It has one of the laughably worse cg effects ever, but does The Mummy Returns entertain on the same level as the first one? Nostalgia Critic looks at the laughable insanity.

    I’m seeing a lot of people saying the mummy didn’t notice Evie did not look like his lover due to taking the eyes of a nearsighted person. TLDR: it’s probably an astigmatism issue, not a nearsighted issue (that doesn’t mean the character didn’t have both eye issues). None of the comments I’ve seen claimed to be FROM a nearsighted person. I am nearsighted and I can tell you that we see better the closer we get to what we’re looking at (it’s in the name). Losing glasses/having no glasses would not mean he can’t tell she looks different considering how close he consistently gets to her. Having farsighted eyes also wouldn’t be a hinderance as he’d recognize the difference from a distance. The eye issue that everyone making these comments is probably referring to is astigmatism. Astigmatism causes blurry vision separately and in combination with both farsightedness and nearsightedness. With that, she’d be blurry to him at almost all visual ranges regardless of any other eye issues.

    Huh, this may be the first person reviewing this that doesn't put any focus on the mythological inaccuracies and the tripe of a trope of depicting every underworld god as if they were Satan...especially in a series where that exact same god was summoned the day in the last movie.

    The Mummy returns is one of the greatest examples as to why making movies should be about art, and not about making money. It's nothing but a cash grab. You buy the movie, you fund the company and you get some poor excuse to cover the bare minimum of your purchase. But yeah! That scene with the dynamite stick makes it all worth it for me. I decided that was what my money bought. The rest is just filler.

    Nefertiti and Anck-su-namun weren't sisters... I believe he makes this comment at the 18:19 minute mark. He said that Anck-su-namun was the Pharaoh's mistress and Nefertiti's sister, which would mean that the Pharaoh was in a relationship with his daughter. Did I hear that right?

      I have listened to it several times and Doug definitely says that Nefertiti is the daughter of the Pharoah and sister of Imhotep's lover, which is Anck-su-namun the Pharaoh's mistress. I feel like he misspoke or I misunderstood.

    I would definitely say that I enjoy the original much more than the mummy returns, I was about nine years old when this movie came out and I was not a big fan of the effects or the very limited amount of screen time the rock had despite many of the advertising showing him, which is most likely why he had a standalone film afterwards, I wouldn't say it's a terrible film it's a great action film for a General audience or kids but personally I appreciate the subtlety from the first film much more, but don't get me started on the 3rd film.

    OMG Doug... this movie was TERRIBLE! LOL!! You're spot on! And I really enjoyed the first one too. I think it sadly shows how a fun film can very easily turn into a moneygrabbing franchise in just one flip. The first one: yes, it was weak on plot, but it was what a fun action movie should be. Not taking itself seriously, just having a good time. The second one: way too far just throwing crap at the screen and hoping something sticks. Not enjoyable at all. The laughs in the first one were earned. The laughs in this one... were tragic.

    What makes a bad movie good is either it's so ridiculously badly made that it's fun to watch out of sheer curiosity and wonder at how it could have been made at all, and then there is the b movie that had low or no budget but despite that has character. So when you have a high budget movie with no character you have a movie that does not fit in the so bad it's good and most of the time such movies are painfully average. They might do for a single viewing and be somewhat interesting in places but ultimately they are forgettable.

    Ok Doug they're not sisters, they're step mom and step daughter because as the first film addressed Anuck Su namun is the Pharoahs mistress, and In that past life Evie was his daughter. Next Imhotep mistook Evie for his lover because of the poor eyes he took from mr. Burns who wore glasses, later on he doesn't try to reincarnate her in Evie he is using her as a sacrifice to bring Anuck Su namun back to life. Did you watch the movie Doug? I know you had the film playing but did you pay attention? Like I know it's a fun bad movie and in the right mood I also very much enjoy this film despite how dumb it is (honestly that sometimes makes it more fun) but you have to pay attention to the plot if you want to critique the films plot.

    This movie is pretty dumb, but I think that actually works in its favor. If you're after a good action movie, a good horror movie, a good comedy, or a good romance, you won't find it here. If you're looking for dumb b-movie cheese about on par with Freddy Vs Jason, Batman and Robin, Independence Day, Ice Pirates, or pretty much any given Tremors movie, this is exactly that. It's a great movie for when you've had a mentally exhausting day and just want to completely turn your brain off. Plus the soundtrack is actually really good.
