VIDEO: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)
Mr. Mendo sets himself up for more hate mail by taking apart Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, the most relentlessly smirky, bombastic, overstuffed big budget comedy since Hudson Hawk. Or possibly even Leonard Part 6!
Michael Cera plays a 20 something slacker (shocker!) living in Toronto, who falls in love with a girl with seven evil exes, among them Superman and Captain America. Scott has to do battle with each ex in a series of Nintendo-inspired fight scenes, while writer-director Edgar Wright shamelessly attempts to create a new cult classic by stuffing in the maximum amount of video game in-jokes possible.
