Now I know why "Van Helsing" didn't have any mummies in it. The director used them all up making the infinitely superior movie The Mummy a few years ago. It was recommended by such diverse people as the antidote to "Van Helsing" that we took a flyer on it for our Friday Family Movie Night. The Mummy is everything that a summer movie is supposed to be ... great special effects, good looking stars (Brendan Fraser for me, the chief of the Pharaoh's bodyguards for Rose), semi-rational plot, quips, funny side kicks, and disgusting creatures ... in this case flesh-eating scarab beetles. I know that most of America already saw this movie but maybe its time to check it out again or if you inexplicably missed, it as we did, give it a whirl.
