Twenty-two-year-old Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) may not have a job, but rocking the bass for his band, Sex Bob-omb, is a tough job unto itself.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Full of fresh, sharp touches and nonchalantly brash performances, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World consistently hits the sweet spot."
‑ Tom Charity,
"It could have been a noisy, flashy mess, but luckily it's got heart, which makes it feel fun and unique, and more like a lo-fi, endearing mess instead."
‑ Dave Calhoun, Time Out
"Edgar Wright's Scott Pilgrim vs. The World adaptation cut its Adderall with gleeful, great success."
‑ David Zuckerman, Film Comment Magazine
"The cast of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World represents the best young talent coming up in Hollywood today."
‑ Charles Ealy, Austin American-Statesman
"Frankly, us geeks have never had it so good: Scott Pilgrim Vs The World is modern cinema at its most exciting, and it belongs to us."
‑ Ali Gray,
"It's fresh, funny, inventive and unique."
‑ Rafer Guzman, Newsday
"You need to take a step back to see the emotional heart of the story, an allegory of a generation struggling to exchange the solipsistic Xbox triumphs for awkward real-world love and empathy."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is refreshing, unique, wildly entertaining and consistently funny. I haven't had this much fun while watching a movie in a long, long time."
‑ Matt Joseph, We Got This Covered
"Like the special effects, the characters are sketched out in tiresome cinematic shorthand, as if to reassure the viewer that this joyride really isn't worth thinking too hard about."
‑ Michael Saba, Paste Magazine
"Edgar Wright and his crew had a daunting task in adapting this great material, but they were able to mix it together just right for the big screen, and have ultimately made one of the best films of the year."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"Scott Pilgrim vs. the World becomes a fatal case of flash over substance. Pretty great flash, though."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"Knowing self-mockery is the name of the game."
‑ Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle
"While there have been numerous attempts by Hollywood to cash in on the popularity of video games, none of those films has felt true to the artistic and creative spirit of those games until now. This one gets it right."
‑ Kirk Baird, Toledo Blade
"An unrelenting torrent of affectionate but biting music-scene satire, old-school Nintendo references, and cartoony depictions of post-adolescent love, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is a delight."
‑ Cammila Albertson, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"The entire film works on just how much you are willing to accept its premise: if you're fine with people developing amazing powers, characters talking directly to the camera and almost every other trick in the cinematic book, then you'll do fine"
‑ Laurence Boyce, The Baltic Times
