Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy
Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy is the last of the team's vehicles for Universal-International. Stranded in Egypt, Bud and Lou hire themselves out as travelling companions to archeologist Kurt Katch.

The last scene finds Costello being menaced by three mummies, two of them bogus. ~ Hal Erickson,… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Pure shtick, played by men who absolutely did not have the energy or the motivation to do their shtick well."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"One of those movies that explain why Bud and Lou went out of style."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Probably no worse than the usual Abbott and Costello comedies in the long running series, it just seems worse."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"The boys were really winding down with this one..."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Abbott and Costello were really the ones able to finally kill Universal's classic monsters."
