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

Like the graphic novel, Scott Pilgrim is seen wearing a t-shirt with the letters "SP" in a heart. While these are Scott's initials, the design is the logo for the band Smashing Pumpkins, an influence of creator Bryan Lee O'Malley. Scott is also seen wearing a "Zero" t-shirt, an iconic shirt often worn by Smashing Pumpkins lead singer Billy Corgan. Additionally, one of the film's acts is titled "The Infinite Sadness" which is a reference to the Smashing Pumpkins' 1995 album, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. See more »

  • Brandon Routh: Bass guitars (Todd Ingram defeats Scott Pilgrim in a bass duel) and the number 3
  • Jason Schwartzman: The three triangle symbol of Gideon's company and a pair of glasses
  • Ellen Wong: A pair of knives similar to those she uses in the final fight.
  • Kieran Culkin: A cell phone status bar (Wallace can text while sleeping)
  • Johnny Simmons: Rectangles (mimicking the design on his shirt and his Nintendo DS
  • Michael Cera: Bass Strings

What else do you want? Great film. The type of extraordinary film that draws one to the cinema. I own the DVD and it is getting a workout. The fantasy, the jokes, the romance, the legs, the feminine hair. Yeah. I am a fan.
