Subtitle Coyote Ugly
Piper Perabo stars as Violet Sanford, a naive Jersey transplant to the big city of New York. She has dreams of finding musical superstardom as a songwriter (having apparently listened to one too many Jewel albums), so she shops her demo tape around to all the big record companies with no luck. She further strikes out after hitting on studly young booking agent Kevin O'Donnell, who turns out to be a fraud. So she does what any other self-respecting wanna-be musician would do, she gets a job as a bar-straddling, beer-slinging, boob thrusting "coyote" at a local bar to make ends meet.
subtitle Coyote Ugly
It's here that 'Coyote Ugly' really begins, as the movie is purely an excuse to rip off 'Flashdance's music video numbers, only instead of Jennifer Beals sweatin' to Michael Sembello, we get Perabo juggling a Heineken while straddling the laps of drunk frat guys (is this feminist progress?) Violet also quickly gets adopted by her fellow coyotes, who are at first one tough bunch. There's Maria Bello, the bar-owner-with-a-heart-of-gold. A young Bridget Moynahan, doing a mean impersonation of Gina Gershon in 'Showgirls' (they even have the same bitchy-rival part). And best of all, "America's Next Top Model' tyrant Tyra Banks, who still can't act a whit. If these wafer-thin characters doing their tightly choreographed bar/dance numbers are the most ridiculous part of the film, they are also its only highlight -- there really is no other reason for 'Coyote Ugly' to exist other than to give us camp lovers the thrill of watching Perabo almost light herself on fire while trying to ignite a trail of Jack Daniels to impress the clientele.
The only thing saving 'Coyote Ugly' from being pure sexist twaddle is the fact that there really is a "coyote" bar with dancing babes who perform juggling acts for tips (no, it's not called Hooters). That gives the film a smidge of realism, at least in the sense that it's not hard to imagine that the real Coyote Ugly is filled with girls with dreams bigger than their bank accounts. Of course, Bruckheimer and director David McNally (whose only other big-screen credit is Bruckheimer's 'Kangaroo Jack') aren't particularly interested in making a documentary. This is pure fluff designed to appeal to the fantasies of teenage girls (or, rather, teenage girls as they exist in Bruckheimer and McNally's fantasies), with Violet plowing ahead to realize her big dream while facing seemingly insurmountable obstacles. We know how this story is going to turn out, though -- do you think the puppy-dog O'Donnell (played forgettably by one-time "It" boy Adam Garcia) will get Violet a big gig at an open mic night, and she'll land a recording contract!? -- making 'Coyote Ugly' about as subversive and insightful as an episode of "Hannah Montana."
Surround use doesn't work up much energy. Even during the big choreographed bar sequences, the roaring music and crowd don't light up the soundfield. Discrete effects feel too restrained, and the songs and score are also pushed to the front. Dynamics are still very good, however, with the polished sheen you'd expect from a major studio film. Low bass is ample (if not truly ass-kickin'), and there is a solid amount of expansiveness and cleanliness to the rest of the spectrum. Dialogue is perhaps a tad too low in the mix, but I was still able to listen to the track without mucking with the volume or resorting to subtitles. No, 'Coyote Ugly' is no great shakes, but I guess it's still fine for what it is.
'Coyote Ugly' is one of those discs that has a ton of bulletpoints on the back of the box, but the material is so superficial it makes the movie's script look deep by comparison. This stuff is as flimsy as cardboard. (Disney also hasn't put much effort into buffing it up for high-def, as all the video-based extras are 480i/MPEG-2 only. English, French and Spanish subtitle options are also offered.)
