The Ramen Girl: Star Wars, But With Ramen

By Lindsay Robertson / January 5, 2009 - 11:03 am

The Ramen Girl, the little movie about an American girl in Tokyo (Brittany Murphy) who gets dumped by her boyfriend and decides to apprentice herself to a tough but fair Ramen chef, has been taken down from a high shelf at Warner Bros., dusted off, and given a (somewhere) release date of January 17. Soon, we’ll have the answer we need after seeing this trailer: Is it SUPPOSED to be funny? It’s supposed to be funny. Of course. Right?:

This makes me want to go out and buy some Top Ramen so I can announce, with tears streaming down my face: “I want to cook Ramen!” (It’s pronounced “Raaah-menn. Raaaaaaaah-men.” by the way. We learned, from this trailer.)
