Storyline

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.

Trivia

There are several subtle digs at aspects of hipster culture and the perceived pretentiousness of the music industry throughout the film (when an individual makes transparent efforts to appear smarter or ahead of everyone else):
  • After just witnessing Clash at Demonhead play on stage, Young Neil casually states that: "...you should see them live. They're much better live."


  • Upon Scott's first entrance into the Chaos Theater, Comeau can be overheard saying: "Their first album, is much better than... their first album."


During Scott's second entrance into the Chaos Theater, Comeau is saying to the same group of people: "...It's just that, the comic book is better than the movie." See more »

Goofs

It seems as if Scott's front door has a different handle when Wallace says "weren't you meant to take your fake high school girlfriend to the library a half-hour ago?" If you look closely, it's the bathroom door, not the front door. See more »

Crazy Credits

  • Anna Kendrick: Coffee stains and wet mug marks (Stacey Pilgrim works at a coffee shop)


  • Alison Pill: The words "one! two! three! four! (which Kim Pine typically yells to signal the start of a Sex Bob-Omb song) and the Sex-Bob-Omb logo


  • Aubrey Plaza: Black squares (which are used to obscure Julie Powers' mouth whenever she curses)


  • Brandon Routh: Bass guitars (Todd Ingram defeats Scott Pilgrim in a bass duel) and the number 3


  • Jason Schwartzman: The three triangle symbol of Gideon's company and a pair of glasses


  • Ellen Wong: A pair of knives similar to those she uses in the final fight.


  • Kieran Culkin: A cell phone status bar (Wallace can text while sleeping)


  • Johnny Simmons: Rectangles (mimicking the design on his shirt and his Nintendo DS


  • Michael Cera: Bass Strings


  • Mary Elizabeth Winestead: Three different shades of hair, denoting how many times her character changes hair color


  • Brie Larson: Broken hearts denoting her role as a femme fatale


  • Mark Webber: An acoustic guitar.

One of Edgar Wrights finest
22 June 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

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
