Storyline

After retrieving the Crystal Skull in Utah, Flynn Carsen receives a map in the mail with the secret location of King Solomon's Mines. When the scroll is stolen, Judson explains the power of the Key of Solomon's book and assigns Flynn to retrieve the map. The map is useless without the legend piece to decipher it, which is located in Volubilis near the Roman ruins in Morocco. Flynn heads to Casablanca to the ruins where he is chased by a group of mercenaries leaded by General Samir. They too want to find the location of King Solomon's mines. Flynn teams-up with Professor Emily Davenport working in the dig and they escape from General Samir and his men. While traveling to Gedi, they save the local Jomo from death and the trio faces a dangerous journey through the wild Africa. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

In the first scene of "The Librarian - Quest for the Spear" (at the recreation of the pyramid), Flynn states that he has 22 degrees; his professor states that the degree he was currently working on was signed off. This now makes a total of 23 degrees. Flynn states at least twice in "Return to King Solomon's Mines" that he has 22 degrees. In addition, Emily states early in the film that she has 25 degrees and is beginning work on her 26th in June; at the end of the film, Flynn says that she has 25 PhDs. See more »

Flynn Carson is a seasoned Librarian after a year on the job.
3 December 2006 | by kaygeessSee all my reviews

While Carson has served a year a Librarian he still retains his delightfully nerdy quality. This made-for-TV movie is a film lover's spoof, not meant to be taken too seriously. The sequel holds up well thanks, in part, to the return of Jane Curtin, Bob Newhart and Olympia Dukakis, but Wyle is the heart of the film. His comic/dashing hero is in the same vein as Brandon Fraser in "The Mummy."

While a number of lines in "The Mummy Returns" came off as "lame" to me (an admittedly subjective judgment) I didn't really find any truly "lame" lines in this sequel and there were many really funny moments. I was afraid I might be disappointed, but my fears were groundless.
