COYOTE UGLY (2000) 7TWO, 6.30PM, PG, ROMANCE
Completely vacuous, this tale about Violet (Piper Perabo), an aspiring musician who moves to New York to pursue her big break, doesn’t do much to empower women but is easily consumable. Taking a job at watering hole Coyote Ugly, where dancing on the bar and flirting with the customers is all in a day’s work, Violet meets Kevin (Australia’s Adam Garcia) who tries to help her overcome her stage fright and realise her singing/song writing dreams. However, he disapproves of her day job, as does her father (John Goodman). Features a performance by country music star LeAnn Rimes.
