'Scott Pilgrim vs. The World'( Universal Pictures )
Angles of the love triangle: Lovable loser Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) gets a groupie grilfriend, Knives (Ellen Wong), whom he does genuinely care for, though she's a bit young. Then along comes Ramona (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), and Scott is thrown for an infatuated loop. He keeps going out with Knives, knowing that Ramona is his true love.
Final equation: Scott and Knives make beautiful music together as they combine to take down the seventh of Ramona's evil exes, Gideon Graves (Jason Schwartzmann). But even Knives realizes that all this fighting that Scott has done has been for the love of Ramona and ends up encouraging him to follow his heart.
