I don't read reviews before I see movies so I had no idea that Bono was part of this film. So one of the best parts of the movie for me was seeing this character on screen – the man can act on top of everything else – and saying, "Is that Bono?!" Sure enough, it is. He's far too cool.
I thought I might get tired of the song-as-dialogue schtick, but I didn't. The use of the songs is really compelling and it makes you think about them on a deeper level. I confess that I never paid really close attention to the meaning of some of the lyrics of the boys' tunes, but they're very insightful and capture a lot of human experience really beautifully.
