Scott Pilgrim vs the World

I fell in love with the film Scott Pilgrim vs the World when the first trailer was released a few months ago. When the trailer ended, I was giggling, clapping my hands, and I believe I said (out loud to no one), "that was awesome!!" (yes, I'm over 50, deal with it) After seeing the movie today, a few kids sitting in front of me said the same thing. Scott Pilgrim meets Ramona Flowers, and in a simple desire to pursue boy meets girl, he is dragged into the world of the League of the 7 Evil Exes. He holds his own, with a lot of kicking and punching. Scott must make decisions, Scott has a lot going on, Scott must grow. The characters are interesting, from his friends to his enemies. All surprising, all fantastic. This film is creative, funny, sarcastic and races along to a satisfying end. I loved this film, and give a big round of applause to the acting and the music, just fantastic!!

Sweet - another fan! We need to spread the word about this flick and get more people out to see it in these last dog days of summer.

If only so they can bounce in their seats and clap their hands too!

Hatter~From what I've read, if everyone who got to see this in free screening went and paid their way in, the numbers would climb!
