VI­O­LET SAN­FORD ( COY­OTE UGLY, 2000)

SundayXtra - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Young Vi­o­let ( Piper Per­abo) is just a sweet New Jersey gal with dreams of be­com­ing a suc­cess­ful song­writer in the big city. But — wacky irony alert! — she’s got a bru­tal case of stage fright and just can’t bring her­self to per­form in pub­lic. Luck­ily, she can bring her­self to dress up in skimpy out­fits and dance to pseudo-coun­try songs at Coy­ote Ugly, which, nat­u­rally, qual­i­fies her to be­come a bar­tender there. Even­tu­ally, Vi­o­let fig­ures out how to over­come her stage fright ( she’ll just per­form in the dark! Ge­nius!) and makes it to the big time, pen­ning medi­ocre pop songs for the likes of LeAnn Rimes. Aim high, kids!
