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 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)
Continuity mistake: When Gloria is talking to Violet just after they have arrived in New York, when they are standing' outside the car, Violets hair is curly and a lot of it is flowing over the front of her shoulders. Whenever there is a shot from the back, her hair is not so curly and pushed behind her shoulders. It continues to do this throughout the scene.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Violet first sings at Coyote Ugly, she in one shot, points at the crowd. Next shot, she does this again, in less than a second. Between shots she doesn't lift her hand or arm from its position, but simply points, then points again. (00:50:45)
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Violet and Kevin are getting intimate, Violet starts taking Kevins jacket off. The jacket is only half way down but in the next shot his jacket is already off and she starts taking his shirt off.
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: When Violet (Jersey) is singing at the dome palace the microphone is in her left hand first, then the camera changes angles and it's in her right and very quickly changes to her left again. (01:30:10)
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: 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: In the scene with the cardboard cutouts, one of them (I think it is Faith Hill) gets knocked over. Later, when Violet is playing the keyboard, it is standing up again. (00:56:50)
Violet: Look, are you really the owner? 'Cause I've had a rough couple of days and so the last thing I need is some waitress on a power trip wastin' my time.
Lil: You start Friday night.
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.Jedd Jong
