As a love story about a dude who fights his new girlfriend's evil exes video game-style, there are a lot of theories and interpretations that can be applied to Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. Personally, between the books and film, I always wondered just how much of the tale happened as it said, since Pilgrim is known for blowing memories to sensational heights. If Scottie could remember punching out a regular high school kid as a death-defying fight to save a friend, who knows what really happened as Mr. Pilgrim faced Ramona Flowers' evil exes.

Add that to the fact that the movie was written before Bryan Lee O'Malley finished the series, and Edgar Wright had a whole lot of possibilities to end his cinematic adaptation -- including framing it as a gruesome dream. (Spoilers after the jump.)
