Product Description

From hit-making producer Jerry Bruckheimer (GONE IN 60 SECONDS, ARMEGEDDON) comes COYOTE UGLY, the intoxicating sexy comedy starring an unbeatable cast of hot new stars inlcuding Piper Perabo (ROCKY AND BULLWINKLE) and Maria Bello (PAYBACK). Moving to New York to pursue her dream of becoming a famous songwriter, Violet Sanford (Perabo) finds herself desperate and broke. Through a twist of fate, the shy, innocent Violet lands a job as one of the barmaids at the hottest nightclub in town -- the down and dirty, wild and fun Coyote Ugly. Pouring drinks and overflowing with attitude, the "Coyotes" spend more time on top of the bar than behind it, tantalizing the standing-room-only crowd with their outrageous antics! It's one wild adventure for a small-town girl chasing her dream in the big city.


As a producer, Jerry Bruckheimer makes movies for guys, mostly action films like Top Gun and Gone in 60 Seconds. The ones he makes that feature women, such as Flashdance and now Coyote Ugly, broaden their appeal with a fondness for "strong women." For Bruckheimer, that means self-determined, attractive women who don't need men to get what they want. Is there anything sexier than that? In Coyote Ugly, the charming young waif Piper Perabo stars as Violet, a New Jersey waitress who moves to New York to make it big as a songwriter. She has absolutely no idea how the music business works, relying instead on her faith in her own abilities. In order to make ends meet, she gets a job in a bar called Coyote Ugly, where the bartenders are scantily clad women who dance on the bar and order around their mostly male clientele. Really, they are strippers who don't have to take off their clothes. In fact, the owner (Maria Bello) orders them to enact the first rule of strip clubs: "Appear available but never be available." Bruckheimer is smart enough to focus on the naive girl instead of the seamier side of the story, following her as she realizes her dream and picks up a disposable but nice man along the way. Further "empowering" the female figures in the film, Zoe (Tyra Banks), the bartender whom Violet is replacing, leaves in order to go to law school. See? They're as smart as they are sexy! Then there's John Goodman, who turns in an absolutely charming performance as Violet's concerned father. This is a sweet and inoffensive film as long as you don't think too much about it. --Andy Spletzer

"Coyote Ugly" has to be the best romantic dramedy this year, even though this year has had it's share of bad romances-Autumn in New York, Down to You and The Next Best Thing just to name a few. The bar dancing scenes are incredible accompanied by a fantastic soundtrack including one of my favorites, "Pour Some Sugar on Me". Plus there are two new great songs from LeAnn Rimes,who is also in the movie, but I'm not reviewing the soundtrack so I'll skip this. And that's just the stuff you see in the previews. What you don't see on the surface through the previews are the great performances from newcomer Piper Perabo, Adam Garcia and the always great John Goodman. the story is mainly about Piper Perabo's character, nicknamed Jersey, who goes into the big city trying to get someone to perform her well written songs. She runs into several problems with a new boyfriend, some disagreements with her father, and many crazy encounters at the bar "Coyote Ugly". The title is explained in the movie to mean when you go home with a one night stand after a night of big drinking and you wake up with someone so ugly that you would rather chew your arm off than wake them up to know you're leaving. Believe me, you're not going to feel that way leaving this one! BUY THIS MOVIE!!!

Coyote Ugly is a nice movie,and although it may not be apparent from the trailer or the pictures from the movie,there is a fine story included,to add to the pleasure of seeing beautiful ladies dancing to great songs on the top of a bar.
It is the story of a young lady,Violet,who leaves South Amboy N.J. and goes to New York to become a famous songwriter.There is one slight problem though,she has stagefright and it is not easy to make people hear your songs if you can not sing them.On top of that,her house gets robbed and she runs out of money.At that point,she learns about the bar named Coyote Ugly (why would a bar be named like that?) and gets a chance to work there.In the meantime,she also meets Kevin O'Donnel,a young Australian and a love interest starts between them.The rest is the funny adaptation of Violet to the crazy and wild environment of Coyote Ugly and her struggle to overcome her stagefright to finally make it to the bigtime.
The songs are definitely worth mentioning,both because they are important to the story of Violet and because they are really beautiful.Leanne Rimes is the voice of Violet singing and she does a great job altering her voice to make us believe that it is really Violet singing.
The DVD includes a lot of extras,and also some deleted scenes which for me are the most important element of any dvd's bonus features.
Just don't bother with how cheesy the storyline is,and how much this movie looks like a lot of movies we have seen before.Then I guarantee you will have fun watching Coyote Ugly.

I went into this film with not one clue as to what it was about. I had heard Jessica Simpson was up for a role at one stage and assumed it was to be your typical teen-flick for young, annoying girls - I was dead-wrong. As a huge movie fan, and one who enjoys strong stories like Seven and American History X, I can assure you that it takes a lot to impress me. I'm not saying this is an original story, or that it packs a punch like those two films, but it certainly is an enjoyable film with strong characters that you really come to like very quickly. Maria Bello is fantastic as the straight-talking owner of Coyote Ugly, and Adam Garcia plays a sweet and noble comic collector to perfection. Don't trust the reviews that say this is crap - the story is solid, the cast is flawless and the music will have you out to buy the soundtrack in no time.

Since 2003, I have loved Coyote Ugly. To me, this blu ray exceeds all expectations. The extended cut edition has the extended love scene and a few new clips in the movie. I feel the extended cut fits the movie better, as it adds a better feel to the movie. Perhaps the theatrical version could be for watching around others who may not want to see the nudity and suggestive scenes.


Violet Sanford (Piper Perabo) is aspiring songwriter who moves to New York from New Jersey to set out on her mother's footsteps to become famous. However, there is one small catch -- Violet cannot sing her own songs she's written; she can only sing other's songs. In New York, she meets Kevin O'Donnell (Adam Garcia), an attractive Australian who balances several part time jobs on the street. In an exchange, they meet and slowly fall in love, as Kevin helps her overcome her stage fright. Violet gets a job at the Coyote Ugly, and starts to stray from the path her father intended when she leaves home. Her father, played by the witty John Goodman, starts being concerned when she ends up famous in the paper -- for reasons he didn't anticipate. Violet slowly learns to overcome her fear with a push from her friends and boyfriend, and gets her song sung by LeAnn Rimes, who plays herself in the movie.

I would give this movie a 10/10, because I love how it still is watchable to this day. Now I own it and don't have to wait for it to be on TV.
