Two milk drivers (wanderin’ cowpokes) stop in at a ramen hop, where a group of men (varmints) eye them suspiciously. But driver Goro who has the Mt. Rushmore mug of a Palance or Peck and sports a cowboy hat, immediately gets into a brawl when he makes less-than-complementary remarks about the noodles. After the five against one slugest, restaurant hostess Tampopo begs the beaten-up Goro to help her build the best noodle place in town. And out of “Shane” goodness of heart, he agrees. (114 mins)
