I entered Max mode while stuck as a hieroglyphic in "in the tomb" when I exited Max mode, i suddenly had a view of the floor and could not move nor interact with anything. The only option i had to was to enter max mode and look around and/or exit the level. When I re entered film reel, i was still stuck. The only way i could find around it was to restart my game :(
To add to this, I discovered teh glitch after going into max mode and selecting the ventriloquist dummy before the glitch triggered.
