Overview

An aspiring musician becomes one of the most famous bartenders in New York in this high-spirited comedy-drama. Small-town girl Violet Sanford (Piper Perabo) dreams of making a name for herself as a singer and songwriter, so she moves to New York City in hopes of landing her big break. Needing to support herself until stardom rolls around, she takes a job as a barmaid at a new nightspot called Coyote Ugly, where the owner Lil (Maria Bello) and the staff of attractive young women dance on the bar, flirt with the mostly male clientele, sing along with the jukebox, and goad the customers into matching them shot for shot. Soon, local media pick up on the bar's success, turning the staff into unexpected celebrities, a situation that presents its own set of problems. Coyote Ugly also stars John Goodman as Violet's straight-laced father, Adam Garcia as a customer Violet becomes involved with, and Tyra Banks, Melanie Lynskey, Bridget Moynahan, and Izabella Miko as the barmaids; action-film titan Jerry Bruckheimer produced.

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Viewers who appreciate loud music, bodacious babes, and high-spirited fun will find plentiful quantities of each at this film's eponymous establishment. Coyote Ugly, a rollicking romp directed by David McNally, stars appealing newcomer Piper Perabo as Violet Sanford, a young New Jersey native who moves to New York to fulfill her dream of becoming a singer-songwriter. Like most aspiring talents who make their way to the Big Apple, Violet finds the road to success pockmarked with potholes, and to make ends meet she takes a job as barmaid at Coyote Ugly, where the employees are just as rowdy as the customers. Perabo winningly portrays the insecure songstress whose inhibitions gradually melt away as she becomes accustomed to the bar's raucous atmosphere. McNally directs energetically, eliciting lively supporting performances from Maria Bello (as the bar's hard-boiled proprietor), Kevin O'Donnell (as Violet's new beau), and John Goodman (as her justifiably worried dad). Supermodel Tyra Banks is among the beautiful barmaids whose vigorous dance numbers are guaranteed to keep interest from flagging. The DVD includes documentaries about the casting of the film's lead role, the filming of the bar scenes, a LeAnn Rimes music video, and deleted scenes.

I have seen it a million times and love it. It is funny, romantic, dramatic and completely worth buying. P.S. Adam Garcia (who plays Kevin O'Donnell) is quite the eye candy. (And his Australian accent tops It off)

Coyote Ugly is so much more than what was seen on the comercial for it. It has love and fist fights, along with some great music. There is something in it for every adult to see. I would recommend this movie to everyone.

This movie is awesome. I was so envious of the girls while watching, wondering why they didn't have places like this when I was growing up. This movie is full of ENERGY.. Also it has a wonderful love story that shows how far a guy will go for the one he loves. I am addicted to this movie

This movie is two genres rolled up into one: it's a chic flick that also gives the guys thier daily dose of hot babes throughout the movie!! It's soo easy to get caught up into the awesome music and the moves, and it'll keep you jumping and make you want to be a Coyote!! Plus, hot ADAM GARCIA who plays the lucious KEVIN O'DONNELL, boyfriend to Violet, adds the extra flava that the girls love and definetly want!!!!! The hot Aussie accent will make you melt, and you'll be hoping he takes off the blanket that almost covers him!! Watch the movie to see what I'm talking about! Watch this movie! If you've already seen it, watch it again, and I'm sure you'll see something you missed before! The guy is not the only thing hot about the movie! The soundtrack is really rad too! You have to go out there and buy the movie and the soundtrack! You'll definetly regret it if you don't! C'mon people...ADAM GARCIA for cryin' out loud!!!!!! This is an awesome movie, and my favorite! I WANT TO BE A COYOTE!!

This is a great story to motivate people to succeed in a cut-throat society. Violet the main character, wants to make it in the ''Big Apple''. She is very naive to the music industry, but she's determined to become a song writer and have her songs heard. In the process of experiencing failures along the way, she learns a few things about herself. There are ways to get what you want in life without comprimising your integrity, as she learns at her new job as a Coyote Ugly. I recommend this movie to anyone! Great soundtrack!

This movie is a great ''attention grabber'' for guys and a perfect love story for women. The Love between Violet Sanford and the aussie hottie Kevin O'donald is a sweet enough story on its own but one of the other great things about this movie (mostly for guys) is the bar, Coyote Ugly. Violet Sanford tries to follow her dreams as a song writter and on the way she is in desperate need of money and she finds work at the bar. She has to go through obsticals as she try's to reach her dreams. I would recommend this movie to everyone. It's deffinatly worth it.

We all sometimes have the feeling of being to scared to do something we love in front of others. We get scared of what people will think about it. Piper Perabo is one of those people who will do anything to be a music writer. She moves to New York to better her chances at making her dream come true. She is a teriffic writer but she can't perform her songs in front of people, without this she will never succeed. It is a great story line with Great actors. My favorite parts would have to be the ones in the bar. There was singing, dancing and a lot of people having fun.

Sorry, this movie just doesn't cut it. I just can't overlook the bad acting and boring story. It does have a lot of beautiful women but even that can't save this mess. Men stay away, far away.
