Consensus: Well, the women in this film are incredibly attractive and flaunt that fact quite a lot. Unfortunatly, that's all there is to the film. The script is almost as big a joke as the charactors, and everything else follows the same path. If you're looking for a tease then see this flick, otherwise stay as far away as possible.

Coyote Ugly is profoundly stupid, earnestly inept at conveying a story and hellbent on wallowing in its shallow emotional manipulations.

Does Jerry Bruckheimer have the same nagging feeling of deja vu as he compares each new screenplay to those that have gone before?

As slick and mindless as one might expect...

It goes down easy, like a wine-cooler shot with a chaser of Yoo-Hoo.

Sexist, shallow and silly. Teens+.

There were certain aspects that I loved.... It had to do with hot, sexy women dancing on a bar in a wet T-shirt contest.

Its view of women as objectified but unavailable sex toys is so retrograde it would be maddening if the movie weren't such an utter piece of fluff so conceptually barren it might as well be a music video.

The cast fleshes out the cliches exuberantly and with little irony, which is something of a relief.

I wouldn't necessarily recommend Coyote Ugly to anyone, but I wouldn't use the DVD inserts as toilet paper either.

One of those movies you secretly love, but don't own up to. Trashy and fun.

The parts with the dancing at the bar are mildly entertaining. The rest is predictable, sappy and forgettable. Nothing special here.

An ok film, a lot of style and not a great deal of substance. It's far too predictable but kinda fun at the same time.

Coyote Ugly is a film I first watched as a 15 year old and loved it (I wonder why..). 10 years on and slightly less superficial, i'm left watching a chick… More
