Deliberate mistake: When Rick and Imhotep battle man-to-man at the end, in one shot above them you see steam blasting from the side of the screen. Problem is that when the angle changes, it's clear that area is just empty space, so the steam came from nowhere. (The DVD commentary mentions that they always had people with flame-throwers and steam-machines right off-screen to blast fire and smoke to make certain scenes more dramatic).
Factual error: 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?] (01:34:40)
