She wants to stay in Tokyo in hopes he’ll come back to her, but she’s miserable: she speaks little Japanese and has a dull job as a law-firm gopher. She stumbles into the neighborhood ramen shop operated by the aging master chef Maezumi and his wife Reiko. His soup cheers Abby, so she decides to apprentice herself to him. He’s uninterested, she’s insistent, so he shouts at her and gives her all the cleaning to do. Weeks go by; she’s persistent. Will he ever actually teach her to cook? And if he does, will she bring the requisite spirit to the job?
Plot: An American woman is stranded in Tokyo after breaking up with her boyfriend. Searching for direction in life, she trains to be a râmen chef under a tyrannical Japanese master.

Very watchable…a few plot holes…ending could’ve been better
Never heard of this movie before my sister started playing it. I guess it wasn’t marketed very well. All in all, the movie was enjoyable, especially if you’re a fan of Brittany Murphy. She did a pretty great job and it’s always pleasant to her smile. Her interactions with her teacher were the best parts of the movie.
There was no real need for the other non-Japanese characters as their subplots didn’t add much to the movie. Nor was there any real end to their story. The ending was quick and not well thought out, but still okay. Other than that, a very watchable and at times pretty funny movie. Made me crave Ramen!!!
what are these people talking about?
The people who left good reviews must have a financial stake in this movie because I don’t think I can adequately express just how terrible it was. Sometimes a movie can be entertaining precisely because it is so bad, but sadly, this movie can’t even hit that mark. The “acting” is beyond atrocious. The only thing that separates this movie from a high school film project is professional cinematography. Not that it’s great, but it’s at least adequate for a widely released movie.
Now, I can enjoy a cheesy romantic comedy as much as the next person, but this movie is really, really terrible. It’s not good enough to make me think it was a serious production, but not funny enough to make me think it was a parody. Wikipedia says this movie had a $32 million budget, they must have spent it all on hookers and blow.
