siblings, yet Jonathan speaks with a Scottish accent and Evie doesn't. They don't appear to have been raised apart, so how come they don't have the same accent?
Corrected entry: The pilot is wearing an unidentifiable cap badge (it's certainly not RAF). He is also wearing his pilot's brevet (wings) on his right breast pocket; the RAF, like most air forces, wear their brevets above their left breast pocket. The RAF presence in Egypt was still very much there in the 1920s: there were several stations, not simply one elderly pilot who had been forgotten about. (01:10:05)
Corrected entry: In the scene where Jonathan has read the commands from the golden book and stops the zombies with the shields from killing O'Connell, the zombies then turn towards Imhotep. He orders them to kill O'Connell. The subtitles say "Destroy him." twice, and then the third time the subtitle says "I command you to destroy him", but Imhotep verbally says the same exact command all three times. (01:48:40)KINGOFNY
Corrected entry: Through your tongue goes a major blood line, if the tongue is cut you will bleed a lot. The man whose tongue is taken by the mummy is not bleeding at all, which perhaps could be explained by some mummy power. But when Imhotep is being executed they begin by cutting his tongue off and then bandaged him. For one thing the bandage should have been blood-covered but more importantly Imhotep would have suffocated/drowned on his own blood when laid down.
Corrected entry: If the book of Amun-Ra was made out of gold, then there is no way Jonathan or anyone else could have lifted it. (01:42:35)
Corrected entry: In the scene where the Magi are paddling their canoes, just before the fire on the boat, you can hear the call of a night bird called a Whip-poor-will (Caprimulgus voviferus). Whip-poor-wills inhabit the Eastern half of the North American Continent, not Egypt. (00:25:00)
Corrected entry: When Hamunaptra is collapsing in on itself, and they escape from it, you can see rocks as big as mountains coming out of the ground and collapsing onto the city. Rick and company are running like their lives depend on it, yet the camels are sitting there carelessly, not bothered at all, as if things like that were a daily occurrence. (01:54:50)
Corrected entry: The Mummy takes a man's eyes, but the man needs glasses for him to see clearly and the mummy can see perfectly well without glasses afterwards. (01:01:25 - 01:04:00)
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Jonathan picks up the scarab, it breaks open and the beetle inside starts to crawl under his skin. We see Brendan Fraser tear Jonathan's shirt and cut the beetle out of him. However, in the very next scene, we see Jonathan walking into the temple, his shirt is intact and there is no blood to be seen. (01:37:05 - 01:38:30)
Evelyn: You know, nasty little fellows such as yourself always get their comeuppance.
Beni: They do?
Trivia: An explanation for why there is no salt acid booby-trap protecting the gold book like there was protecting the black book. In the missing scene some of Imhotep's priests burst through the floor/ground and attack Jonathan and Rick, who get tossed aside. The priests then open the gold book's hiding place and get burned all up by the salt acid. You can even see when Rick grabs the TNT that there is smoke rising from the hole.
