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>

Fun Film
13 June 2020 | by Dexter-hangaeSee all my reviews

There is some good fantasy, cool special effects and thin pretty girls who show a little bit of their attractive bodies. More than that this film is original. I don't know what else i could compare this to. In a competitive area there is a grand event and it takes my breath away.
