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
Kevin Smith revealed on the Dogma (1999) commentary track that he did uncredited work on the script. He has also said that the one story element of this movie that most would believe could be attributed to him (Adam Garcia's character being into comic books) wasn't his idea at all. See more »
At the time Coyote Ugly was filmed and released, LeAnn Rimes had not yet turned 21. The bar is not a nightclub and there should definitely have been a problem with her entering its doors. Lil, the owner, generally seemed to be compliant with laws and would have been unlikely to have let an under aged singer up on the bar. See more »
Unrated extended cut restores scenes (ca. 6 minutes) that were deemed "unsuitable" for the American market and threatened the desired PG-13 rating. Added back was additional/extended footage in virtually every dance scene, a shopping scene with Cammie and Violet and a sex scene with Violet and Kevin. See more »
Violet Sanford is an aspiring songwriter. The young woman from the state of New Jersey finally packs her bags and move to New York to fulfil her dream.
Things weren't as rosy as she thought in the beginning. The demo tape being rejected, the apartment being broken into, leaving her with almost nothing. Everything was not according to what she had planned.
That is until she came across the newest nightclub in town - Coyote Ugly, where sexy, young women use all sorts of ways to draw in the crowds. With the songwriting ambitions on hold, Violet started her job there.
But will Violet still able to pursue the dream that her late mother never achieved?
The story of someone trying to make it big is always all too familiar. But it's always refreshing to see it being played out on the screen.
