Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Violet: Do you have a reservation?
Lil: Uh, yeah, it's under, uh, "Cast Iron Heartless Bitch."
Violet: Could it be under "Stubborn and Pigheaded"?
Lil: Yes! That's the one.

Alternate Versions

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 »

Familiar story still has great energy, and works for me!!!
5 August 2000 | by bopdogSee all my reviews

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 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!
