During the first fight scene, Young Neil is wearing a Sloan t-shirt. Chris Murphy, vocalist and bassist for the band Sloan, served as the music performance supervisor by making sure the actors knew how to play their own instruments for the camera. See more »
In the Bass Battle scene, the bass that Todd Ingram plays does not have enough frets to play the notes in the last part of his solo. See more »
Possibly the happiest kids film since The Muppets: Christmas Carol?
I imagined that it would be hard for Michael Cera to retain the standards set by the first Edgar Wright film when I heard that he was making this one. Baring in mind that I was hardly the imagined demographic for the first outing (I'm 24 years old and not by nature a sentimental person) I could not believe that this movie could ever recapture the magic and sheer exuberance of SEAN OF THE DEAD. But it did and then some! After the first ten minutes of the film, I was so engaged in Scott Pilgrim's story telling and the characters that any fear vanished. Featuring some truly funny moments delivered by some very good young actors and once again brilliantly performed by Cera, the Scott Pilgrim film is for me, as much in league with modern children's classics as the much hyped Harry Potter!
I found the storyline joyful and uplifting without being saccharine sweet and the film boasts some wonderful cameos. Ellen Wong steals the show as the rough voiced yet somehow glamorous hit woman hot on the heels of Scott Pilgrim's delightfully over the top villains. If I had to make any fault at all with this film it is at Mary Elizabeth Winstead's unexpected casting and sometimes overly enthusiastic gushing, although generally Winstead is a decent actress she remains quite unlikeable for the first half of this film as the over-worked yet underwhelming girlfriend character. A stunning turn from Dame Kieran Culkin as she proves she still has the power to take even the smallest of roles and turn it into a wonderfully amusing, well performed piece.
