''Scott Pilgrim vs. The World'' is a 2010 {{film}} directed by Creator/EdgarWright, his first American film, and based on the [[ComicBooks comic series]] ''ComicBook/ScottPilgrim'' by Bryan Lee O'Malley. The film, like its source material, is about a twenty-something UsefulNotes/{{Toronto}} slacker named Scott Pilgrim who meets an American named Ramona Flowers, and must defeat her seven evil exes in order to date her. In a universe that acts like a real-life version of ''VideoGame/RiverCityRansom'' where there are [[{{Combos}} combo meters]], {{written sound effect}}s spelled out in midair, [[ScoringPoints points]], and [[VideoGameLives extra lives]].

Since the comic was as yet unfinished during filming, the film moves in a slightly different direction to the comic, though core elements remain the same.

While the critics and audiences loved the film, it wasn't able to make back its budget in the box office market, more than likely due to the humor being targeted to a certain demographic. However, it fared far better in the home market.
