Q: Is this movie worth the price of admission?
A: Proceed with Caution. This film is all style and no substance. But there always seems to be some idiot who gloms onto that sort of a thing and calls it a cult classic.
Q: Will this movie make me laugh?
A: The style is pretty funny at times, but when I say style, I'm talking about dialogue more pretentious than in Juno.
Q: Will this movie make me cry?
A: No, because you won't give a crap about anybody in it... not in you heart anyway.
Q: Will this movie be up for any awards?
A: Best Directing. Bet you didn't think I'd say that?
Q: How is the Acting?
A: Kieran Culkin steals the show because he has the best lines. And Anna Kendrick-- is there anything she's not in?
Q: How is the Directing?
A: Edgar Wright's visuals are the only reason anyone will be fooled into thinking this is a good movie.
Q: How is the story/script?
A: Don't expect to care about anybody, or even understand why Scott Pilgrim likes the girl he has to fight for. Also prepare to wonder where he gets his superpowers to fight these exes, why the exes turn into money when they are defeated, and by the way, how he defeats any of them, when in most cases it looks like they killed him first, multiple times. Basically, we are shown a surrealistic world of magical reality, but the rules of the world and the magic are never set up or explained to us.
Q: Is there anything else worth mentioning about the movie?
A: It tries to be a live action videogame, probably in order to pander to the young male audience that no one seems to be able to reach because they're busy playing actual video games. Since there's no user participation in this viewing experience, I don't see any reason for that audience to come out and see this. So why don't we all just accept that that audience is done with movies, and start making movies for the people who actually like to go to them. Like, for example, girls.
