The Mummy Returns

Continuity mistake: In the British Museum, when Rick and Ardeth are saving Evie, Rick gives her a .45 pistol and they start to shoot the guards, her pistol fires once and the slide locks back meaning the pistol had no ammo, but she keeps firing as if the magazine was still full.

Continuity mistake: When Rick is trapped in the bathroom, he finds John underwater in a bathtub full of suds. As John climbs out of the tub, his body naturally is covered in suds. However, when he and Rick jump out the window and start running away, John's body is completely suds-free.

Continuity mistake: When Rick and Ardeth Bay save Evie from the warehouse after Imhotep is resurrected, there are four mummies chasing them when they get on the double-decker bus. Rick shoots one of the mummies and "kills" it. He shoots another one in half and goes to the top of the bus to fight another one. The top portion of the mummy that got shot in half then fights Ardeth Bay. Evie kills the mummy that got shot in half and the top part of the bus gets torn off by the bridge and kills the mummy Rick is fighting. John stops the bus and they all sign with relief. Whatever happened to the fourth mummy chasing them?

Continuity mistake: In the beginning when Brendan Fraser is looking around the tunnels he turns around to see his kid and they scream. As they are screaming they are at eye level but when a few seconds later when they are standing the kid is like 2 feet shorter then Brendan Fraser, and if you look around there is nothing for the kid to have stood on.

Continuity mistake: Before Fraser and the gang reach the Oasis, the falcon is sent back to the human army that is advancing in order to stop the Anubis horde. There are literally tens of thousands of men advancing. Yet after the first battle with the Anubis warriors, the human force is decimated. Only a ragged line of warriors remains for the final charge of the Anubis warriors. But there are no human bodies or horses in the sand.

Continuity mistake: In the first movie, Rick (Brendan Fraser) has a tattoo of the eye of Horus on the back of his right hand (easier to see in the theatres than on the video, but if you look closely you can see it several times throughout the film). However, in the sequel the tattoo is gone and now he has that tattoo on his forearm, which he didn't have in the first one. Considering the time period, tattoo removal wasn't possible.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, when Imhotep is hanging off the ledge, if you look at his arm and his hand, there isn't any pressure being put on them, almost like he's just standing behind it, with his arms resting on the ledge.

Continuity mistake: During the ride on the double decker bus. Rick is fighting the mummy by punching him in the face. The mummy's tongue and face are a grey color. Right before the mummy gets killed on the low bridge we cut to his expression and his tongue is pink.

Continuity mistake: When Rick and Ardeth are saving Evie from the library Ardeth manages to shoot the chemicals and blow them up. When you see him shoot them from Ardeth's view Imhotep has disappeared, as he was standing next to the chemicals before they were shot.

Continuity mistake: During the first battle, the Scorpion King is fighting with his sword in his right hand and his shield in the left. For one instant, they change arms. I assume the film must have been reversed.

Continuity mistake: In the first big catfight between Anck-Su-Namun and Nefertiri (in Seti's throne room), look carefully when Nefertiri is knocked down the first time. Her weapons fall to the ground; however, when she bounds back to her feet, the knives have magically reappeared in her hands.

Continuity mistake: When Rick jumps over the fire to save Evie in the museum, her arms are tied together. The instant he hits the board and the camera is at another angle, her arms are free. Then when she falls over his shoulder, they are bound again.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the bad guys ask John Hannah about the bracelet of Anubis (and he has no idea what they're talking about), they throw him on a chair, and one of the guys in red holds a knife to his throat. In the shots from the front, he also grabs John Hannah's hair with his other hand, in almost all of the shots from behind, he doesn't.

Continuity mistake: When they arrive at the Magic Carpet, in the very frame where the camera is on Rick and you can hear Izzy lock the doors, Jonathan is seen walking towards Rick, and he gets very close to him. The camera then cuts to the locked doors, and when it cuts back to Rick and Evie you can see Jonathan walk all the way from the car door back towards Rick - for a second time.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Ardeth (Oded Fehr) waves goodbye to the Medjai leaders, at Izzy's place from the front his right arm is raised. They show a behind shot and his arm is lowered. They go back to the front and his arm is still raised.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Evie and Rick are fighting the bad guys in their home in England, Evie does a cartwheel. Her skirt rides up, and she is wearing stockings. A few seconds later, they all rush outside and Evies skirt rides up again and she is now wearing tights.

Continuity mistake: During the long shot when the cast are racing across Tower Bridge in the double decker bus, right in the middle of the screen you can see the twinkling lights of a distant skyscraper which looks suspiciously like Canary Wharf, which of course had not yet been built in 1935. Its construction was in fact not completed until 1990.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end, where the pyramid is sucking up the oasis, and everyone is jumping on the dirigible, Jonathan's slash on his chest from fighting Anck-Su-Namun has mysteriously healed, and there is no blood, although his shirt is still cut.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When we first enter the museum there is a long shot of the resurrection area with Evie at the top of the screen lying on a wooden stretcher. She is conscious and seen moving around to adjust the ropes. In the next shot, she is unconscious and is only woken once she is bumped on the table.

Mistakes

When Brendan Fraser & his son are running to reach the pyramid before the sun hits it, the sunrise line approaches the pyramid along the ground, but the sun would naturally have hit the pyramid at the top first and worked its way down to the ground. [Some people insist on trying to correct this - think of it this way. If the sun's illuminating the ground from way up in the sky, what's keeping something higher up than the ground in darkness?]

Trivia

In the tomb, Alex knocks over the columns the same way Evie knocked over the bookcases in "The Mummy."
