Sexy, romantic comedy about a girl in her early 20s named Violet Sanford going to NYC to pursue a dream of becoming a songwriter. Violet gets a "day" job as a bar maid at a nightclub called Coyote Ugly. Coyote Ugly is the city's newest hot spot where the employees are a team of sexy, resourceful women that provoke the clientele and press with their mischief. Written by
Lil lists the drinks the bar serves as "Jim, Jack, Johnny Red, Johnny Black, and Jose; all my favorite men. You can have it any way you like it, as long as it's in a shot glass." However, when Violet first shows up to ask for a job she is asked to carry a case down the stairs she carries a case of Crown Royal.
Lil is being clever in listing alcohol with men's names in them. Only the ones with men's names. Crown Royal isn't a man's name, but it's a bar and it doesn't mean she doesn't serve other types of alcohol. It's also a very busy night and it's succinct. A few minutes later, a customer orders 8 shots (4 Canadian, 4 south of the border). None of those men are Canadian, so if he ordered it, she must carry it (Crown Royal is Canadian). Actually, no self-respecting of any caliber would limit it's libations to only 5 name-brand liquors, let alone only 2 bourbons, 2 scotches and a tequila. See more »
Hi. I'm Violet Sanford. I just recently moved to New York and I was wondering if you would give my tape to one of your artists.

I was not disappointed with "Coyote Ugly". It made me feel good and we need this kind of film these days with all that's going-on.It was no worse than "Flashdance" or "Footloose" which also had little storyline and average acting. I enjoyed it and it was what I had expected.Many of you gave it negative criticisms; what did they expect from a film about a young girl coming to the city? This was a simple story about a young shy girl with dreams trying to make it in show business; which is hard if you don't have the right connections.The dance numbers and bar scene were very realistic. As a New Yorker, I was happy to see that she wasn't mugged or worse as many films about New York portray.I'd like a sequel.
