Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World

While the story behind Scott Pilgrim vs the World is based on a comic book series, it plays out more like a video game adaptation. Its over the top action and fight scenes are firmly based in a world of non-reality. Casting Michael Cera as the love interest and hero of the piece also keeps things off in never never land.


Scott Pilgrim (Cera) is the bass player in a garage band called Sex Bob-omb and the movie revolves around his trials and tribulations with girlfriends, ex-girlfriends and ex-girlfriend’s exes. The film uses a number of irreverent devices to shake things up and this playful approach keeps things light and frothy.

Sex Bob-omb are about to play the biggest gig in their short life (a battle of the bands competition) and stand a good chance of winning if Scott can just keep his head in the game. This isn’t easy when his latest girlfriend’s seven exes are all out to kill him. Any film that has Cera as a pugilist hero can’t be taken seriously and this film tries its best to be anything but that.

This is pure escapism with a distinct tilt towards a young to very young audience but the humour is broad enough for all ages and its quirkiness never really wears out its welcome. The music also adds a lot to the fun.
