Zoostation is on About A Boy

This has probably been posted about before, I dont really care one way or the other. Actually I dont even know why I'm posting this even, but they play Zoo Station in the movie About A Boy. How it's worked in is quite funny/clever. I liked it.

That's all I have to say about that.

It's actually quite an entertaining movie, which I was very suprised by.

Loved About A Boy. I just saw it last month, and no, not just to hear Zoo Station.

Sadly, I bet there are people who will go rent this movie just because they heard U2 is on during it.

I went and bought the DVD of this movie (which is great by the way) and to hear Zoostation all of a sudden was funny. Even my friends who have seen the movie mention to me (of course) "hey U2 is in that movie!!) hehe!

It's a lovely movie, and the U2 thing made it really fun. I wonder if Hugh Grant's a fan...

Great book, great movie, but the movie is waaaaaay off from the book. The book is based around Nirvana, grunge, and the death of Kurt Cobain. The book has Will blasting Nirvana to keep Marcus away--the movie has Zoo Station. Not that I didn't love that...I think Zoo Station is under-rated. I think it kicks ass, but I wish they wouldn't have made the movie so much more different than the book....

I think the change from the book to the movie was to keep with the times, because the movie is basically updated to our era (rather than the early 90s). Rap is currently the big thing, so it's logical they put that in.

Nick Hornby rules.

I freaked out in the theatre with my brother next to me, and started to hit him when the song came on. Then he thought it was the only reason I agreed to go to the movies with him but I swear I had no idea it was in there!
I agree ot was cool the way they used it and great movie as well!

I adore that movie. Still need to buy the book, though.

I thought it was awesome that they had it in there, as it's not really a well-known song.
