I really dug the comics since it didn't take itself seriously but was disappointed in the final volume so I'm pretty sure I'll feel the same way about the movie. Scott and Ramona aren't really compelling characters in the books either but I think that's the whole point. Scott is introduced in the book with a 'rating of awesome' and then you quickly find out he's just a slightly below average guy with nothing really special going on for him. I see the scott pilgrim graphic novels as more of a humorous statement on my generation of 20 something year old video game playing comic book nerds. Still a pretty fun romp though.
