Description

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is a finger-blistering time capsule of right now, yet in a hundred years it will still be so crammed with charm, wit, brio, and exuberance it will still be irresistible. Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera, Superbad) is an accidental heartbreaker, a Canadian slacker who obsesses over the girls who've dumped him but hardly realizes how he's dumped other girls. But everything else in his life (including playing bass in a band) fades to insignificance when he lays eyes on Ramona (Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Live Free or Die Hard), his deadpan pixie dream girl. Unfortunately, Ramona has some serious baggage: seven deadly exes, and Scott must battle them all if he wants to date Ramona. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is saturated in pop culture, particularly video games. Many events make almost no sense, but it doesn't matter--sheer narrative ferocity and glee of invention sweep the viewer along. Cera pushes his geek/dork dreamboat persona to new heights of sweet twee-ness; if this movie doesn't shoot him into the stratosphere, we live in a cold, unfeeling universe, bereft of justice. The whole supporting cast (including Kieran Culkin, Jason Schwartzman, Anna Kendrick, Chris Evans, Brandon Routh, and a host of less familiar but excellent young actors) plays every moment for all it's worth. This movie is supremely uncool and passionate, which makes it essential viewing. --Bret Fetzer

Movie Critics
Box Office
4 stars out of 5 -- "SCOTT PILGRIM is a blast!....A wildly comic journey into the head of a true original."
Pete Hammond (27 Jul 2010, )
Empire
5 stars out of 5 -- "[It's the] coming-of-age story that ultimately makes SCOTT PILGRIM work, and it's that that will make it resonate long after the dazzle of its innovative filmmaking has faded."
Helen O'Hara (7 Jan 2010, )
Entertainment Weekly
"The movie, with its charming visual tropes, is a romantic comedy that moves at the speed of texting....It's a true original..." -- Grade: B+
Owen Gleiberman (20 Aug 2010, )
Hollywood Reporter
"Edgar Wright has successfully reproduced the imagery and worldview of Byran Lee O'Malley's graphic novel, itself a mash-up of ordinary characters lost in a world of manga, video games, music videos and comic book iconography."
Kirk Honeycutt (23 Jul 2010, )
Los Angeles Times
5 stars out of 5 -- "Ramona is an intriguing character, handled in intriguing ways by the very promising Winstead....There are pop culture references galore thrown into the mix..."
Betsy Sharkey (13 Aug 2010, )
New York Times
"Its speedy, funny, happy-sad spirit is so infectious that the movie makes you feel at home in its world even if the landscape is, at first glance, unfamiliar."
A. O. Scott (18 Aug 2010, )
Premiere
"[I]t works because it's a simple 'boy meets girl' story full of sincere emotional pangs."
Premiere Staff (13 Aug 2010, )
Total Film
4 stars out of 5 -- "Breathlessly rushing around, SCOTT PILGRIM is witty, buzzy and clever....The action scores a big power-up from ex-men Chris Evans and Brandon Routh..."
Total Film Staff (1 Oct 2010, )
USA Today
3 stars out of 4 -- "The film fuses an indie/punk rock sensibility with comic-book violence and video game energy, mixed with quirky humor and sassy pop culture references."
Claudia Puig (13 Aug 2010, )
Variety
"With Michael Cera in the title role, twentysomethings and under will swiftly embrace this original romancer..."
Peter Debruge (23 Jul 2010, )
