Final film of Pete Postlethwaite. It was originally planned that Postlethwaite would have a larger role, but when director Nick Hamm saw how ill he was, he wrote him "a new role that allowed them to film around [his] physical needs and abilities... a very funny, ridiculous part". Three months later Postlethwaite came in to do voice work on the film. Hamm later commented: "It was very apparent when I saw him at that moment that there was no way that this guy was ever going to go on screen or stage again." See more »
At the bands first practice (in 1976) Ivan McCormick suggests playing a song by Dire Straits. Dire Straits recorded their first album in 1978, so none of them would have known any songs by Dire Straits, let alone have even heard of them. See more »
Comedy, drama, who cares? Great movie, even greater soundtrack!
I will start to be very honest: I watched this movie because i do not like Bono and the title of the movie seemed suggesting...
Nevertheless, i was presented with a great surprise! It's a really funny movie with some drama in it but overall it tells the story of anyone who was in a band i tried their luck into success. he competing with Bono only makes it more fun. The Soundtrack is awesome. Ben Barnes and Robert Sheehan actually sing most songs in the movie and they do a terrific work!
If you like music or ever been in a band i really recommend this movie. If not, it's still a funny story and a good adventure to watch, even if it is only for the soundtrack.
