My Cousin Vinny review

Billy Gambini (Ralph Macchio) and Stan Rothenstein (Mitchell Whitfield) were charged for murder of a clerk and as an accessory. Vinny Gambini (Joe Pesci) together with Mona Lisa Vito (Marisa Tomei) try to help. Chamberlain Haller (Fred Gwynne) becomes curious about Vinny's legal expertise. It was impossible for the swift turnaround of Vinny's legal expertise and attitude during the trial. Another baffling thing was allowing the profanities used in court in the early stages of the proceedings, speed of tracing the tire tracks and judge being easily fooled. On a positive note, Tomei and Pesci had exceptional onscreen chemistry which makes this laughable. The script was witty and funny. Best lines: Vinny - "All I ask is for that one chance. I think you should give it to me." and Lisa ...

My Cousin Vinny (1992)

Two college boys Bill Gambini (Ralph Macchio) and Stan (Fred Gwynne) from New York City get falsely arrested for armed robbery and murder after they happened to be an Alabama store just prior to the store clerk being shot. Upon realizing they can't afford a good lawyer, Bill enlists the services of his cousin Vinny (Joe Pesci) who has just passed the Bar. Pesci plays the fish-out-of-water role to perfection here as Vincent Gambini, who is new at law but makes up for his lack of book knowledge with an amazing array of street smarts, guts, guile, confidence. He's just so likable that you can't help loving the guy. In addition to Pesci's brilliant performance, we are treated to some great supporting work by Best Supporting Actress Marisa Tomei (as Vinny's feisty, smart girlfriend Mona Lisa V...

Gotta take care of those Utes!!

"My Cousin Vinny" isn't the great court room drama because it's filled with things that are simply against the rules of court, but since the film is told in such tongue-and-check fashion, it simply adds to the great on-screen chemistry of the actors involved and themes of the film. People may argue that's its contrived, ridiculous, and all that garbage, but this film isn't to be taken seriously. It's a comedy. It's a feel-good-story of believing in someone, and it is incredibly effective. "My Cousin Vinny" delivers a ton of laughs, some great acting from Pesci, Tomei, and Fred Gwynne. Joe Pesci and Marisa Tomei have a ton of fun with this role and really do a great job acting off one another. We become so invested in this story and so invested with their determination that we're sucked in...

pretty funny, real good when case goes to trial

"Bill Gambini" (Ralph Machio) and "Stan Rothenstein" (Mitchell Whitfield) are traveling through Alabama and make a stop at a local shop that is oddly named "Sack-o-Suds" to purchase food for their trip. Minutes after getting back on the road, they are pulled over and arrested.

While being questioned for what he thinks is shoplifting, due to an unpaid can of tuna from that shop, "Bill" finds out that he is being booked for murder of the store clerk, and that, based on his misinformed statement, "Stan" is being booked as an accessory to murder.

"Bill" then uses his one phone call back home, and finds out that he has a lawyer in the family -- his cousin "Vinny Gambini" (Joe Pesci). A day or so later, "Vinny", along with his girlfriend "Mona Lisa Vito" (Marisa Tomei, who won the Oscar...

The Ultimate Comedy!

My Cousin Vinny really is everything that a comedy should be! The cast are great and all play their characters with fantastic ease.
Set in Alabama, it tells of Vinny (Joe Pesci), a "lawyer" of sorts who is faced with defending his cousin Bil (Former Karate Kid, Ralph Maccio)l and his friend Stan (Mitchell Whitfield) on murder charges when they are arrested after a store clerk is shot during a robbery. With the help of his fiance, Mona Lisa (Marisa Tomei, who subsequently won an Oscar for the role) Vinny manages to grasp the legal system and court etiquette in time to give a winning performance in front of a doubting judge. The hilarity comes from the fact that Vinny and Mona Lisa are very definitely from New York with strong accents that contrast those of the rest of the court, and also...
