I remember that, I saw it in the movie theater, good film, a little melodramatic at times, but it is a Hugh Grant film, more importantly, I love the Soundtrack by Badly Drawn Boy

One thing that really struck me about 'Zoo Station' when hearing it on the big screen, was just how big a song it is -- it's like a classic U2 song in that it really just overflows with exploding guitars and choruses. It could have been on Joshua Tree minus the trashy beats.

What's also funny is that this is the second Hugh Grant movie with a U2 reference.. the other being Four Weddings...



I think someone needs to interview ole Hugh Mungo about his U2 fandom, yes?

Well.. let's see...

Ah yes..

When Charlie and "Duckface" are arguing at one of the weddings bc he had sat at a table with her mother.. they get to discussing their relationship, during which she says:

"I thought U2 was a submarine"

"Well, you know, you're right.. Their music has a very naval quality."

I completely missed that! I'm going to have to rent it again, (hee hee). Thank-you.
