Coyote Ugly | 2000 | PG-13 | - 5.2.4

An aspiring songwriter from New Jersey (Piper Perabo) moves to New York City to start her career but ends up working in a wild bar instead. Also with Maria Bello, Tyra Banks, Izabella Miko, Bridget Moynahan, Adam Garcia and John Goodman. [1:50]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Some sexual innuendo and several kisses. A woman takes off her shirt and skirt in front of a man (we see part of her panties and most of her bra through a transparent tank top), then she kisses him and takes off his shirt; in a post-coitus scene, the camera pans up his sheet-covered legs and bare chest as he lies in bed, and we also see her with a sheet wrapped around her body. Several scenes of women in midriff- and cleavage-revealing tops dancing suggestively on a bar counter, sometimes with each other; in one scene the women repeatedly pour water all over each other (we see a few close-ups of their chests), in another scene two women pull up a man's shirt and pour alcohol on his chest and in his mouth, in another scene a few women remove their bras and a few women are seen wearing bras, and in another scene a man puts his hands on a woman's hips while trying to dance with her (she pushes him away). Twice, a man is auctioned off to the highest female bidder: in one scene a man comically dances on a bar counter and shows the top of his underwear, and in the other scene a man removes his shirt and reveals a bit of his underwear while dancing suggestively on a bar counter (the highest bidder kisses his bare chest comically). At a baseball game a woman takes off her jersey (her bra is visible) and briefly strokes a bat (we see a man's surprised reaction to this). Part of a woman's panties and bra are visible when she's changing clothes; also, we see the silhouette of a woman's torso from the side as she's putting on a shirt. We see many women in cleavage-revealing tops, a man wearing boxers and an open shirt, and a woman's bare legs and the very bottom of her buttocks while she's dancing on a bar counter.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - A couple of scuffles and punches in a bar; in one scene, many people are involved. A man pulls another off a bar, punches him repeatedly, then throws him through the front of a jukebox (one of the men is seen with a slightly bloody lip afterwards). A woman is pulled off a bar counter and into a crowd and appears to be fighting off a group of men. A man is pushed out of a bar. In a scene played for laughs, a woman backhands a man and knocks him off his chair. We see a person with a broken leg recovering in a hospital bed (we learn the person was hit by a car), and in a later scene the person uses crutches (the person hits the cast against a table and yells loudly, in a scene played for laughs). A woman spits alcohol on a flame, making a large fireball.

LANGUAGE 4 - Several anatomical references, a few scatological references, several mild obscenities, a couple of religious profanities, and a few insults.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
