Very Random U2 References in Movies

I was watching "Knocked Up" today, look what I found:


(Durning the "I gave everybody Pink Eye" scene)

I saw this a while ago in "Ferris Buellers Day Off"


And after I got home from Finals this year, I watched some obscure Freddy Kruger movie from 1989, some girl was getting killed in her bedroom, on the wall behind her was a "Lovetown" poster...I just thought that was kind of funny.


So, is there any other random U2 references in movies I have missed? LOL, I seem to have a gift at spotting them.

lol I noticed those too!!! It made me smile.

Right off the top of my head, I also remember the kids in Mrs. Doubtfire have an Achtung Baby poster. I can't remember anymore.

Not a movie, but in this advert for Cool Charm Deodorant over here, the girls in the apartment have an ATYCLB poster on their wall. Makes me smile

I spot U2 stuff also, and mostly when anything U2 is mentioned.

I was watching "The Brave One" with Jodi Foster the other day and there was an I-pod incident, a cop was going through the music and the i-pod contained Coldplay and U2..*LOL!! sounded like my i-pod

It's not a movie...but I was watching my DVD's of CSI:NY season 1 and at the beginning of the last episode Beautiful Day is the song that they are playing. I played the beginning about 3 times before I watched the rest of the episode

I remember a few years ago it seemed like every episode of Scrubs played a U2 song. I remember Beautiful Day was a big deal (it was almost part of the storyline), as well as Stuck when their car was flying through the air in slo-mo...for some reason.

This isn't from a movie either, but another US TV Show now cancelled; THE GILMORE GIRLS

I love that show! The writers were U2 fans ...

I think this was the beginning of season 3 or 4 after Rory graduated from High School and they went backpacking through Europe, including Ireland. They made numerous references in that episode about spending a whole day "Staking out the Clarence Hotel waiting for Bono to show up" hahaha!!
There are many other episodes with sly Bono references in them..like an imaginary list of rock stars Loralei wanted to marry and the B man was number 1.

I am sad it got cancelled

I just saw "Tropic Thunder" last night, and Matthew McConaughey's character was reading the Vanity Fair issue with Bono and Condoleezza Rice on the cover.
