The Mummy Returns

Continuity mistake: After the cast makes a getaway on the double decker bus, the little kid jumps on John's back and says, "Nice job." When the shot cuts, he is still there. In the next shot, the bus is pulling over to the side of the road and the boy is not on John's back anymore.

Continuity mistake: When Rick turns around finds Alex, Alex falls back and his hat falls off and rolls back a few inches, resting a few inches from the top of his head. However, after Rick says his name, it cuts back to Alex and the hat is practically under his head, almost behind his back.

Continuity mistake: When Alex is on the train talking to Imhotep. His brown jacket is first worn but then its very snugly (depending on the shot.) This is most noticeable when he tells Imhotep that his dad is going to kick the mummy's arse. (00:53:50)

Continuity mistake: When Rick jumps off the dirigible to save Evy after she has the visions, he is holding onto the railing. However, in the next shot, Jonathan and Ardeth are the ones holding onto Rick.

Continuity mistake: During the scene when Imhotep controls the water and raises it up he starts with straight arms, as shown in the shot with his back facing the camera. However in the next several shots showing him from the front he has bent arms, then straight arms from the back again.

Continuity mistake: When Imhotep is talking to Alex O'Connell on the train through the black mask, his teeth are perfectly white and straight. A few seconds later, when Imhotep takes the mask off to show Alex, his teeth are like the mummy's - brown, green, jagged, and decayed.

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. (00:39:47)
