** The first film was mostly an adventure film in the spirit of ''IndianaJones'' but works on the same level as a comedy. The sequels were still tongue-in-cheek but had more chase scenes and action scenes with entire supernatural armies being raised.

** When they first meet and Rick is in prison, Jonathan claims to Rick that he's a man preaching Christianity in Egypt and introduces Evy as his sister (although she actually is). Given Creator/StephenSommers' reported love of old adventure movies, this is almost certainly a reference to ''The African Queen''.
** The first film features a location called "Fort Brydon" where Rick and Evy are staying. This is a shoutout to the character of Colonel Brydon played by Sam Neill, who appeared in Sommers' earlier movie ''The Jungle Book''.

The first movie was a loose remake of the [[Film/TheMummy1932 original film]]. Instead of being straight horror, it was more of an action-adventure with a dash of comedy--not unlike the ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' or ''Film/TombRaider'' style of action movies. Despite being based on a straight-horror, ultimately the movies owe more to ''Indiana Jones'' than anything else, however they are very GenreSavvy and just run with it, making for effective light entertainment.

** Dialogue between Ardeth and Rick in the second film references ''TheManWhoWouldBeKing'', where a similar exchange is used by Freemasons to identify each other. Here, Ardeth identifies Rick as a fellow Medjai in spirit.

** ''The Mummy Returns'' is a case of [[InvertedTrope Sequel Goes Domestic]], taking place partly in England in contrast to the first film's entirely Egyptian setting.
