The Mummy Returns

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...

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 mummies that attack during the scene on the doubledecker bus are supposedly pretty tough and can smash through brick and masonry walls. However, during the fight just before the bus hits the bridge, the mummy fighting Fraser acts like a normal person. The two grapple together, and the mummy has his hands around Fraser's throat and tries to strangle him. Not only does Fraser fend him off, he even breaks his grip and dives to the floor before the bridge hits. Pretty wimpy for a mummy that just tore through a steel bus roof.

Suggested correction: The mummy wasn't trying to strangle him; he was trying to do what Imhotep would do in terms of sucking his life out, (he even opens his mouth really wide to try and do this but Rick kept interrupting by punching him). In terms of being "wimpy", Rick just poked him in his eye sockets and the mummy reacted. Then Rick hit him before falling down when they were approaching the low bridge, and all of that was a surprise to the mummy; he had no time to react, especially when he couldn't even see what they were about to hit.

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?]
