Offers two ugly forced ads before the menu, and includes audio commentary by the stars, selected scenes commentary by Jerry Bruckheimer or David McNally, a making-of featurette, short featurettes on the casting, songs, and bartending; additional scenes; LeAnn Rimes music video, and the theatrical trailer.
Determined would-be songwriter Violet Sanford (Perabo) is making the big move to the Big Apple to pursue her dream. With little luck, she is forced to take a job and finds her true calling at a wild and crazy bar known as Coyote Ugly. Along with other outrageous barmaids, Violet learns to flip tequlia bottles, toss water and alcohol on the cheering crowd, and shake her thang on top of the bar.
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits sharp and detailed images with excellent definition throughout. Colors are bold and vibrant, with balanced fleshtones and deep, solid blacks. Contrast and shadow detail are nicely rendered throughout. There are no blatant distractions, only some very minor and infrequent edge enhancement, for a picture that should surely delight in all aspects of image quality. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reading Widescreen Review for the past four years has been a liberating experience for me. Issue after issue you continue to write the most intelligent, full depth, and logical reviews and you do not pull any punches. I've bought many of my home theatre items after reading about them in WSR, and I must say they perform exactly as you have written in your reviews. I'll be a customer for a long, long time. Thanks for a great magazine.
