Everyone is hot
There's a reason everyone of a certain generation grew up desperately attracted to "bad boys" with middle parts. I've got two words for you: Rick O'Connell. In The Mummy, Rick O'Connell, played by Brendan Fraser, is a treasure hunter who agrees to take Evelyn Carnahan, a librarian and Egyptologist, and her brother to Hamunaptra, the ancient Egyptian city of the dead, where tons of inscriptions and treasure are probably buried. Rick is Brendan Fraser at his most swashbuckling: he wears the traditional early-1900s adventurer uniform the whole time, which is basically a shirt that won't be buttoned all the way up, some tight pants, and a leather shoulder holster. Occasionally a scarf.
Evelyn, on the other hand, is played by Rachel Weisz, who has always been stunning, and who is particularly so in this movie. Evie and Rick's chemistry is unbearable; from their very first meeting, you want desperately for them to kiss, and then they DO kiss, and you spend the whole movie wanting them to kiss AGAIN. And then there's the scene by the fire where they ALMOST kiss, and you're sitting there on the edge of your couch clutching a pillow without realizing what you're doing, and you've forgotten about the bowl of ice cream you made for yourself which is melting on the table because the movie is TOO GOOD.
And then there's horseback-riding Medjai warrior Ardeth Bay (Oded Fehr), who was supposed to be tattooed all over before Stephen Sommers saw what he looked like and said, no, hiding that incredible face would be a DAMN CRIME.
