I saw Scott Pilgrim vs. the World on Sunday. It was a surprisingly pleasant comic romp through a kind of coming-of-age and boy-wins-girl kind of motif. I know what you’re thinking and I’ll come back to it on the boy-wins-girl motif.
Basically, the movie is super campy with lots of pieces that don’t make sense a la Shaolin Soccer. Scott faces the seven evil exes in order to date the young woman that he is interested in dating. What constitutes a fight is heavily warped with “what would be funnier?” kinds of twists. I’m a particular fan of Jason Schwartzman’s comic acting style and his involvement was the clue that brought me to the movie in the first place.
Oh, and spoiler alert.
