    Release Date:

    From hit-making producer Jerry Bruckheimer (Gone In 60 Seconds, Armageddon) comes Coyote Ugly, the intoxicating sexy comedy starring an unbeatable cast of hot, new stars including 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.

    7 / 10
    I was never going to give this movie the time of day, but a friend of mine rented it and came by. So there you go. Notice that I am reviewing the region 2 disk, which oddly enough, was released only here, in Israel, to date.
    While it is definitely not the deepest of movies, it is not a complete failure - it has its moments here and there.
    The video transfer is very good. There are no compression signs at all and the dark scenes are rendered very nicely.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is good. While the movie lacks almost any kind of sound effect, the surrounds are used in various scenes where the music and singing are loud (and good, on occasion).
    The menus are all animated with sound.
    The extras include a commentary by the 5 female leads, a behind the scenes look, some deleted scenes and a music video.
    Bottom line - another senseless movie that shines on occasions. Give it a chance only if you are bored.
