A shy student trying to reach his family in Ohio, a gun-toting tough guy trying to find the last Twinkie, and a pair of sisters trying to get to an amusement park join forces to travel across a zombie-filled America.
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

Scott Pilgrim incorrectly calls the first song Sex Bob-Omb plays in the movie as Knives and Young Neil are watching and the opening credits begin "Launchpad McQuack". Stephen Stills even takes a moment to tell Neil and Knives that's not the songs real name before being interrupted by Kim. This is a reference to the comic where Scott also calls a song "Launchpad McQuack" because he does not know the songs actual name. However the song in the movie does have an actual name and is called "We Are Sex Bob-Omb" on the movie soundtrack which is what Kim yells to interrupt Stephen. Because the song in the comics is never given a proper name fans have adopted "Launchpad McQuack" as the unofficial title. As for the origin of the name, Launchpad McQuack is a character from the Disney TV show DuckTales (1987) which also produced popular video games. See more »

We can see the box is from Celestial Seasonings; this brand of tea is well known for excluding the string and tag from its bag design to reduce waste. But as Ramona picks up her cup of tea, we can see a string and tag. See more »

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 »
