PG-13 | | Comedy, Drama, Music
Aspiring songwriter Violet Sanford, after getting a job at a women-run NYC bar that teases its male patrons, comes out of her shell.
Izabella Miko (Cammy) originally auditioned for the role of Violet.
Alright, you win. I'll do it.
Kevin: I love winning.
Lil lists the drinks the bar serves as "Jim, Jack, Johnny Red, Johnny Black, and Jose; all my favorite men. You can have it any way you like it, as long as it's in a shot glass." However, when Violet first shows up to ask for a job she is asked to carry a case down the stairs she carries a case of Crown Royal.
Lil is being clever in listing alcohol with men's names in them. Only the ones with men's names. Crown Royal isn't a man's name, but it's a bar and it doesn't mean she doesn't serve other types of alcohol. It's also a very busy night and it's succinct. A few minutes later, a customer orders 8 shots (4 Canadian, 4 south of the border). None of those men are Canadian, so if he ordered it, she must carry it (Crown Royal is Canadian). Actually, no self-respecting of any caliber would limit it's libations to only 5 name-brand liquors, let alone only 2 bourbons, 2 scotches and a tequila.
Unrated extended cut restores scenes (ca. 6 minutes) that were deemed "unsuitable" for the American market and threatened the desired PG-13 rating. Added back was additional/extended footage in virtually every dance scene, a shopping scene with Cammie and Violet and a sex scene with Violet and Kevin.
