Coyote Ugly: a pleasent escape,
This review is from: Coyote Ugly - Extended Cut [DVD] (DVD)
Well regardless of what any other reviewers may say, this film certainly is entertaining. Okay, okay if you are looking for a film with some deep meaning or an example monumental filmmaking go watch Battleship Potemkin but if a simple laugh and a giggle is all your after this film is for you.
The storyline is indeed a little predictable but nethertheless Coyote Ugly serves its purpose as a romping teen flick to the upmost!!! Its got some nice looking women for the men and some bitchy yet powerful female figures for the women, not to mention a reasonble male love interest.
Other reviewers comment on the fact that no one seems to be served in the bar and that they are all sober, well if you are looking for a realistic portrayal of bar life why don't you go sit in one with a video camera taping the ambience until an angry bodyguard throws you out thinking you are some strange pervert with a bar fetish!!! Realism is not what this film is aiming for a pleasent glimpse at the struggle of a song writter in New York, and if anyone finds the punters sober I suggest they watch the scene in which some of the bar maidsare near attacked by a hoard of drunken sailors on leave.
Anyway, all in all this film is perfect for a uplifting evening in. No it won't challenge your intellect and change your perception on life but it will provide a great escape from a hard day which has to be equally as valuale!!!
