Scott Pilgrim (Cera) is a jobless, aimless 22 year-old who plays in a garage band and is dating a high-schooler (Wong). When he sees Ramona Flowers (Winstead) he falls head over heels – but he’ll have to fight her seven Evil Exes in order to win her hand. Fight!
It’s heartfelt, hilarious and a highly satisfying adaptation of the book. You don’t have to be a geek to adore it; you just have to remember being young. But one word of caution: Hollywood, don’t try to make a hundred of these. It won’t work.
