The Mummy Returns

Plot hole: Anubis Warriors can only be killed by being beheaded. But during the final battle, you see several are killed by simply being stabbed.

Plot hole: The timeline is off. Mummy started in 1923, yes, but it wasn't until three years later in 1926 that Evie and Rick actually met. Mummy Returns takes place in 1933 - only 7 years later, but they've got an 8 year old son. At that, Rick and Evie's son was born the year before they met... (00:04:45 - 00:42:35)

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. (00:30:15)

More quotes from The Mummy Returns

Trivia: When the pygmies fall into the river after they blow up the bridge, look closely. As the right hand end falls into the ravine, one end is glowing from the blast, and one of the pygmies climbs on top of it and rides it down, hand waving, exactly like the scene from "Dr. Strangelove, or How I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb". Must be deliberate, and definitely worth a look.

More trivia for The Mummy Returns

Question: After Alex translates the hieroglyphs as "This way to Scorpion King," Jonathan quietly responds by saying "It's just my work." What exactly did he mean by that? He's not a translator of ancient Egyptian like his sister Evie, so I don't think he literally meant "work" as his profession.

Chosen answer: He says, "this just might work" meaning he and Alex trying to bring Evie back using the book of the dead.
