Violet Sanford, a girl in her early 20s, goes to the Big Apple to pursue a dream of becoming a songwriter. While waiting for her dream to come true, she lands a day job as a bar maid at a nightclub called Coyote Ugly, the city's newest hot spot. Here, the all-female employees cater to the largely male clientele by treating them with a good deal of sass. As Violet starts work, her aspirations are at least temporarily sidelined by the notoriety she receives at the bar. She also meets the team of sexy, resourceful female employees, who provoke the clientele and press with their mischief. Includes both the theatrical and unrated extended versions.
