Scott Pilgrim Vs. The WorldMy face hurts and do you wanna’ know why it hurts? It’s because of the goofy perma-grin I’ve been wearing from the minute Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World ran its’ opening credits and instantly charmed me with its awesomeness!

Scott and Ramona - AWKward!Michael Cera brings it yet again as another charming, lop-sided grinning loser – but he does it so very well that I’m all forgiveness for his being typecast. He is Scott Pilgrim, bass player extraordinaire for his band Sex Bob-omb, and playa’ extraordinaire for having a girlfriend who’s in high school. That is until he sees Ramona (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), the fluorescent haired girl of his dreams (literally). But she’s got baggage and before he knows it Scott is forced to defeat Ramona’s 7 Evil Exes video-game style, each one progressively tougher to K.O.

Total K.O.!Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World has a kind of fierce energy that is impossible to resist! There is always something happening, always eye-candy on the screen and constant sensory overload. Think Fight Club on cartoon acid! This movie rocks literally and figuratively from the soundtrack to the brilliant script which is full of quotable one-liners. This is smart stuff that never lets up and had me giggling, laughing and cheering along with the rest of the audience.

Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World has to be one of the most creative and completely entertaining movies I’ve seen this summer and is easily going to be one of the best of the year.
