Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, 2010


If the idea was to celebrate the mediocre and mundane, and the sometimes downright boring aspects of post-adolescence, then I suppose this movie has it all.

And if the point was to fight for your supposed true-love to the very end with the help of nifty gaming superpowers, then, well, whatshisname certainly fought the good fight well.

And if spending almost-two hours listening to lame one-liners and watching a group of maladjusted and semi-dysfunctional young adults muddle through the hours of their day and their relationships was another point of the movie, well, then, I suppose it hit the nail on its head.

I laughed only to be polite, and was thankful for the ending when it finally came.
