Meet charming and jobless Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera). A bass guitarist for totally average 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 assand now is back in townto 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 pastfrom infamous skateboarders to vegan rock stars and fearsomely identical twins. And if he hopes to win his true love, he must vanquish them all before it really is game over.
Canadian Connection: This movie was not only filmed in Toronto, but it's set in Toronto. Several of the cast members, including Michael Cera and Alison Pill, are Canadian.
interesting concept..which worked well...a bit too long, but overall a fun movie.
I gave it three stars mostly for originality...it was definitely interesting but not the type of film for us over 50 folks. It was choppy...needed some finesse.
