A boy fights for the girl of his dreams.

Wonderful fun. I expected to see something that tried too hard to be novel, but that is not the case. Somehow the surreal video game world manages to seem like a perfectly natural way to express these characters. It's easy to dismiss them, since the movie turns character development into gags and plays turning-points as parody of dramatic convention. Also, having characters who mask their feelings in a movie where subtlety is bound to be lost is maybe a bit questionable. But I think it works. I've read criticisms where it's complained that Ramona doesn't like Scott enough, but the thing is, we're seeing things from Scott's perspective, and the fact that he has no idea whether she likes him is kind of the point to the whole movie.
