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.
January 1, 2000
The acting is amateurish, the dialogue is painful to hear and the plot is about as spontaneous as the Republican National Convention.
January 1, 2000
A talented young cast in service of a project that's every bit as shrewd as it is shrill and silly.

It goes down easy, like a wine-cooler shot with a chaser of Yoo-Hoo.
January 1, 2000
All hope is lost.

A mangy dog of a movie.

When movies are this bad, it's almost hard not to recommend them.

Coyote Ugly may be the most disappointing movie of the summer.
January 1, 2000
Sappy story about a struggling songwriter set in and around a Manhattan bar that certainly isn't in the meat-packing district by accident.

More like Coyote Awful.
January 1, 2000
Coyote Ugly is so filled with movie cliches and focus-group-tested ideas that it's hard to believe it happened any other way.
January 1, 2000
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.
January 1, 2000
A simpering love story.

The result is underwelming.

It's no picnic.
January 1, 2000
Does Jerry Bruckheimer have the same nagging feeling of deja vu as he compares each new screenplay to those that have gone before?

January 1, 2000
A movie that's the 'follow your dream' equivalent of singing karaoke along with a DVD of Flashdance.

It looks like a big-budget version of a Miller's Genuine Draft commercial.

Coyote Ugly is profoundly stupid, earnestly inept at conveying a story and hellbent on wallowing in its shallow emotional manipulations.
January 1, 2000
The father-daughter subplot packs all the emotional heft of Madonna's Papa Don't Preach video.
January 1, 2000
An authentically spirited popcorn movie.
January 1, 2000
A shameless but very watchable piece of youthful romantic fantasy.
