U2 Pop Culture Reference:
[Showtime: 25 seconds after start to 2:23] [Via e-mail] Large red sun at sunrise, view of a New York bridge, voiceover by the main character, Sara, "New York City, November 11, 2000", view of old-fashioned alarm clock going off at 7:00 a.m. sharp. Female hand hits alarm, then presses CD changer button, CD player spins a bit, then a tray slides in and immediately Mysterious Ways kicks off. Scene then goes to Sara pulling on her blue jeans, grabbing her gun (she's a cop), and then she's off and riding through New York City on her motorcycle. The song continues with the only other sound being her motorcycle when the camera is no flashing to various NYC landmarks. [Thanks to my buddy Oregon Darci for the submission.]


Besides U2, is it worth watching?
I have not seen it.
