5.0 out of 5 stars If you are YOUNG-AT-HEART, you will love it!!, July 8, 2011

This review is from: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (DVD)
One point that came up in the official movie critics' reviews was that this film couldn't be understood by anyone over 25. Baloney!
My twenties are long gone, I don't play video games, and I've never read the SP books. But, I freaking LOVE Scott Pilgrim vs. The World!
Found it accidently while flipping through HBO channels. Watched it with an initial reaction of "What in the....?" Then I just started laughing and never stopped till the end. SPVTW has been my latest and hardiest movie addiction, and I am enjoying the high. Thank goodness I have enough friends in their twenties, as well as young-at-heart older friends who can also get a kick out of it.
Will this be a cult classic? It already is! I won't do a synopsis, since you can look that up on the product page. But here is a list of some pros:
* Funny as hell!! Well scripted, smart and clever.
* Wonderful ensemble cast. There is no one in it that was slacking off. Big hugs to every character.
* Stunning design and effects. Inspired direction and editing. Props to all the film crew. Beautiful!
* The movie flows with an organic, colorful, spastic energy that whips you along like the most insane rollercoaster.
All you need to enjoy it is a sense of humor and adventurous fun, an appreciation for the weird and offbeat and the desire to experience a new kind of movie magic. Since it is such an unusual offering, do rent it first if you're not sure. But, I guarantee...most of you will be back to buy. :)
Caveat to the uptight: This film is a COMIC BOOK movie! Do not expect depth of plot or profound revelations here. Pure empty-calorie yumminess. Snickers, not spinach.
Special XXXXXXX (not the evil kind) to Edgar Wright - you maniac! - for creating an amazing world we want to visit again and again.
