Filmmaker Edgar Wright excels at uproarious parodies that double as durable entries in the very genre he lampoons. Unfortunately, his adaptation of Bryan Lee O'Malley's popular graphic novel series fails to live up to the success of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. The titular twentysomething slacker (Michael Cera) falls for Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), a delivery girl with a curt personality and multi-colored hair, but discovers he must battle and vanquish Ramona's seven evil exes in order to capture her heart. Wright faithfully translates O'Malley's marriage of manga-inspired artwork and video-game conceit into an overcaffeinated visual fest that plays squarely to its under-30 target audience. For everyone else, the film's core resides with an emotional connection to and between characters that evaporates in the setting's stylized ether.
