Coyote Ugly mistake picture

Continuity mistake: At the beginning "Pete" asks Violet for her autograph on a time card. She signs it and the "T" is not crossed, and when Pete puts it on the board it is crossed. Then at the end when Violet's dad buys it from Pete it is again not crossed. Also if you look at the "V" when she signs it and after Pete puts it up they are different. And lastly, when Violet signs her last name it is spaced but when Pete puts it up it is jumbled together. Her signature is different all around. (00:01:30 - 01:27:30)

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning at the Violet's going-away party, she and Gloria are up on the stage singing, from one cut to the other Violet and Gloria change places. (00:03:05)

Continuity mistake: During the scene between Piper Perabo and Melanie Lynskey, outside Violet's apartment in Chinatown, Melanie's character, Gloria, is wearing sunglasses on her head. Looking closely, you can notice the overhead lighting reflecting in her sunglasses. Apparently, the sunglasses were not dirtied enough for the light to disappear. (00:07:25)

Continuity mistake: When Gloria is saying goodbye to Violet outside Violet's new apartment and they hug, Violet has her arm up around Gloria's head, but a second later the camera shows the pair of them from a different angle and their arm positions have changed. (00:08:20)

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Violet writes "Right Kind of Wrong," she plays the first two chords of the song backwards on the keyboard. The chords in the song go from a higher chord to a lower chord, and she plays as if it was the other way, moving her right hand from the lower notes to the higher notes on the keyboard. (00:08:50)

Continuity mistake: When the real 'manager' comes outside to yell at "Mr. O'Donnell', you see the manager walk back into the club. If you look in the background of the next shot, you can see the manager walking through the door again. (00:13:25)

Continuity mistake: When Violet is at William Morris dealing with the receptionist, she disconnects his phone line. For two shots, his hands are raised above his shoulders, but when it cuts to show both actors, his hands are in front of him on the desk. (00:15:30)


Continuity mistake: When Piper leaves her apartment to go to the open mike and when she returns from the open mike, she's got two sets of her hair braided. However, at the open mike, her hair isn't braided. (00:15:55)

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning when Violet goes to the open mike night she is wearing jeans, but when she arrives home and finds her apartment broken into she is wearing a skirt and a different shirt. (The skirt and white shirt with the denim jacket that she wore for the first 2 or 3 days). (00:17:10)

Continuity mistake: When Violet returns to her apartment to find it has been robbed, not only is she wearing a different outfit, but she seems to have lost her guitar. (00:17:10)

Continuity mistake: In the first scene where Lil examines Jersey's arms, the length of her hair is about 6" shorter than throughout the rest of the film. This is because that was one of the first scenes of the whole film they shot. (00:20:31)

Continuity mistake: When Violet goes to talk to Lil for the first time to ask for a job, Lil asks to see her arms. Violet holds out both arms, and Lil takes Violet's right arm in both hands, commenting on her burn scar (you see a close-up). In the very next scene, Lil is holding both of Violet's arms, one in each hand. (00:21:45)

Continuity mistake: When Violet goes to the club for the first time, her boss tears her shirt with her hands in the arms and the belly so that she becomes more sexy. How comes it is so straight later on, as if cut with scissors? (00:24:35)

Suggested correction: Violet had plenty of time to find some scissors and clean up her shirt to make it look that neat.

Continuity mistake: When Zoe, Tyra Banks, is 'crowd surfing', she is heading away from the bar. The next scene is where Violet hands Lil two beers, but in the scene directly after that, you can see all of the girls behind the bar, even Zoe (if you look way back to the right, next to Rachel). There is no way Zoe could have gotten back there that fast. (00:25:30)

Continuity mistake: When the guy at the bar orders 8 shots and Cammy (the blonde) tosses up 8 shot glasses in a fancy manner, as you can see she throws them up into 2 rows of 4. But then in the next shot they're all just in one long row of eight. It would be impossible for her to arrange them that quickly - there is only about a second between the two shots. (00:27:40)

Continuity mistake: Early on, a man in the bar asks Violet for whiskey and water. As Violet starts to get the drink, Rachel is looking at the ceiling. It cuts to her for a line and she is facing forward. (00:27:50)


Continuity mistake: On Violet's first night at "Coyote Ugly," the girls are on the bar dancing to "The Devil Went Down To Georgia." Lil and Violet are behind the bar. Violet says to Lil "I can't do that dance." The scene then goes back to the girls on the bar and Lil is the only one behind the bar dancing. In the very next scene, Lil gives Violet her coat and some money. The scene went from Violet and Lil standing together, to Lil being the only one behind the bar, back to Violet and Lil standing together in three seconds. (00:28:30)

Continuity mistake: In the scene just before Violet gets her tape back from Kevin they show Kevin dancing. His boss is moving with the music with a cup of coffee in his hand - they cut to a different angle and he is now eating something. (00:30:55)

Continuity mistake: When Violet is meeting Cami, before she meets her, she goes to get her tape back from Kevin, and she's wearing a light purple shirt, and a jean jacket. But when she meets Cami (same day), she's wearing a dark purple shirt and no jean jacket. (00:31:00 - 00:32:05)

Continuity mistake: When Violet is singing at Coyote Ugly for the first time, she slides down the pole and back up, swinging her arm down and in front of her (away from the camera). Cut to her face and her arm is suddenly shoulder height on the pole. (00:50:35)


Gloria: You know, me and you should have dinner sometime.
Bill Sanford: I'm locking the doors.

More quotes from Coyote Ugly

Trivia: Although Piper Perabo was able to sing for her character, it was decided that LeAnn Rimes would provide Violet's singing voice, albeit with a deliberate deviation from her natural vocal range. This means that during LeAnn's cameo in the movie, she is effectively duetting with herself.
