      Light and girly film, nothing new or special though

      I was given Coyote Ugly as a Christmas present a couple of years ago, and recently found it at the back of my shelves and gave it a watch again. I didn't think it would be my type of movie when I first saw it as it seemed like it would be a bit of a girly movie, and generally I'm not really into those types but I ended up really liking it.

      The lead character Violet, is played by Piper Perabo, who I really enjoyed as the actress, and she moved to New York to make it as a singer. She lives in a cramped apartment and is struggling to get noticed to the companies, and is pretty much the stereotype of what people believe struggling musicians are like really. One night she meets Kevin, played by Adam Garcia, another great actor in this role in my opinion, who she believes might be able to help her to actually get somewhere.

      Of course, their plotline runs throughout the movie giving it a bit of a romantic edge, so thats in there for all the rom com fans. I felt they had a pretty good dynamic together as a (sort of) couple, and the way their relationship changes throughout the movie definitely kept me interested. It's also nice seeing how they both help the other one to change, and how Kevin helps Violet in her music career.

      Another main plotline of the story has to revolve around the actual club itself, Coyote Ugly! After randomly visiting the bar, she meets Lil the owner, who gives her a trial run and eventually a part time job working at Coyote Ugly, which is basically a really busy bar where the bartenders seem to always end up dancing on the bar itself. I quite liked seeing Violet work here, as it shows you how she changes to fit into the environment and how it does help her to improve her confidence..

      There aren't any special effects or anything like that, but I have to say that the soundtrack behind it is pretty good like at one point where Violet sings One Way Or Another. I think the one that everyone will end up knowing is Leann Rhimes song, Can't Fight The Moonlight.

      The acting is great in the film and I feel that each of them manage to convey their characters pretty well and mesh together nicely. There's also a small cameo from young Tyra Banks which I found to be quite cool as I only really see her as America's Next Top Model host.

      The storyline managed to keep me interested, even though the film wasn't really what I usually watch. I like how they put Violet out of her comfort zone and keep you guessing to whether she'll really make it or if she'll be a coyote girl forever. While I guess some parts of it are pretty guessable, it's not the same as every girly movie and is pretty different in some areas.

      Overall, I think it's a good film to watch if your just in the mood to watch something quite light and girly. It managed to keep me interested for the whole film, and is definitely one to watch in those moods where you just want to sit on the sofa and not have to bother thinking about intricate plotlines!

        I Wanna Be A Coyote!!

        I was bought Coyote Ugly by my best friend for Christmas about 3 years ago and I absolutely love the film! I would probably classify this film as a 'chick flick' but my boyfriend and male friend's have watched this film and enjoyed it so don't let that put you off.

        The Story
        Violet Sanford (played by Piper Perabo) is a singer/songwriter and decides to move from small downtown Jersey to New York to try and get her work recognised. Not having much money, she has to rent a small run down apartment. She send out demon tapes of her music to hundreds of companies and they are all returned to her without even being opened.

        One night, Violet is out having a few drinks when she runs into Kevin O'Donnell (played by Adam Garcia).
        She is told by one of Kevin's friends that Kevin is the owner of the club there are in. You can see there is an attraction between Kevin and Violet (Kevin is gorgeous!!) and when they are leaving the club, Violet gives Kevin a demo tape, hoping that it will get her somewhere.

        It soon becomes clear that Violet has been tricked, and that Kevin is infact a kitchen boy at the club and not the owner at all! Violet returns to the club he works at and demands her demo tape back - Kevin tries to flirt with Violet but she is still furious about being tricked. They begin to talk and she tells Kevin her dream of becoming a songwriter. He explains that the only way to get her songs noticed, is to sing them herself at an open mic night - Kevin knows the manager of the club that holds these nights and offers to help her. She then explains that she is unable to sing her own songs as she freezes when she gets on stage, she get the most terrible stage fright - something she believes she has inherited from her mother - who also had the same dream as her.

        While Violet is waiting for her music to be noticed, she needs a job and is desperately looking for work. She hears of a job opening at a bar named 'Coyote Ugly' and decides to go and see the bar. She meets the manageress Lil (played by Maria Bello) and after a rather bizarre conversation, she tells Violet that she can come to work for her the following night to see how she likes it.

        Violet arrives for work and it very shocked at the place. All the other girls are writhing around on the bar, being ogled by men and the crowd of (mainly) mean are very rowdy. As the viewer, you can see that Violet is not used to this sort of environment and she finds it difficult to fit it with the other girls behaviour.
        Violet encounters lots of problems at the bar, she makes countless mistakes and nearly gets the bar shut down but she sticks at it, because she needs the money. One night, a huge fight breaks out in Coyote Ugly and Violet is the only one that can try and calm the bar down, she decides to climb on the bar and sing along to the Duke Box in a sexy manner to try and gain the attention of all the men that are fighting....

        I don't really want to go any further with the story as I am worried that I will give too much of the story line away.

        My Opinion
        I really love this film. Although its probably considered to be a chick flick, it appeals to both males and females and has a great storyline that keeps you guessing the whole way through. Violet makes so many mistakes at the bar and finds it so hard to fit in, that you never know how long she is going to stick it out for as she just runs into more and more problems the harder she tries.

        She wants to become a singer/songwriter and the only way to do that is to sing her songs herself, but she is unable to do that because of her crippling stage fright. The viewer is left guessing whether Violet is ever going to get her dream, or whether she will overcome her stage fright or just be in the right place at the right time and get herself noticed enough to have a famous artist singer her songs for her - or will she sing them herself?

        Then, to finish off the story nicely, you have Violet's relationship with Kevin. You can see the attraction between them and you are never sure what is going to happen as they are both quite closed with their feelings and never give too much away so you are left wondering exactly how much they like each other. Kevin always asks lots of questions about Violet but is not keen on answering any questions she asks... is he hiding a secret?

        Music
        Coyote Ugly has lots of music included in the films. Violet obviously writes her own songs and there are a couple of tracks that most people will be familiar with - for example Leanne Rimes - Can't Fight The Moonlight. There are also lots of songs played in the Coyote Bar such as INEXS - Need You Tonight and Blondie - One Way Or Another. These songs really do add that little extra something special to the film. There is actually a Coyote Ugly soundtrack CD available featuring all the songs from the film.

        The Director's Cut Version
        To be honest, this version is not too different from the original film although you do get to see a few extra scenes which are not included in the original. Kevin and Violet have an intimate scene in the film and in the Director's Cut - you get to see a little bit more flesh than you do in the original (put it this way, my boyfriend enjoyed this bit!!) There are also a few other scenes that are not in the original such as Violet opening her heart about her Mum who died and we actually see a photo of her Mum in the Director's Cut. I don't really think there is any need for this version as the original film was perfect as it is, but for any die hard fans of this film, then I would recommend it.

        Price
        This DVD costs around £12 in stores such as HMV but you can get them so much cheaper on amazon or play - for around £4 for this version.

        Summary
        This is a great feel good film. The story is not too obvious and you are left guessing certain parts of the film the whole way through which really keeps your attention. To add to this, there is an excellent soundtrack to accompany the film! Anyone who hasn't already watched it, definitely should!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A fun watch with catchy songs to sing along to

          **Characters**
          the main character is a young lady named Violet Sanford. She is a talented musician and singer and moves to New York to peruse her dreams. Here she meets Kevin O'Donnell played buy hunky actor Adam Garcia. He is originally from Australia and is very closed and mysterious about his past life there. Violet also meets the Coyotes in New York. They include Lil, Cammie, Zoe (played by Tyra Banks) and Rachel. Lil is the bar owner and treats it like her baby. Cammie is a pretty, young blond, who plays the sweet and innocent dancer. Zoe is a feisty and sexy coyote and them there is Rachel. She is the bitch of the group and gives the new girls a tough time.


          **The Film Plot**
          It's a pretty old film so I am sure you have all seen it before. But if not I'll try not to give away the ending. Violet moves to New York to pursue her career as a musician/ song writer. She then meets Kevin O'Donnell who is said to know people in the business. After handing her tape to him she realises that he is just a waiter. Feeling upset and humiliated she goes home only to be followed by him. Broke and desperate she lands herself a job at Coyote Ugly. This is one of the most popular bars in town and Violets job consists of serving drinks and dancing on the bar. Kevin comes back on the scene when Violet goes to get her tape. He had listened to it as tries to get her to overcome her stage fright, using various different methods. But having a boyfriend at Coyote Ugly is frowned upon so when Kevin starts a bar fight Violet loses her job. But when an open mic night comes up Violet goes for it, but will she have the guts to sing on stage? Watch and you will find out.


          **The Extras**
          There are a great selection of extras on this DVD. You have a commentary of the film as well as three featurettes. These are: Search for the stars, following the casting of Violet, Kevin and the Coyotes, Coyote 101 (a more in depth look at the bar) and Inside the Songs. There are also a number of additional scenes , the theatrical trailer and the LeAnn Rimes music video.


          **My Opinion**
          The is a great film to watch with the girls. It's fun, sexy and romantic. What I love about the movie is the soundtrack. The songs the girls dance to in the bar are fun, and the songs that are sung by Violet are catchy hits. I think Piper Perabo was the perfect girl to play Violet, as she had actually just moved to New York to pursue a career. She could play the innocent naïve girl who wants to make it as a musician as well as playing the flirty Violet who gets up on top of the bar to strut her stuff. Adam Garcia is also a great actor. His accent makes the character of Kevin loveable and he gives the girls something to drool over. The plot of the film was great and it was not really too predictable. The Coyotes were great fun to watch and if there was a bar like that here I know plenty of people would be flocking to it.

          Good for anyone who loves chick flicks!

          This film is called Coyote Ugly and came out a long times ago, that would be the year 2000! I've seen this film many times on television and thought I'd buy it on dvd as I really enjoy watching it. This is a definate full on chick flick!

          This film is about Violet (played by Piper Perabo) who moves to the big city to try and start off a music career, when that doesnt seem to be going well, she needs to find a job. She ends up at a bar and becomes a 'Coyote'. A sexy woman who dances on a bar! Her dad is not happy when he see's her in the paper dancing around in next to nothing. Also she meets a man in this movie (played by Adam Garcia).

          This film is a definate must see for anyone who loves chick flicks. It hasnt really any slow or boring bits. Its a cheerful film most of the time.

          My favourite bit is when she is singing on the roof top of where she lives!! Brilliant. The bit I dont enjoy is the 'sex scene'. It isnt really explisit or anything but it doesnt seem like it should be there and feels uncomfortable.

          "Just for the record, I was only staring at your ass for the first 15 minutes!"

          I would definitely watch it again... even though I've seen this soooooo many times before. I would only recommend it to people who enjoy chick flicks. I enjoyed it. This film is cheap, around £3 brand new but obviously cheaper when you buy it 'used'.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A great film with a great story

          This film stars Piper Perabo as Violet a girl from a small town who moves to New York to be a songwriter. Violet is very shy and innocent but soon learns that getting her songs heard isn't going to be as easy as she hopes. She finds a job at a bar called Coyote Ugly which is hugely popular as the girls dance on the bar and here Violet gets to do a little bit of singing although not her own songs. She meets some great friends and also starts dating a guy she meets but things don't go to plan when her dad finds out what she is doing and her boyfriend ends up getting her the sack. Will Violet be able to get over her stage fright enough to sing her own songs.

          This is such a great film. The soundtrack is excellent and has some really great songs. The dancing on the bar makes it really fun and it is a film which I think appeals to both men and women. Women will love the story as it really is a feel good movie that shows you that dreams can come true and I think men will definately like the girls dancing on the bar. Piper Perabo is excellent in her role and is really good at singing and plays the vunerable shy girl role very well and is totally believable.

          It is not at all boring as there is always something happening and I think you can watch it again and again. It is easy to follow the story so it is a nice film to chill out with and relax.

          I would definately recommend this film for a great night in with some popcorn.

          Disadvantages

          great film with attitude

          This is a romantic comedy film about a girl who wants to make it as song writer in New York.

          Piper Perabo stars as Violet 'Jersey' Sanford the budding song writer who leaves a father (John Goodman) at their home in South Amboy New Jersey and travels to New York to follow her dream.

          While trying to work out the best way to get her music heard Violet stumbles into a night club and meets 'Mr O'Donnell' (Adam Garcia), she thinks he is in charge of finding new talent but he is really a member of the kitchen staff.

          After a series of bad luck Violet is broke and needs to find a job, while killing time in a nearby cafe she meets three girls who have just finished work. As luck would have it one of them is leaving and a job is available. Violet meets the owner and gets herself a job as a 'Coyote', serving drinks and performing dance routines on the bar, yes that's right ON the bar.

          Kevin O'Donnell meets up with Violet at the bar after tracking her down, a relationship begins and Kevin tries to help Violet realise her dream of becoming a song writer.

          This film is billed as a romantic comedy and even though the story is not hugely original it has aspects which will appeal to men and women. My husband particularly likes the scene where the three girls are performing on the bar and decide to pour water over themselves! I personally like the scene where Adam Garcia is performing on the bar and takes his top off, so you see what I mean universal appeal!

          This was the first film I saw with Piper Perabo and I have to say it is probably one of her best, however the real surprise has to be Adam Garcia as the very witty Kevin.

          Definite thumbs up, a perfect film to watch with your husband or boyfriend.

            Coyote Ugly

            Violet Sandford (Piper Perabo) is a songwriter and has dreams of writing songs for all the big musicians, but being from a small town she doesn't have much of a chance of being noticed. She decides to take the plunge and leave her family home where she lives with her dad to move to New York in the hopes of being noticed and making it big in the music industry.

            As soon as she arrives she sends out tapes to all the music companies but they are just returned to her and she doesn't seem to be having much luck. She is told that the best way for her music to become known and heard is to play at an open mike night. Violet isn't a performer and has stage fright and doesn't feel as though she is able to do this.

            While she is trying to make it in New York she realises that she is quickly running out of money and needs to get a job, she finds out that there is an opening at the Coyote ugly bar and manages to get a trial. The job isn't exactly what she expected, as well as manning the bar the staff are also expected to dance on the bar and entertain the customers. Violet is too shy to do this, and is also unable to naturally dance and exude the sex that they other staff do, she manages to fit in with the other staff Cammie (Izabella Milko) and Rachel (Bridget Moynahan).

            As well as finding a job she manages to find herself a boyfriend Kevin (Adam Garcia), to begin with they don't see eye to eye but after a few comical encounters they get to know each other a little better and start seeing a lot more of each other. Will she manage to make it big and will she managed to overcome her stage fright?

            I do really enjoy this movie, I like the fact that Violet is such an easy character to warm to. She is hard working and tries her best with everything that gets thrown her way. One of the things that I love about her character is that she doesn't want to be famous, fame is the last thing that she is looking for, she just wants to get her music out there and listened to, she just dreams of being successful at something that she loves. The chemistry between her and Kevin is believable and you really want them to stay together.

            Both me and my boyfriend love this film, for the women there is the love story and the whole emotional rollercoaster with her music and for the men there are the ladies at the bar! Even though the women dance on the bar for the men you don't lose any respect for them, they are in complete control and are what make the bar a success and they know it.

            I love the way that Violets confidence seems to grow throughout the whole film, after being thrown in at the deep end at the bar she seems to learn more from being at the bar and from the other women that work there. As soon as she starts working there her clothing and confidence improve and she becomes more sexy.

            LeAnn Rimes also plays apart in this film, at the end she sings in the Coyote Ugly bar. She sings one of her hits Can't fight the moonlight which was the song that Violet had written for her. I just found this a little bit too much, this was an amazing chance for her music to become more known to new people and for her to gain new fans but I just felt that the fact that they used a well known singer ruined it a little for me.

              The story is about Violet Sanford in life who wants to be a songwriter. She decides to move from her New Jersey home to New York with the idea to break through. Only it is always easier said than done and New York appears to be a though city. Nobody is really interested in her music and to make matters worse she gets broken into her apartment! She is broke and desperate for a job when she accidentally sees a number of women who operate a bar called Coyote Ugly. She decides to try to get a job here, but gets quite a bit to handle. It's all about entertainment and making sure the man and woman are having a good time. Whether this is something for her? And will she manage to break through?

              Acting Performance
              ----- ---------- ---------- ---------- ---------- ---------- ---------- -----

              The performances in this movie are fine, but not really good. They are fine for this type of film and entertaining enough to watch. Piper Perabo plays the lead role, an actress who I haven't heard of before. Violet's character has certainly not an easy time and struggling to "survive" and you can see that through her acting. She is credible and is also fun to watch. Adam Garcia plays the role of Kevin O'Donnell and is the love of Violet in the movie. He does not really have a very interesting role and does the whole movie fine. Another actress who is striking in the film is Maria Bello who plays the character of Lil, the owner of the bar and you don't want to get into a fight with her. Nice character and Maria is doing very well. Very nice to see.

              ----- ---------- ---------- ---------- ---------- ---------- ---------- -----
              Extras
              ----- ---------- ---------- ---------- ---------- ---------- ---------- -----

              There are a number of extras on the DVD including the explanation of a coyote. There is audio commentary during the film where the actresses talk about their experiences during filming, but above all very informal and lots of laughter. With the extra "looking for star talent" goes more deeply into the main character, including how the character was created. Further extras include a music video from Leann Rimes and a movie trailer.

              ----- ---------- ---------- ---------- ---------- ---------- ---------- -----
              Own opinion
              ----- ---------- ---------- ---------- ---------- ---------- ---------- -----

              It's been a while since I first saw this movie for me, but I enjoyed watching it again. Coyote Ugly is a romantic comedy, fun and easy and something different than normal. The story is mostly set in a bar where it's all about "sex sales". The staff must therefore ensure that they retain the attention of the men and just as many liquor sales. It makes the film more active and what is more interesting to watch. The performances may be certain good enough for this film. For those who are looking for some extras won't be disappointed. Definitely a fun movie what is worthwhile to watch.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                A girl has dreams of being a song writer.

                The film.
                Piper Perabo plays Violet. She is a young girl who is desperate to become a successful songwriter, but after moving to New York she finds herself struggling to be heard and ends up broke within a very short time.

                Unbelievably, although she is very shy and quiet, she ends up getting a job at a bar that is full of attitude and very popular, but even more, the bar maids get up on the bar and dance very provocatively as they serve drinks.
                Not being used to this Violet struggles badly but knows that if she is ever going to make anything happen in her life that she will have to join in the fun and become one of the main attractions.

                After meeting a young man, she realises that if she is not prepared to grab life with both hands and just go for it then she will never go anywhere or do anything.

                My opinion.
                This film was a great surprise for me. Not only did it have a really good story, it had humour, love, brilliant music, sexy women (very sexy women) and an amzing cast of actors.

                Piper Perabo plays her part amazingly well, really making you believe that she is the shy talented girl she is playing. But at the same time she comes across really hot and knows how to milk the camera.

                The rest of the cast do a great job to portray all the different personalities, hard as nails, cute but with attitude and tough but with a soft side, all those characteristics are present and go really well to create the story of a young girl trying her hardest to overcome amazing odds to make something of herself.

                The music in this film is probably the thing that everybody would remember most, utilising LeAnn Rimes to best of her ability. Every song sung works perfectly with its scene and makes you feel like getting up and dancing along.

                After a short while into the film I really started to feel for the main character and was desperate for her to succeed and go all the way. It really drew me in, which to me, means the creaters did their job well.

                I think this was a great, sexy, fun filled film with a deep underlying story and I would recommend to all to see.

                At less than a fiver from most shops this is a real bargain and would make a great night in!

                It runs for 1 hour and 37 mins and is rated a 12. It also has some very good music related extras on the disc.

                Enjoy!

                  Jersey tries to get her songs sung but faces challenges along the way

                  FILM ONLY REVIEW

                  Violet Sanford is a song writer and dreams of getting her song sung by the top names in the music business but in the small town she lives in she has no way of getting her work known. She decide to leave her comfortable life and move to New York in the hope of breaking into the business. She spends her time trying to give tapes to music companies but with no luck then one evening she spots a talent night and is duped into believing the kitchen hand is the club owner who will be able to help her. She soon works out that that he isn't and strikes a friendship with Kevin who vows to help her.

                  Violet is in need of money so when she see some girls with lots of cash she is interested in finding out what they do and soon she learns that they are Coyote's and work at the Coyote Ugly bar so she decided to go get herself a job. At the job she is not finding it easy as the other Coyote's parade around and dance in a sexy way on the bar to entertain the customers but Violet is too shy to do this.

                  Soon the manager of the bar has given Violet the new name of Jersey and is trying to encourage her to let go and enjoy her work. At the same time of working in the bar Jersey / Violet is still trying to get her writing heard but she now knows the only way this will happen is to sing her songs herself but as she suffers from stage fright this is going to be an impossible job for her.

                  Will Jersey with the help of the other Coyote's and Kevin be able to overcome her stage fright and fulfil her dream of getting her songs played or will she be forever in the shadows?

                  For some reason I never got around to watching this film but I did record it a few weeks ago now so last night took the plunge and finally sat down to watch and I have to say I was so glad I managed to give it a go as it really was a good film and much better than I expected it to be. I think the storyline was very good and although it may seem to have been done before this did have the added element of Violet / Jersey not actually wanting to be the famous front person but he one who just stayed out back and did the hard work, this for me is what made it much more watch able.

                  The role of Violet who later became known as Jersey was a very good one, I did instantly warm to her and loved how she was so hard working. She was played by Piper Perabo who is an unknown actress to me and I thought she did a fantastic job with the role. It was very nice to see her grow through the film ad change her way of life, I liked how she became stronger as the film went on. I also liked the addition of her father who was played by John Goodman, it was nice to get to know about her background and there was a good chemistry with the two actors when they were on screen together. I think I would have liked to have seen slightly more of John Goodman though as he did have a good character.

                  The other main role was that of Kevin who was played by Adam Garcia, he worked very well with the role of Violet and I think the chemistry between the two was lovely. There were a lot of other good actors and actress in the film and especially the girls who played the fellow Coyote's, they were a mixed bunch and showed a bit of variety to the storyline. The Coyote Ugly Bar owner was another role which I liked as she was a hard woman who managed to keep a club full of rowdy men in check but she did show a softer side when it came to her girls and this did work very well.

                  The film may seem more for the female audience but believe me the men will enjoy it too. There are plenty of parts when the Coyote's are dancing and being sexy on the bar and I think if hubby had watched this film with me he would have needed a drip tray to catch the drool! I don't think it was too over the top but it just seemed to fit in with the storyline very well and I did not find it out me off the film. The music throughout the film was also very good. It was quite mixed but we had a few great tracks. For me though the end song was the one which really stood out. I loved the addition of LeAnn Rimes to the cast at the very end but I wish it would have stopped with her singing as the few second after this were quite cheesy!

                  The film was made in 2000 but some of the clothes did look quite old fashioned but I think this film would still be able to hold up in today's market. The sets and costumes were all very good despite some of the ladies clothes being very revealing! The running time of the film is 100 minutes and I found this to be a great length with the story moving at a good pace from start to finish. The certificate is a 15 and I do agree with this as some of the dancing and bar scenes are not suitable for the younger audience.

                  As this is a film only review there are no bonus features to speak of.

                  I do recommend this film as it has a great storyline, brilliant acting and it has something for both men and women, the soundtrack is also another great part of this film.

                    Just Buy It

                    Coyote Ugly is an amaerican film based on the actual Coyote Ugly Saloon, the film was set in New York City and released in 2001. Cast includes Tyra Banks, Piper Perabo and Adam Garcia. Directed my Jerry Bruckheimer and features the music of Leanne Rimes.
                    Fantastic film which if you havent seen you dont know what you missing, a story of love and music with a great ending and all round brilliant film.

                    The Storyline:
                    Violet Sanford (Perabo) dreams of being a big shot songwriter so goes to follow her dreams in New York city. After trying and failing to hand her tapes into studios without luck she see's a job being offered in a local bar "Coyote Ugly." She doesn't realise the type of work she will be doing in the bar though: very sexy dancing on the bar, but she soon realises she needs to learn the ropes of singing, dancing and wild acts if she ever wants to keep this job.
                    One night while trying to get her music noticed by a scout she meets sexy bartender Kevin (Garcia) and they quickly become lovers, after a lot of problems.
                    But Violet has a problem the only way she can get her music out there is to sing her songs herself, but Violet has stage fright which she believes she inherited of her now dead mother. With Kevin's help she tries to overcome her terrible fear, but will she get over it in time to sing live and will she lose Kevin in the process?
                    The ending is great and really ties up all the lose ends with a cameo appearance from Leanne Rimes who sings "Cant Fight The Moonlight" on the bar of Coyote Ugly.
                    A lovely story of love and true courage which shows you can do anything when the lights go out! :)

                    You can buy it for around £5 from amazon.co.uk (not including P&P) so it's well worth the money, if you havent watched it yet, where have you been? Get to a shop and buy it!

                    heres one for the girls! very enjoyable musical move

                    This movie has all aspects of a rom com, but with enough sex and risque business for the men to like too!
                    I love watching movies that I dont have to think about, when Im doing the ironing or when I have friends over.
                    Now the DVD version I have is the extended cut, therefore there is a bit more nudity and a couple more swear words in it.

                    So the storyline is very basic and predictable, hence watching it when Im ironing, but I do love a good boogy me, and this is ideal for laughing and singing and a bit of dancing (on bars is not essential)

                    Now im not sure whose accents are real and whose are fake, but i find it quite funny sometimes to listen to their voices, they do make me laugh...and it is clear that Violet's singing voice is not really her own, its actually Le-Ann Rhymes.

                    Tyra Banks is a main person on the front cover but realistically she isnt in it for long.

                    The romance, lies, falling out, getting back together, disappointed families, health scares...they are all there and flow together nicely with the musice and the fear of performing on stage.

                    Generally a feel good movie that is great for girly nights, and that I would recommned for any girl whose guys wont watch rom coms...its got girls dancing on a bar, he cant say no to that now can he?/

                    A Great Movie with some Great Inspirational Moments

                    Okay so I wasn't entirely sure what to expect when I first saw this Film - I had simply gone to the Video Shop and asked what was new in.

                    This is a great Coming of Age Film and has the wonderful Piper Parabo in it.

                    It's about Violet Sandford who has dreams of becoming a Singer/Songwriter however she has Stage Fright!!

                    She moves to New York with the intentions of selling her Music to already established Artists. She ends up working at a Bar called Coyote Ugly where she has to get up and perform each night - But she simply cannot do it!! Until one night when there is a near-on riot in the Bar and she gets up and sings along to the Jukebox - She has them all in a tizzy and the boys nearly falling of their Chairs to get more of her!!

                    Of course there is a Love Interest - He's pretty gorgeous but too much of a Pretty Boy for me!! But he really brings Violet out of her shell and makes her realise what she wants out of Life.

                    Full of passion, excitement, fear, inspiration.

                    Coyote Ugly is actually a Chain of Real-Life Bars (I believe there is one in New York City), if you want to know more about the Bars then go to www.coyoteuglysaloon.com

                    Loved everything about it

                    Coyote Ugly was released in 2000 with a run time of 101 minutes. It's a romantic comedy/ drama based on the actual Coyote Ugly bar in New York.

                    Violet Sanford (Piper Perabo) is an aspiring songwriter and leaves the small town she lives in and her dad (John Goodman) to move to New York to persue her dreams. Violet tries everything possible to get her demo tape heard but is very unsuccessful.

                    One night, Violet meets Mr O'Donnell (Adam Garcia) who she gives her demo to, thinking he's a club booker but really he's Kevin who works in the kitchen. She goes back to the bar to get her tape back and they end up being friends after he says he likes her songs. Kevin advises Violet that she needs to take part in open mic nights in order to get her music heard but Violet has major stage fright problems.

                    A struggling Violet is desperate for cash and 'auditions' for a job at Coyote Ugly, a bar where everything and anything seems to happen, after hearing in a diner that someone will be leaving. Violet is pretty quiet and shy and the job doesnt come naturally to her. One night at the bar, all hell breaks loose and Violet decides to get up on the bar and sing to try and calm everyone down. Violet only seems able to sing other peoples songs and must decide between her job and her dreams.

                    Im a huge fan of musical film and this is one of my favourites. The main thing i love is that it is based on a real place. I like anything that can actually happen. A Coyote Ugly bar recently opened where i love but its nothing like the bar in the film, its really just a normal crappy bar that stole the name.

                    Coyote Ugly had quite a few big names make appearances like Tyra Banks, The Calling and LiAnn Rimes. Tyra Banks played a great Coyote and I wish she'd had a bigger part in the film. For me, although Violet came out of her shell, I dont think she fit the part of a Coyote very well. She wasnt anything compared to the other girls, especially Rachel who always gave her a hard time.

                    The film also has a fantastic soundtrack with music from LiAnn Rimes, Blondie, Billy Idol and many more. Its very rare that i buy CDs anymoer but i own this one because i loved it so much.

                    Coyote Ugly is a feel good film with a slightly darker feel than most films in this genre. The story is paced really well and i didnt find myself bored with it at any point.

                      This movie has the feel good factor and with everything else working so well the film is a winner

                      Coyote Ugly is a film where we see a lovely looking young girl of 21 named Violet Sanford (Piper Perabo) leaves her life in New Jersey in order to move to New York and pursue her dreams of being a song writer but as she struggles for money and finds herself needing to find work in order to keep herself from having to give up on her life long dream. Violet finds work in a local bar named Coyote Ugly where beatiful women call the shots and entertain their customers with their own unique way of keeping bar.
                      Violet along the way meets Kevin O'Donnell (Adam Garcia) who she falls for in a big way but as she struggles to make it with her song writing can Kevin work his magic to bring Violet out of her shell and get her over her stage fright?

                      This film is one that upon seeing the first time I simply loved. The film is put together with a cast of unknowns on the whole and this for me is one of the best things about the movie as the cast all suit their roles perfectly. The movie has a plot that is worked well (other movies have done similar style stories but this one has one of the strongest overall plots for a movie of this style) and when married with a great script and cast the movie just feels right. The soundtrack is one of the best from a movie of recent times and thanks to this you will find that you are singing the songs for days after watching the movie.

                      All in all one of those romantic movies which has a feel good atmoshpere throughout and one that I would recommend to all.

                    Coyote Ugly is either a girls' film for boys or a boys' film for girls. Either way, it's undemanding tosh that remixes 80s "classics" like Fame, Cocktail, Flashdance and Dirty Dancing for the turn of the century. The main attraction is Coyote Ugly itself, a raucous New York bar run by tough-on-the-outside softie Lil (Maria Bello) where the drinks and the customers are straight and the girls who serve have to be skilled at lightning-fast mental maths when adding up complex rounds as well as a sort of clothed stripping as they line-dance, karaoke-wail or pole-hug on top of the often-flaming bar itself. The plot is a trifle about a shrinking violet actually called Violet (Piper Parabo) who comes to the big city to do one-better than her showbiz near-miss deceased mother and make it as a songwriter but is paralysed by a stage-fright she only overcomes after a couple of energetic nights working the crowds at Coyote Ugly. There's the usual on-off romance, with a sensitive Australian bloke (Adam Garcia) and some soap with an estranged Dad (always-good-value John Goodman) who is hospitalised at just the right moment to prompt a family revelation and a reunion that pays off with a not-unexpected happy ending. It all boils down to a 12-certificate teenage magazine romance set in what amounts to a nudie bar where there's no actual nudity. Both the men in the heroine's life seriously question whether writhing suggestively for drunken lechers is an empowering activity for an independent girl but since that's more or less the film's strongest visual effect the script has to come down on the side of the girls--if not the customers. The supporting babes--Russian blonde Cammie (Izabella Miko), ferocious brunette Rachel (Bridget Moynahan) and upwardly-mobile Zoe (Tyra Banks)--gyrate and model Spice Girls cast-off gear, but make less of an impression than Melanie Lynskey (the "other one" from Heavenly Creatures) as the devoted, slightly dumpy best friend back home. Like most Jerry Bruckheimer products, it's slickly put-together, at once exciting and predictable, cut like a commercial or a pop promo, directed by a non-entity (David McNally), fantastical yet blue-collar "real" and self-destructs in the mind after viewing. --Kim NewmanOn the DVD: The disc is jammed with special features and bonus material: "Search for the Stars" outlines the quest to find the young cast members; "Inside the Song" offers an analysis of the tunes, a voiceover by LeAnn Rimes and the thoughts of songwriter Diana Warren; "Coyote 101"describes the ins and outs of the bar itself, from the drink mixes to the dancers; while "Action Overload" simply shows full-force action sequences from the film. The disc also contains four deleted scenes, the LeAnn Rimes music video, "Can't fight the Moonlight", the theatrical trailer and an energetic commentary by the Coyotes themselves, Tara Banks, Maria Bello, Izabella Miko, Bridget Moynahan and Piper Perbo. Although the disc certainly doesn't scrimp on the special features front, each one tends to be fairly short and uninformative, lacking detail. The DVD itself gives the visual and audio excellence you would expect from a recent Hollywood blockbuster with a 5.1 audio ratio and crisp widescreen format of 2.35:1. --Nikki Disney
