In October, Juno/Up in the Air director Jason Reitman tweeted a mini-review of an early cut of Edgar Wright‘s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, which he called “a game changer for Edgar and the genre” and “the first all encompassing film of the joystick generation.” Now Adventureland/Superbad director Greg Mottola has also seen the film, and has posted a mini-review on Twitter.
Be very jealous of me. I’ve seen an entire cut of SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD. Edgar Wright has made a classic (again)! It’s amazing. … I would say that Scott Pilgrim is the wittiest action movie you’ll ever see, but that’s just the half of it. … Needless to say, Michael Cera is perfect. In fact, every single performance is incredible. You’ve got something special to look forward to. … The filmmaking is so insanely good, I retired halfway through the movie. (looking forward to the pension checks, tho)
Sounds like another rave review.
*It should be noted that both Reitman and Mottola are friends with Wright, hence how they were able to see an early cut of the film.
