I just watched The Mummy and The Mummy Returns this week, and now I remember why I was so obsessed with The Mummy when I saw it before. It's got everything a good movie needs--adventure, romance, exo...

I don't know why but Orlando seems to me like the kind of guy who'd live with a woman for 30 years rather than get married. Like Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell.
