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.

Editorial Reviews

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.
