Couch Potato Pickings – Coyote Ugly
Liliana Lovell founded the original Coyote Ugly bar in New York in 1993. Today there are bars in 13 locations across the US.

Most critics hated this film, so you may be wondering why I’ve chosen it today. Well, our Movie Talk strapline promises the good, the bad and the ugly on screen, doesn’t it? And, the fact is I actually quite like this movie. It’s certainly not the best in the world, but it’s entertaining enough and wins points from me for having Blondie and LeAnn Rimes on the soundtrack.

I have to say though that a Coyote Ugly bar is my idea of hell. I had opportunities to visit the saloon in two of its locations last year when I visited the US, but I didn’t take them. It was the last place I wanted to go.

There are loads of bars and clubs in the world of movies and I’m sure we all have a top five, real or fictional, that we’d love to visit. These are mine:

The Kit Kat Klub Cabaret

Chez Lui Victor/Victoria

Odyssey 2001 Saturday Night Fever

Studio 54 – (loosely based on ) The Last Days of Disco
