Scott is a bass guitarist in the band Sex Bob-omb and shares a one-room apartment with gay best friend, Wallace (played by the excellent Kieran Culkin, who also gets all the best lines).
At a party, he sees the girl of his dreams, Ramona Flowers, who initially shuns him, but once she accepts that Scott is serious, gives him her telephone number. Whilst Sex Bob-omb perform at a local Battle of the Bands, Scott is attacked by a man who states he is the first of Ramona’s seven evil exes, and that Scott now has to defeat all of them, in order to win Ramona…
Scott Pilgrim is quick-paced, offbeat and funny. You find yourself rooting for the good guys whilst being thoroughly entertained. It’s never going to win an Oscar, but I don’t think that was ever the intention.
