  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
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.

DVD Picture:
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)
