An interesting, excellent surprise. (by Gustavo Rodriguez)
I have to say that when I saw the trailer I thought this was going to be a film about some half naked women and some people drinking a lot. But, when the film ended I have to say I was really surprised. A good surprise. Some people will probably disagree with me but this is not a film about nudity or something like that, it is a film about following your dreams, about leaving home searching for something real. I think Piper Perabo is excellent in her role as Violet, who actually sings some of the songs in the film. I'd recommend it to everyone who wants to have a great time.
Actually Has Plot!!! (by Joey_Mac)
I couldn't have been more pleased with "Coyote Ugly". Being a huge New York fan, I loved the setting and atmosphere of the film. Piper Perabo was excellent as Violet and has a very promising film career, and Adam Garcia who play Kevin O'Donnel is my new fave actor. The songs, performed by LeAnn Rimes and written by Diane Warren could not have been any better especially "But I Do Love You" . The trailers although they are what made me want to see this film!!! mislead you greatly, and I think that's why critics panned this film. The advertising leads you to <more>
belive there's no plot further than a bunch of scantily clad chicks shaking it on a bar, but the movie has heart and substance and is very positive in inspiring people to follow their dreams. I recommend this film to almost all tastes!!! 9/10.
Coyote Ugly is a really cool film. Newcomer Piper Perabo puts in a brilliant performance as Violet "Jersey" Sanford. She was made for the role and Adam Garcia as Kevin O'Donnell is great too. He's a brilliant actor and dancer and looked great as always. He and Piper had such an amazing chemistry on the film, it was great. Melanie Lynskey puts in a small but cute performance as Violets best friend, Gloria and John Goodman is great as Violets dad, William. Maria Bello Lil. makes a really cool boss and is obviously the one who hires Violet to work at Coyote Ugly and Izabella <more>
Miko, Cammie. Bridget Moynahan, Rachel . and Del Pentecost Lou. make really good co-workers to the bar. With a small performance from Tyra Banks as Zoe. The music in the film is brilliant and it was really cool to see LeAnn Rimes in the film singing the theme tune to Coyote Ugly-'Can't fight the moonlight.' The soundtrack to movie is brilliant too and includes four LeAnn Rimes' songs. Among many other great tunes. Coyote Ugly is a great film. It's one for the guys and girls. Brilliant. 8-9/10.
This movie was a big surprise to me. (by loril731)
This movie was a big surprise to me. I expected to like it, but not as much as I did. The trailers don't do justice to the plot. It's a story of leaving home, making it on your own in the "big city", life and love, hopes and dreams. I know that sounds corny, but it's true. Add that to beautiful girls dancing on the bar, and you've got a hit all around! Don't be fooled by the trailers, this is not just a "guy movie."
a good time! (by tajarstarz0731)
i loved this movie, especially after seeing the ultimate coyote ugly search. on cmt. i really like the idea of the bar, and i love the idea of women being empowered, not having to take their clothes off, just servin' the whiskey and havin' a blast doin' it! although the plot line is a bit drab, the movie is accurate, especially Lil, who is that biting is real life not like i met her, just saw her on the coyote search the girls are hot, and the choreography is wonderful. the real bars are like this... probably MUCH better so don't be hating on Lil's bars just based on the <more>
movie! you have to see it to believe it... anyone interested in taking a road trip to a coyote ugly?! :D this movie was really good, and i hope it gave the saloon lots more business! all in all, thumbs up!
Made me want to watch it over and over again (by Chezthelpphreek)
I've loved this movie ever since I first saw it. The outline of this small town girl going out in search of her dreams in NYC, really provides a positive outlook for anyone wanting to get out their home with their parents and be out on their own in the big city. Before this movie, I had never heard of or seen Piper Perabo or Adam Garcia before, but now whenever I do see them in a movie, I remember what a great performance they gave in Coyote Ugly, and just that motivates me to see that particular movie. Definitely see this movie, because you won't be disappointed by any means. <more>
It's the perfect film for all people with all different tastes in movies. I'm not one to watch something over and over again, so that definitely says something.
Heartwarming story overcomes sappy bits. (by Bondo20)
Based on the true story about the crazy female run bar in New York City, Coyote Ugly becomes surprisingly believable despite the usual Hollywood bits. The story follows Violet Sanford Piper Perabo as she moves from small town New Jersey to the city to become a songwriter. Through her misfortunes she meets boyfriend Kevin O'Donnell Adam Garcia and the Coyotes and learns from each of them to overcome the stage fright that threatens to ruin her dreams.Many moments are sappy or overly dramatic but the majority is enthralling as all the characters are solidly built. The girls all have <more>
their own character but aren't so strictly chained to it that they become merely symbols instead of people. While the females may be on the screen the most, the two supporting males Kevin and William Sanford John Goodman provide the most heartwarming scenes. Goodman's performance provides subtle humor while his character struggles through the conflict of his daughter leaving and his desire to see her succeed. For an actor who has put in so many great performances, this one still manages to be one of his best.Coyote Ugly offers something enjoyable to everyone. Guys obviously will enjoy the attractive girls and the provocative dancing while girls can enjoy the strong female characters, each of which won't take crap from any of the men that surround them. Parents can enjoy the side story of the conflict between Violet and her father. Another feature to enjoy is the fabulous music with four songs performed by LeAnn Rimes with some smaller groups as well.Coyote Ugly crosses the unusual boundary of being both an exciting, fast-paced movie that gets the adrenaline flowing and a sensitive story with strong characters and brilliant acting to get the mind working. The result is a thoroughly rewarding movie experience.
Familiar story still has great energy, and works for me!!! (by bopdog)
Not bad, not bad. I read reviews that criticized the cliche-ness of this movie, and I can see their point. At times the plot made the characters a little bit annoying. But hey-- story cliches often become that way because they speak to universal "truths," or at least things that interest bunches of people over of time.This movie is interesting-- it is engaging, and even touching at times. I DID care about the characters throughout the story. I wanted to see how things would work out for them, and I wanted them to win. Sure, the plot is kind of predictable-- but the energy kept the <more>
theme in the forefront, and I AM interested in the theme presented here-- love, taking risks, courage, and all of that. The women actors were wonderful-- hot, sure, but also outrageous in an innocent kind of way. I had the sense that none of the characters in the movie, even the raunchy extras in the bar scenes, was belittled. I suspected the writers, director, cast, etc., had a basic affection for their subjects and topic.The dancing was great-- I noted "dancing doubles" in the credits for all of the girls-- and the bar tricks and stunts were fun. I enjoyed pretending that those stunts were even possible, and that they wouldn't have killed 7 people the first night they were tried in a real bar in real life. I gave this one an "8" out of 10. Go see it-- you'll like it!
Coyote Ugly is the best bar-flick since Cocktail (by simplysoda_19f)
I love "Coyote Ugly", even though it seems critics/reviewers had mixed opinions. I thought it was the best bar-flick since "Cocktail". If you haven't seen "Cocktail", it's a movie where Tom Cruise stars as a bartender, and he swirls bottles around and other cool tricks of the trade. In Coyote Ugly, you have Violet Piper Perabo who comes to NYC to become a singer/songwriter. While Violet's there she finds that nobody will accept her demos, so she goes looking for work and she finds a job in a local bar called, "Coyote Ugly". The bar is <more>
owned by Lil Maria Bello , Lil is a hardcore chick who treats her bar like it's her home. While Violet is there she also learns the tricks of the trade, and she also dances on top of the bar. I'm not going to tell you if Violet becomes a singer/songwriter or not, because that would wreck the movie, but I am going to tell you that this is a great movie. Personally, I would have to recommend this to anybody that has hopes and dreams of making it big. I'm giving this a 8 out of 10, because it has an amazing story, memorable characters and a lot of great lines, but I have to tell you one of the best parts is the theme song, "Can't Fight The Moonlight". So, if you love bar-flicks like "Cocktail" you'll love "Coyote Ugly".
