Coyote Ugly

Yesterday I happened to catch Coyote Ugly on the TV. It is one of my all time favourite movies, and it has an appeal which has not died down for me in a good 7 years.

The story is about a small town Jersey girl who come to the Big Bad Apple with hopes of becoming a songwriter, something which her mom wanted to do, but never went about pursuing. The story moves on to show her struggle for getting her songs to be heard, and then gradually towards the more basic deal of earning to pay her monthly rent. In the process she starts to tend to the bar at Coyote Ugly, a bar.

Coyote Ugly is a bar run by women, and a hot bar! Women dancing on the bar, bar tending with extreme agility and above all the blaring music and the relaxed fun atmosphere. Each woman at this bar has a story and they all work at Coyote Ugly to move towards their dream.

I can not explain more about this movie, but the music and underlying feeling of all the characters make the movie thoroughly enjoyable. Its about leaving home, hoping to achieve what you set out to and pushing your way through all that comes your way.

In case you have not seen it, do not miss it.


  1. i think its the character that each one of those girls have - the strength they seem to possess that attracts women like you and me :) also, the music and those moves...omph! :D it must take such courage and confidence to get up infront of a crowd like that!

    i like the movie too :)

  2. I love this movie! Leann Rimes' songs in the movie are great, too.

  3. Interesting choice! It's usually the guys who like this movie. :)

    BTW, have you seen Working Girl?

  4. This was our hostel favorite. Whenever it came on Star Movies, we'd all stay in and watch the movie. Onetime we even went to a pub in Pune and all of us kicked off our heels and danced on the bar. 40 girls dancing on the bar. The owner was the happiest and we got drinks on the house :P

  5. I have heard so much abt the movie but i m yet to watch it. will watch it soon


Thank you for stopping by. I would love to hear your thoughts ...
