When sitting in the theatre listen out for any laughter at the chip-tune Universal theme. Those guys are the audience who will get the film. The others? They will probably be mildly amused at the visual hyper-activity.
Toronto, Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) is an aloof and self-centered slacker suffering inertia. When he’s not playing bass guitar in his band Sex Bob-Omb, he’s dating cute 17 year old Knives Chau (Ellen Wong) or crashing at his gay friend’s, Wallace Wells (Kieran Culkin), house. Going nowhere fast he suddenly meets girl of his dreams, Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead).
Unfortunately, he has to battle her seven evil exes including Chris Evans and Jason Schwartzman.
