Trivia

Amy Bowles is a guitarist in multiple Toronto bands and served as the inspiration for Bryan Lee O'Malley's Envy Adams in the Scott Pilgrim comic series. She played the tied up "token female" in A Fistful of Fingers. While meeting for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010), Bowles happened to be riding her bicycle near Edgar Wright and O'Malley and said hello. O'Malley was speechless and only later explained his stupefaction at Wright's knowing her. See more »

A Fistful of Fingers (1995)
4 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

Before spoofing zombie movies and action flicks, Edgar Wright took a stab at the spaghetti western. It's an understandably amateurish production with zero budget and baby-faced actors. Rather than the character-driven homage format of his later films, here Wright takes more of a rapid-fire gag approach, with echoes of Mel Brooks, Looney Tunes, Monty Python and Zucker/Abrahams/Zucker. It's a style that demands to be judged on the quality of its jokes. And there are some pretty good ones... I especially liked the final showdown that starts with a debate about the end of BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID. However, a lot more gags fail than succeed. I'd say roughly 1 in 4 find their mark. It's not a very impressive ratio, but it could be a whole lot worse. If it's not exactly a comic masterpiece, at least it's generally watchable and supplies a few good laughs.
