Did You Know?


The scene where Ramona helps Scott fight Roxy Richter by controlling his arms, because he refuses to hit a girl, resembles a scene in the Free Comic Book Day issue of Scott Pilgrim. In that issue Scott refuses to fight a group of clones of pop singer Winifred Hailey. See more »


Near the end, when Scott sits on the swing with his sister, she calls him "little brother." Stacey is 18; Scott is 22. This is a semi-repeating joke from the original comic; Stacey is seen as the more mature, "older" sibling. See more »

Crazy, stupid, awesome video game fun.
30 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Scott Pilgram, a comic series unlike any other, is brought to insane life onto the big screen. When I first heard about this, I dismissed it as some lame movie, but to my surprise it isn't. This is one of the best movies with the word "versus" in the history of cinema. It's so absolutely mind-blowing that I can't tell if the author of the comics was tripping on acid when he made this.

Now on to the plot: Meet Scott Pilgram, a teenage boy who has his own rock band, been in a few relationships, lives in an apartment with a homosexual roommate, and happens to be the best fighter in town. When he meets a mysterious hair-color-changing girl named Ramona, Scott suddenly falls in love. However, to be with Ramona, he has to defeat her seven evil ex's, each with their own skills and powers, in awesome and hilarious video game style brawls to the death.

All I can say is that this film is pure freaking genius. Action-packed and incredibly stupid (in a good way). I wish I had fights like these, then my life would be complete! All the evil ex's are delightfully despicable, each having their own funny little quirks. This is a wonderful movie and I recommend that you check this out.
