What else do you want? Great film. The type of extraordinary film that draws one to the cinema. I own the DVD and it is getting a workout. The fantasy, the jokes, the romance, the legs, the feminine hair. Yeah. I am a fan.

Did You Know?


When Scott and his friends are walking to Julie's party, there is a building in the background with a lit-up "Flight Center" sign - the L, however, is flickering, so it actually reads "Fight Center".


Todd Ingram: I partake not in the meat, nor the breastmilk, nor the ovum, of any creature, with a face.


On the bus ride after the Battle of the Bands, the bus is first seen driving down a street which could only turn left or right, it does not continue straight. However, in the next scenes it is seen driving forward only, it doesn't turn a corner.

Crazy Credits

When the cast is listed during the opening credits, the drawings in the background display little motifs related to the characters they play in the movie:

  • Chris Evans: Lucas Lee's skateboards and the logo for his company
  • Anna Kendrick: Coffee stains and wet mug marks (Stacey Pilgrim works at a coffee shop)
  • Alison Pill: The words "one! two! three! four! (which Kim Pine typically yells to signal the start of a Sex Bob-Omb song) and the Sex-Bob-Omb logo
  • Aubrey Plaza: Black squares (which are used to obscure Julie Powers' mouth whenever she curses)
  • Brandon Routh: Bass guitars (Todd Ingram defeats Scott Pilgrim in a bass duel) and the number 3
  • Jason Schwartzman: The three triangle symbol of Gideon Graves' company and a pair of glasses
  • Ellen Wong: A pair of knives similar to those which Knives Chau uses in the final fight.
  • Kieran Culkin: A cell phone status bar (Wallace Wells can text while sleeping)
  • Johnny Simmons: Rectangles mimicking the design on Young Neil's shirt and his Nintendo DS
  • Michael Cera: Scott Pilgrim's bass strings
  • Mary Elizabeth Winstead: Three different shades of hair, denoting how many times Ramona changes hair color
  • Brie Larson: Broken hearts denoting Envy Adams' cruelty to Scott
  • Mark Webber: Stephen Stills' acoustic guitar.
  • Mae Whitman: Four X's denoting Roxie Richter's position as evil ex number 4 and a razor blade denoting her razor whip
Additionally, the names of all the actors playing Ramona's evil exes are accompanied by numerous little Xs.

Alternate Versions

A longer version of the "Crash and The Boys" concert reveals that the song "We Hate You, Please Die" was another less than 10 second song, and that the song heard in the movie was titled "The Last Song Kills Audience."
