An Intro From Dave
A year ago I was tasked with a top secret mission. Melanie: I want a list for next July. Like the opposite of everybody else’s “Christmas in July”. Something with a “Dave spin” on it. So my mind went to work. It almost took on several different incarnations before landing here. It could have Christmas Horror. It could have been Halloween themed. Then it started as a random list of movies that got buried in the sands of time that people forgot. That's actually our specialty. But I also included a few that made money but seemed to have been forgotten since then, as I haven’t heard much about them since their release. So hop in, buckle your seatbelt, and remember to keep your hands inside the ride at all times.
Day 19 - Coyote Ugly (2000) - Dave
An aspiring songwriter takes a job at a bar while waiting for her big break. Fun little film. One point of note for me-- I will always identify this movie with the Kevin Bacon film "Hollow Man" because both opened the same weekend. I wanted to see both and had to decide which to see first. Ended up seeing both that weekend instead of putting one off. Ended up liking this one more. Wasn't impressed with "Hollow Man" too much.
Jenn Says - This movie I wasn’t so sure about, but after seeing it I loved it. "Coyote Ugly" is one of those that you shouldn’t judge it before watching. Girl wants too be a song writer, but feels like she’s going nowhere starts too work at a bar where the bartenders don’t just bartend but dance as well. Does this shy girl finally come out of her shell and into her own, well maybe musers and that’s all I’ll say.
Melanie Says - I LOVE this movie! I can't even tell you how many times I have watched it. I will forever associate the Kid Rock song "Cowboy" with this movie, I wanted to dance on a bar, (I tended bar when this came out but it was NOTHING like this), I loved the side characters, and there's a decent romance story too. It's cheesy, fabulous, and everyone should watch it. You know they even had a reality show "The Ultimate Coyote Ugly Search" that ran for 2 seasons after this! Oh and if you watch the cancelled Fox show "The Big Leap" also staring Piper Perabo you will see at least a great nod to this movie!
Have you seen it? What did you think?
