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. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Trivia

The Canadian band Broken Social Scene wrote the two 4 second songs ("we hate you, please die" and "I'm so sad, so very, very, sad") for Crash and the Boys. Metric, another Canadian band wrote the song "Black Sheep" which is performed by Scott's rival band The Clash at Demonhead. See more »

Goofs

Scott orders a caramel machiatto at Second Cup. Starbucks sells caramel machiattos; Second Cup serves caramel corettos. However, this is probably a reference to the graphic novel stating Scott didn't realize until the age of 23 that all Second Cup entrances do not lead to the same interior. Scott probably didn't realize before this that all coffee shops do not have identical menus. See more »

Boring and extremely disappointing
28 October 2010 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I like / love Edgar Wright's other movies ("Shaun..." is easily one of the 10 best British films ever made and is endlessly quotable, and "Fuzz" so perfectly captures the vein of the genre it affectionately spoofs) as well as his TV show "Spaced" (final scene of first series filmed in my local!), so I was looking forward to this a lot; unfortunately I was really really disappointed.

I found the film flaccid (at least 30 mins too long) the characters unengaging and uninteresting, the drama non-existent (was there ever any doubt how it would turn out?) and most frustratingly of all just not funny enough. It was just boring.

Yes, I can see that all the video game stuff is clever, and the Flash Gordon reference was fun, but being clever is not enough to make a film good and I found it pretty annoying before too long.

I am not familiar with the source material but if this is faithful to it I can only conclude that it wasn't worth being turned into a movie. No-one ever made a good movie from lousy source material.

I am in my mid 30s so possibly older than the target audience, but I'm still astounded this rates so highly and is in the top 250 (at time of writing). It has been widely commented that this will polarize audiences, I'm just slightly sad I didn't find anything to like in it at all.
