Scott Pilgrim vs the World

“…Whether you like or just admire ‘Scott Pilgrim’ will probably rest with how you feel about Scott, as played by Hollywood’s favourite nerd, Michael Cera. Scott is the 22-year-old jobless bass player in a garage band called Sex Bob-omb and is the kind of role that Cera regularly plays. But he’s also likeable, adorable at times, and free of the super-cool jive-talking that mars films like ‘Juno’. He’s self-centred and emotionally childish, but no more, we think, than most of us, and we enjoy the company of his friends, especially his vicious gay flatmate (Kieran Culkin). It means that when the frosty, unreachable Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) enters his life and he gives his try-hard younger girlfriend Knives Chau (Ellen Wong) the brush-off, we’re running along with him….” – (Dave Calhoun, Time Out)
