When an unconfident young woman is cursed with an old body by a spiteful witch, her only chance of breaking the spell lies with a self-indulgent yet insecure young wizard and his companions in his legged, walking home.
Manny, Sid, and Diego discover that the Ice Age is coming to an end, and join everybody for a journey to higher ground. On the trip, they discover that Manny, in fact, is not the last of the wooly mammoths.
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

Ramona's weapon, a giant sledgehammer, may be a nod to the term 'hammer-space'. When a character stores an item too big to fit into a bag, the item is said to be located in the hammer-space within that bag. This is very commonly done in video games. Ramona actually wields a giant hammer from hammer-space in the film. See more »
Scott orders an item from Amazon.ca, and Ramona, an Amazon.ca employee, delivers it. Amazon.ca ships goods via regular mail or Canada Post's Xpresspost system. Ramona delivers the goods using a short-cut through Scott's subconscious, so some leeway must be allowed. If such a fast, cheap delivery system existed, Amazon would surely adopt it. 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 »
This is the perfect movie with perfect cast. I don't even like Michael Cera much, although he was fortunate enough to be in one of the most clever TV shows ever. He's become typecast, but this is one movie which breaks the mold. (Or at least it ignores it and does its own thing.) Edgar Wright has also directed the great movies "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz," and he doesn't disappoint with this. I haven't read the anime series this was based on, but I don't really want to, because this is so much better than it could ever be. To be completely honest, the only thing I don't like his how fast Scott's 'pee bar' empties. Nobody can pee that fast, geez.
But yeah, everyone should watch this, especially video game fans.
