Lake Zurich is a village in Lake County, Illinois, United States, a northwest suburb of Chicago. The population was 19,631 at the 2010 census. The village is named after a water body named Lake Zurich which is completely located inside the village.

An Amusing note about Lake Zurich:

There is a moment in the space movie "Gravity," opening tonight at many suburban theaters, where George Clooney's astronaut character asks a question of the Dr. Ryan Stone character played by Sandra Bullock.

"Where's home, Dr. Stone?" Clooney's character says.

"Lake Zurich, Illinois," Bullock's character says.

"Is there somebody down there looking up, thinking about you?" Clooney's character asks.

The real-life answer to that reel-life question is a resounding "Yes." Lots of people in Lake Zurich are thinking about how quirky, cool and confusing it is to have Bullock's character mention their suburb in a critically acclaimed blockbuster that will be seen by millions of people.

"It's kind of random because Lake Zurich is not a very well-known town," said Madison Chudik, 22, who works as a waitress at the Koffee Kup, the suburb's iconic diner owned by her parents, Bob and Sheila Chudik. Customers can't think of a logical reason for Bullock's character to mention Lake Zurich.
