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.

    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)

    You have to see this movie

    Coyote Ugly is a very exciting movie. it has singing in it but it is not a musical. in this movie there is a jersey girl that love to make songs struggles to get money to survive. then she comes across a bar where the girls get down and dirty on the table, that dance and poor water down their cloths. She is a rooky, but she tries hard, but the most important thing to her is her music. So when she meets this mysterious guy that she knows nothing back she begins to fall in love. This movis is wonderful and i recomend it for ages 13 and up. But will she get her big hit in music? Or will she be a coyote forever? Coyote Ugly is a funny, romantic, and musical kind of movie. so whatever kind of movie your in to, this movie is right for you!!!

    Chick flic

    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.

She moves to New York for her dream to become a songwriter , she gets robbed and becomes depserate and gets job in a bar ''Coyote Ugly'' because she wants to make it on her own. Has sexy girls dancing on the bar and songs that make you want to buy the sound track. This movies is a hidden chick flick for guys. Everyone should enjoy this movie. I highly recommend it!

    More to this movie than bars, babes, and breasts!

    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!

    Not ugly at all!

    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.

    A Great Movie For Guys And Girls!!

    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.

    WHAT A MOVIE

    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
