Aubrey Plaza plays Julie Powers, and you can see more of her at http://plazabreakfastcocktail.tumblr.com

Plaza. Breakfast. Cocktail. It means what it sounds like. Also, sometimes a kitty.

This film (comicfilm?) has so many inside Toronto references that while most people laugh at a great story, Torontonians are on the floor in fits of guffaws as if they're being flirt-tickled by a lover.

For those in the know, it very nearly feels like the home intersection and neighbourhood of our protagonist and his pals is in a particularly atypical-for-films location that, due to its unique geographical features, never gets used in all those films where Toronto ends up another city's stand-in (hint: "Come in and Get Lost!"). It's awesome. And this film moves fast, much like the greatest city does.

And for those really in the know: Michael Cera, as Scott Pilgrim, is Toronto the Synecdoche. This film is Hog Town's coming out party before the world. ★★★★★

@2: You know, I love Honest Ed's too because God bless their dirt-cheap groceries and Elvis busts, but I went in there last year and it smelled like fart. All the time, everywhere. And it wasn't me, because I don't have that kind of stamina.

@3: It had to be a fluke, because I've never smelled that in there before. Then again, I do most of my Honest Ed's runs in the basement grocery area, usually for things like bulk honey, canned stuff, the occasional fresh bread loaf, and for funky-arse beverages from Eastern Europe and the Middle East.

Also, if you're no longer a starving UofT/RyersonU/YorkU/George Brown High School student (or not scraping by generally), then Honest Ed's utility starts to wane a bit for some. Toronto lost something irreplaceable when Ed Mirvish passed on in July 2007.

@5: Have you tried shoving Toronto up your arse? It feels AWESOME. Especially that pointy bit with the knob we call the CN Tower and the up-and-down sliding bits we call the Red Rocket.

You'll feel so changed by this penetrating experience that you won't ever sound like you need to get badly laid whilst making an cowardly anonymous comment, Octorod.
