The Ramen Girl: Star Wars, But With Ramen

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.)
