Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie when Evie is putting the books back, she is standing on the ladder leaning against the bookshelf and the top rung of the ladder is at mid thigh. When she reaches and the ladder stands up the top rung is at breast level. (00:13:00)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Imhotep's sarcophagus first falls through the ceiling Jonathon is practicing his golf swing a few feet away from Rick and Evie. When the sarcophagus falls exactly where Jonathon has been standing, Jonathon is suddenly 20 feet away without having had a chance to move.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the group is waiting on Evie to decipher where the black book is, Jonathan runs out to get the car and it's pointing one way. When everyone runs out to get in the car, it's now pointing on the opposite direction. There's no way he could've turned the car around that fast.

Continuity mistake: When Imhotep's coffin is first found, O'Connell blows the sand out of the lock where the key is supposed to go. For the rest of the scene, the amount of leftover sand in the lock (particularly the arches) changes from shot to shot.

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.
