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 »

Can't fight the moonlight.
9 April 2007 | by dy158See all my reviews

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.
