A little bit late due to some technical issues but fear not, So You Think You Can Danica is back! Last month your intrepid hosts Danica & Devin asked people to vote on the movie we would watch for February’s podcast, and by a margin of one vote, the public decided: Coyote Ugly. And we watched it. And now this is episode happening.
Coyote Ugly is (ostensibly) the story of a young woman from New Jersey who moves to New York City to be a songwriter and ends up working at the sexiest, health-code-violatingest bar in the city. Oh, and also meets a guy named Kevin, who is…Kevin. There is dancing in it, but is it a dance movie? How many dance numbers are actually in the movie? And how many of them involve John Goodman? Join Devin & Danica as they get to the bottom of these tough questions. You’ll also hear about: Danica’s love of early 21st century aesthetic; the great Melanie Lynskey; Devin’s impression of legendary announcer Don Pardo; the trope of following women until they agree to date you; matchbooks as plot delivery systems; who this movie is actually for; just how much influence Jerry Bruckheimer had on this movie; how many times EMF’s “Unbelievable” is played; the time Devin accidentally called producer Don Simpson “Joel Silver;” some truly bizarre celebrity cameos; how amazing Maria Bello is; relying on romance to drive the plot when the leads have chemistry; how many tricks Kevin Smith would have if he were a pony; proof that men have hips; Devin’s mini-review of Garth Ennis’ run on The Punisher; the sound of two hands shaking; Violet’s matching six-piece lavender outfit; John Goodman as a pathetically sloven man-baby; Danica’s mini history of Canadian pop band Joydrop; American songwriting legend Diane Warren; Danica teaching Devin about late 90s fashion; and bars with excellent pun names.
Plus: can your hosts finish the podcast when they stopped taking notes two thirds of the way through? Find out on this very special episode of So You Think You Can Danica.
