First things first, it was Not a cut and paste of the books.
It was as funny, as innovative, as lovable, as heartfelt, and as humble as the books.
My favorite part of the books though, was that they were just really fun. I felt a smile on my face while I read it.
The movie version doesn't lose that.

Some characters are far gayer (weird, I expected to see a red line under that word), and some characters are far less.
Some lost face time and others gained, but I can't think of a single Book-to-Movie edit that was a bad call. (considering they had to cut about 75% of all character development/back stories)

It feels inappropriate to use the same old words and phrases to praise a movie that was slathered with completely new things I've never seen in a movie or script. I owe Edgar Wright and Brian Lee O'Malley an attempt though...

-Any one scene from this movie could be viral on YouTube on its own.
-My 'Love the Movie' to 'Hate the Wait til DVD' Ratio is equal at ' : '
-If there'd been a 15 ft tall facebook "Like" button at the end of the movie, I would've thrown my full weight against it.
-There were parts were I wanted to ignore the movie just to have something new to watch when I see it again in a few days.
-I'm dude-pregnant with the movie's baby.

This movie easily makes my Top 10.
If you haven't read the books, you'll only understand about 98% of the plot and 96% of the jokes.
I'll save a spolier-laden critique of the movie for at least a week or two after the movie.
What's important now is that you understand how hard this movie does all the undefinable things it does.

NOTE: This is just reviewing the theatrical release, not the DVD or Blu-ray.

It was with very little fanfare that I went to see Scott Pilgrim vs. the World on opening night. The ads were never really appealing to me and I felt like Michael Cera was being typecast so I figured this movie would be a flop. Still, there was enough positive buzz that I agreed to come along when a friend wanted to go and I'm floored at how opposite of a reaction I had to this film. Not only is it probably the biggest surprises of my life as far as movies go (not plot-wise, just in my feelings about it), but it's hands down one of the most fun experiences I've ever had in a movie theater.

The plot of Scott Pilgrim is pretty much exactly what you'd expect from the trailers: Michael Cera is Scott Pilgrim, who has fallen in love with a very alluring girl who, as it so happens, has 7 evil exes who have banded together to ensure that no one dates her if they can't. You really have to go into the movie accepting that this is the plot because it's not anything deeper than that, and that's a big part of what I love about it. This is one of the few movies I've seen in a long while that understands exactly what it needs to do and really nails it. It focuses on a few things and blows them out of the park. So even though the romance story is never fully fleshed out, it's the first movie I've seen that has felt like a comic book and a video game have come to life, slept together, and produced a child on the big screen.

I don't know how true it is to the comic book, but that's irrelevant because it stands on its own as something really smart if you can appreciate the references and things it tries to parody.

First off, this part of the review is for the steelbook if Amazon lumps it in with all the SP reviews. 5 stars for packaging and variety of formats. Now for the movie. No real review or spoilers here, I originally would have rated the move a 3 1/2 stars but now a 5. This movie demands repeat viewing!

This movie is highly entertaining and hilarious. I am very happy with the overall experience of purchasing this product. This came so fast in the mail and came right to my house. The DVD arrived brand new in original packaging and was easy to open to retrieve the DVD out of the case. The DVD came undamaged and worked perfectly with my surround sound, DVD player, and TV. I cannot believe what a deal I got on this DVD. It was so worth it as I saved big time and did not even have to leave the house and still payed less then what I would have in the stores. I am very happy with my purchase and the new addition to my DVD collection.

This movie's a blast for those who like graphic novels (which will always be comic books to me!), great comic book movies, video games, Japanese animation, indie rock music & Quentin Tarantino movies, all of which are referenced in this movie. Michael Cera is great at Scott Pilgrim, who must fight his way through new girlfriend Mary Elizabeth Winstead seven evil ex-boyfriends to win her heart! Kieran Culkin gives a scene-stealing performance as Scott's/Michael's roommate, and the movie is a blast to watch!

Probably the most noteworthy thing to note about this movie is that its style is heavily influenced by video-games and comics. This movie had roots in a comic done in a manga style.

The general plot of the movie is depicted on the cover of the movie. Scott wants to date Ramona Flowers and he has to fight 7 evil exes to have the right to. It sounds like a video game/comic book plot. This movie is big on hipster humor as well with comics like they are better live after they just hear a live concert.

As far as my opinion goes, I think this movie is a great one. The cuts are unconventional, refreshing, and the scenes and outfits are carefully orchestrated to provide an awesome engrossing experience. This movie doesn't ever feel like they are thrusting story at you either, yet you understand all of their relationships to each other by the end. Its very funny that a movie as over the top and crazy as this one is probably paints the most real portrait of romance that I have seen in a movie at least on a symbolic level.

I highly recommend getting Scott Pilgrim vs the World if you are a creative comic-loving or game-loving individual.
