Synopsis / Plot
Violet Sanford (Piper Perabo), a girl in her early 20s, goes to the Big Apple to pursue a dream of becoming a songwriter. While waiting for her dream to come true, she lands a day job as a bar maid at a nightclub called Coyote Ugly, the city's newest hot spot. Here, the all-female employees cater to the largely male clientele by treating them with a good deal of sass. As Violet starts work, her aspirations are at least temporarily sidelined by the notoriety she receives at the bar. Besides the owner Lil (Maria Bello), she also meets the team of sexy, resourceful female employees, who provoke the clientele and press with their mischief.
Critics' reviews
  • "There is a reason to see the movie, and that reason is Piper Perabo. (...) Rating: ★★ (out of four)."
  • "Superficial (...) It looks like a big-budget version of a Miller's Genuine Draft commercial. (After extolling the fun of alcohol, the movie is lacking only the somber tagline "Drink Responsibly," which actually makes the Miller television spots morally superior.)."
  • "I liked Coyote Ugly better when it was called "Flashdance," although I didn't like it very much then. (...) The music is explosively banal."
