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

As slick and mindless as one might expect...

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.

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

A movie about a bunch of effortlessly attractive, empty-headed people who manage to constantly have fun at even the most menial of jobs . . . give me some reason to care!

Coyote Ugly is neither bad enough to be a cult film, nor good enough to be interesting.

Gina Wendkos' screenplay manages to make "Flashdance" seem plot-heavy by comparison. ...we see the lovely faces of Perabo, Miko and Moynahan and the swinging hips and stomping feet of three anonymous dance doubles.

Solamente es recomendable ver en uno de esos días en los que no hay absolutamente nada que hacer. Para dar pena ajena.

turns out to be a duel between the tawdry and the maudlin, and the latter is, unfortunately, victorious.

Coyote Ugly may be the most disappointing movie of the summer.

The kind of excrescence that makes you wonder if the Taliban, the French and all the other foreigners who whine about the awfulness of Hollywood "product" might actually have a point.

Meretricious excuse for an inspirational tale.

Before the opening credits are even done rolling, Coyote Ugly establishes early on how bad it.

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.

A scarily stupid mix of Flashdance superficiality and small-town-girl-conquers-the-music-biz cliches.

A soundtrack pretending to be a story.

Its inability to follow through simply underscores the filmmakers' cynicism and gutlessness.

Everything about Coyote Ugly is taken from the cliché catalog.
