Posts with the tag "Michael Cera romances"
The rough plot of every Michael Cera film: Cera is a quirky geek who is in love with a beautiful woman. Cera channels all his geek power into wooing the lady through awkward conversations and self-deprecating humor. Boom. The lady can no longer resist his charms. They fall in love. Credits roll.
This week Cera utilizes his powers of attraction in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. The Edgar Wright directed film has Cera playing the titular Scott Pilgrim in a quest to romance Ramona Flowers. Cera has to fight the evil ex-boyfriends of Flowers through a blend of karate film stunts and video game effects. Forget Shakespeare, some women just can’t resist the cooing of that romantic prose we all know as the Konami code.
