This is a comedy classic! If you watch this and don't laugh through almost all of it, then some doctor must have surgically removed your funny bone, or your whole family recently died in a horrific car crash (hope not). That's the only way you won't think it's funny. If you haven't seen this movie yet, please do yourself a favor, and at least watch it until the public defender representing one of the accused presents his case for the first time. If you haven't laughed after that scene, then I feel sorry for you because you are not only depressed, but maybe suicidal (again, I hope not), Call 9-1-1 immediately.

This movie was a favorite in my household growing up. It is absolutely brilliant and Pesci and Tomei give their utmost best performances. There are way too many scenes of absolute hilarity that it is impossible to watch this movie too many times. Tomei steals the show in this "adventure/court" comedy. They perfectly portray two northerners lost in the deep south. There are just too many scenes to quote out of this movie. An absolute classic.

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...
