SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD is an exhilarating pop-culture extravaganza and mash-up of geek-culture influences that creates a coming-of-age story for the 21st century. Scott (Cera) is a bass-playing slacker who is smitten when he catches a glimpse of Ramona Flowers, the ultimate manic-pixiedream- girl. Unfortunately for Scott, Romana has a cadre of evil exes that Scott must defeat in video-game-style combat to win her affections.
