SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD (B+)
Starring: Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Chris Evans, Brandon Routh, Anna Kendrick, Jason Schwartzman and Kieran Culkin
Story: Scott Pilgrim must defeat his new girlfriend's seven evil ex-boyfriends in order to win her heart. (Universal Pictures)
Bottom Line: The best movie of the weekend that will, unfortunately, make the least money. The story is simple but the style in which this visually gripping, eye-poppingly rich, comic-book-come-to-life comedy action flick moves makes for an exciting, vivid, exhilarating and entertaining time at the theaters. Or I guess I could have just said ‘it’s really fun’.
