MONDO EXTRAS

Oh, Those Wacky Muslims

The Princess & the Marine

Meriam buys movie tickets for her friends. She refuses to see Stuart Little again, and instead buys tickets for First Knight. Oh, dear God. Meriam convinces her friends that there won't be any nudity and they enter the theater. They walk in and the movie has already started. Meriam spots the three Marines, to the surprise of no one watching this movie. I think Meriam's wearing leather pants. As Meriam goes to sit by the Marines, her friend stops her, because they can't sit by strange men. Meriam says she knows them and asks her friends to do her a favor. Her friend insists that she leave a seat between them and the men. Meriam sits down and introduces people. The girls ignore the guys. Hick says, "Houston, we've got a veil." Shut UP with the Houston jokes, Hick! Zack offers the girls some candy. He hands a box of candy to Meriam and their fingers touch. One of the friends makes a joke to Hick, so they're warming up, I guess. The movie continues.

On the screen, Richard Gere pours some water from a leaf into a lady's mouth. Wow, I'm glad I never saw this movie. Meriam gets up and walks out, clearing her throat when she passes in front of Zack, who gets up and follows her out. The friends are all in a tizzy. Trucker offers them some more candy.

Meriam buys a Sprite. Zack walks up and says that it's "important to stay hydrated in the desert." Wow, what a charmer. I can see how she fell for him. Zack steps up to the counter and orders a ton of food. Meriam asks if he's had many girlfriends. Zack says that he had one, in the second grade. Meriam asks if she looks like her, and if she was pretty. Zack says Meriam is prettier. The counter girl gives Meriam and Zack a dirty look. Zack wonders if he could be as bold as Meriam, since he's just a "rule-following Marine." Meriam says she follows the rules that she believes in. They stare at each other. The counter girl gives them another dirty look. They head back into the theater. The ticket taker gives them a dirty look. The counter girl gives them another dirty look. God, counter girl! Mind your knitting!

After the movie, Meriam's friends give her what for about talking to "that boy." The friends say that they won't be seeing those boys again. Meriam says that she will because he "makes [her] think." Yeah, with that scintillating conversation about Butterfingers. The Marines wave goodbye to the girls, but only Meriam waves back. Trucker says that he needs to talk to Zack.

Outside the mall, Meriam tells her friends what happened in the theater lobby. The Marines spy on them, at Trucker's insistence. Trucker informs Zack that Meriam's last name is Al Khalifa, and she's a member of the royal family. Zack doesn't believe it. Just then, a limo pulls up and picks up Meriam. Zack runs out while Trucker yells that Meriam is "a princess" and reminds Zack about the guy who got his head chopped off. Zack and Meriam stare at each other as the limo pulls away. Oh, I wonder what will happen. That's the thing about these movies based on true stories -- you already know the ending.
