Chloë Grace Moretz,
Scott Pilgrim plays in a band which aspires to success. He dates Knives Chau, a high-school girl five years younger, and he hasn't recovered from being dumped by his former girlfriend, now a success with her own band. When Scott falls for Ramona Flowers, he has trouble breaking up with Knives and tries to romance Ramona. As if juggling two women wasn't enough, Ramona comes with baggage: seven ex-lovers, with each of whom Scott must do battle to the death in order to win Ramona. Written by

When Scott tells Ramona that "everything is peaches and gravy", he is referencing two of Beck's songs: "Peaches and Cream" and "Nicotine and Gravy", both from the 'Midnite Vultures' album. See more »
Near the end, when Scott sits on the swing with his sister, she calls him "little brother." Stacey is 18; Scott is 22. This is a semi-repeating joke from the original comic; Stacey is seen as the more mature, "older" sibling. See more »
At the end, the words "The End" are shown in a Scott Pilgrim graphic novel-inspired font, and the Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game (2010) version of Scott Pilgrim 'defeats' the words as if they are a boss, complete with his Rockman-inspired 'Level Complete' animation. See more »

I was lucky enough too see this film during a test preview to an audience that weren't told what we were about too see. I was honestly expecting some odd film that really needed a lot of help but i was pleasantly surprised with how great this movie was.
The movie had everyone laughing, and i mean everyone, I've been too almost every Wright film and somehow the audience wasn't as amused as i was, but this time everyone loved it. I've never heard so much laughter in one cinema.
The jokes were fast and although silly, they weren't stupid which made for quite an enjoyable film. Wright's trademark quick cuts, and simple comedy made this film, i personally think if it were directed by anyone else it wouldn't have had the same effect.
The characters were well written and performed, every individual character fitted perfectly. The film had many scenes that were quite pointless but still quite funny for example the Seinfeld scene.
Apparently its based on a comic book series? I've never heard of them before but i certainly will look out for them now. If you're a fan of Edgar Wrights films or just good silly humour you will love this film.
Great comedy, definitely the best of 2010 8/10 Morgan
