JPP: Satire works best when it focuses its jibes on a target that takes itself seriously. One of the big problems with Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is that it takes aim at video games. And video games are just that: games. They aren’t meant to be heady art. Director Edgar Wright’s previous two films (Shaun of the Dead; Hot Fuzz) were hysterically funny because they were satirizing proper, established film genres. Video games are a hard target because they are so chaotic and over-the-top by design.
