Critics and audiences-alike cheered this film from genre-smashing filmmaker Edgar Wright (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead). The reason? A story, brilliantly told, of one romantic slacker's quest to power up with love. Now who hasn't tried that at least once?
Meet charming and jobless Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera, Juno). A bass guitarist for garage band Sex Bob-omb, the 22-year-old has just met the girl of his dreams...literally. The only catch to winning Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead)? Her seven evil exes are coming to kill him.
Scott Pilgrim has never had a problem getting a girlfriend. It's getting rid of them that proves difficult. From the girl who kicked his heart's ass—and now is back in town—to the teenage distraction he's trying to shake when Ramona rollerblades into his world, love hasn't been easy. He soon discovers, however, his new crush has the most unusual baggage of all: a nefarious league of exes controls her love life and will do whatever it takes to eliminate him as a suitor.
As Scott gets closer to Ramona, he must face an increasingly vicious rogues' gallery from her past—from infamous skateboarders to vegan rock stars and fearsome identical twins. And if he hopes to win his true love, he must vanquish them all before it really is game over.
Play along in this awesome look at life, love, and trying not to get beat-up.

Fresh: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World becomes a fatal case of flash over substance. Pretty great flash, though.-Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald, January 31, 2011
Fresh: [It's] the funniest, most furiously action packed film of the year; one certain to be beloved by all the boys and girls who share the same passions and foibles as its foolish hero (myself included).-Simon Miraudo, Quickflix, October 21, 2010
Fresh: I can only say that where some see shallowness, I saw a witty interplay of surfaces and style.-Peter Bradshaw, Guardian [UK], September 02, 2010
Fresh: This one's geek heaven, a mash-up of comic books, computer games, grunge rock and slacker drama, all a little quicker and droller than anything of the kind before.-David Sexton, This is London, September 01, 2010
