Scott Pilgrim vs. the World Movie Summary
Scott Pilgrim is a 22-year old bass guitarist for the band Sex Bob-omb. He lives with his gay roommate in a studio apartment in Toronto, Canada. One day, in a library, Pilgrim sees the girl of his dreams, Ramona Flowers. Even though he is currently dating 17-year old, Knives Chau, he obsesses to meet Ramona.
At a party one night, Scott unsuccessfully tries to talk to Ramona. His lines bob-omb, and Ramona leaves; alone. When Scott finds out that Ramona works for amazon.ca as a delivery girl, he orders something online; hoping she will deliver the package, and he can ask Ramona out on a date…both of which happen.
Ramona and Knives attend Scott’s battle of the bands, and as they play, Knives passes out from excitement. Ramona looks on in horror as one of her ex boyfriends attacks Scott. Scott defeats the ex, and his band wins the gig by default; the melee burnt the competing band to a crisp.
Scott learns that in order to keep dating Ramona, he must defeat her remaining 6 evil exes…and probably dumb Knives. One by one the exes appear and attack Scott. Eventually, he defeats them all, but not before learning some self respect. Most important, Scott learns how to be a good friend and boyfriend.
Yes, it’s a happy ending, but how long will it be before he too becomes an Evil X…until the sequel?
