Short: I loved it. If you are 30 and younger you will really get it. If you are 50 and younger and have some tech/game savvy, you will really get it. If you don’t match these… give it a try anyway, you will catch on.
What if real life was a video fight game? What if you had to move through levels to earn the right to date “Ramona”, the new girl to Toronto (fresh from angst in New York)?
This is the premise of Scott Pilgrim vs The World. I absolutely loved this movie, one of my favorites of recent years. I’ll see it again because like other great satirical comedies, for instance Airplane!, there are many levels of humor/satire/homage that you miss the first time.
After 5 years, or so, of “well that was okay” movies, Hollywood finally has hit two in a row for me (Inception and Scott Pilgrim).
Well… hmm… nope. It isn’t overt, or even specific, but there are situations not appropriate for the kids. I wouldn’t recommend this for anybody under 16, or for any adults that ban face cards in their home (sort of an inside LDS standard, they will know if it applies to them).
