The "Gone With the Wind" of "Male Emo Bonding" Epics: Good for *older* kids
My entire family enjoyed the movie, but it's NOT for younger kids. My 6 year old daughter did not like it as much as the rest of us, mostly, I think, because she called it "stinking rubbish"! It is the type of film Walt Disney Studios used to turn out routinely; a type of PG-13 film generates way more capital than any "R" rated tripe.
This movie is called Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, but really it's Scott Pilgrim's show, all the way. The charming lead reminds me a lot of Dennis the Menace, getting into all sorts of pickles! He means no harm, but he really does bring chaos and mayhem along with him wherever she goes. It's cute, but not especially cohesive. The cast is all very good
no bad acting gumming up the works. I found it surprisingly heavy at
times, almost like it was trying too hard to be taken seriously. A blessing for highly gifted children who have been frustrated by schools that have chosen to marginalize them rather than attend to their needs.
The EMO STYLE is what also made the film. There isn't that much humor but just the right amount to make this a feel good movie. A must see for everyone (it is not just for girls!) I might add that "Knives" Chou, the 17 year old high school GF, is probably the funniest east Asian stereotype since Mr. Yunioshi of Breakfast at Tiffany's. But Knives is portrayed in a way that is funny without being hardly offensive at all (except toward Asians, of course).
