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

Throughout the film when Scott faces an evil ex, a number corresponding to them appears:
  • Evil Ex 1 = Alpha symbol on his shoulders.


  • Evil Ex 2 = 2 on the trailer. 2 on the car. A small tattoo of 2 on his neck. His belt has two X's, XX.


  • Evil Ex 3 = 3 on his shirt. Also 3 on the trash cans in the alley.


  • Evil Ex 4 = Number 4 on the night club door.


  • Evil Ex 5 & 6 = Amp system goes up to 11 (5+6).


  • Evil Ex 7 = When Scott goes to see Gideon it mentions it is level 7.


When Gideon makes his sword appear, all of the stats read "x7". He also makes a reference to the gum he swallows to being in his digestive tract for 7 years. The final score after Scott defeats Gideon is 7,000,000,000
  • Scott himself is seen wearing (and drinking) "Zero" a number of times.

Crazy Credits

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 »

The "Gone With the Wind" of "Male Emo Bonding" Epics: Good for *older* kids
2 July 2011 | by (Gerst) – See all my reviews

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).
