Film Review

My Cousin Vinny
Directed by Jonathan Lynn
20th Century Fox Home Entertainment 03/92 DVD/VHS Feature Film
R - language

My Cousin Vinny stars Joe Pesci as Vinny Gambini, an inexperienced lawyer from Brooklyn who must defend his nephew and his nephew's best friend when they are charged with murdering a convenience store operator in a small Alabama town. The judge (Fred Gwynne) is a stickler for procedural details. The key to Vinny's success as a lawyer is in the head and the heart of his outspoken fiancee. Marisa Tomei steals the film with her surprise-a-minute performance as an unemployed hairdresser who also is a specialist in auto mechanics. My Cousin Vinny is a crowd-pleasing comedy. Director Jonathan Lynn makes the most out of the cultural differences between all the characters.
