But anyway, welcome to the April 20th edition of Tuesday Couch Potatoes where we post about a movie each week. This week, we will feature Year 2000 Movies. It may be of any genre, as long as it was officially released in the Year 2000, a very significant year because it is the second millennium, the turn of another century and ushered in a lot of changes.
My pick for this week: Coyote Ugly. Released on the wide screen in August 2000 by Touchstone Pictures and directed by David McNally and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, this movie is your typical "American Dream" movie. It is about Violet Sanford who left her small hometown, father and friends to pursue her dreams of becoming a songwriter in New York City. When she arrives New York City, she was unsuccessful in trying to get her demo tapes noticed. Running out of money, she was able to convince Lil, the bar owner of "Coyote Ugly", to hire her. She then had to learn to ropes of singing, dancing and performing wild acts before a rowdy crowd. She finally landed on a deal after a successful performance at an open night mic at the Bowery Ballroom, a music venue in the Bowery section of New York City.
I love the script of this movie.. and of course the crazy dance moves and the songs.
Do you know why it's called Coyote Ugly in the first place? The slang term refers to the feeling of waking up after a one-night stand, and discovering that your arm is underneath someone who is so physically repulsive that you would gladly gnaw it off without waking the person just so you can get away without being discovered. Coyotes are known to gnaw off limbs if they are stuck in a trap in order to facilitate escape.
Here's a trailer if you still haven't seen this one:
