With an unbeatable cast of hot stars including Piper Perabo and Maria Bello, this sexy comedy is even more intoxicating. Moving to New York to pursue her dreams of becoming a famous songwriter, Violet Sanford (Perabo) finds herself desperate and broke. Ironically, the shy, innocent Violet lands a job as a barmaid at the hottest nightclub in town: Coyote Ugly. Overflowing with attitude, the Coyotes spend more time on top of the bar than behind it, tantalizing the standing-room-only crowd with their outrageous antics!

Sexist, shallow movie about bar has sex, lots of drinking.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Coyote Ugly is a 2000 movie in which Piper Perabo plays a struggling songwriter in New York City who finds work as a bartender in a raucous dive bar. There's one sex scene between the male and female lead in which breasts are shown, and female buttocks are covered only by a thong. Violet does something of a striptease for her beau, ostensibly to make him nervous. There are a number of jokes about the girls' sexual availability but no evidence that they engage in casual sex. Occasional sex-themed insinuations and one-liners are heard. Infrequent profanity includes "d--k," "bitch," "hell," and "ass." Drinking, even drinking to excess, is handled lightheartedly, and drinking hard liquor is considered a sign of strength. Bar fights are shown, with punches and broken bottles. Gratuitous product placement occurs in some scenes: characters shown eating from clearly marked fast-food packages, and dialogue that directly mentions products.
