My Cousin Vinny
In MY COUSIN VINNY, lawyer Vincent Gambini fights heroically to save two clients who have everything against them — including the facts that Vinny isn’t from the area, has never been in a courtroom, and only passed the bar exam six weeks ago.
Joe Pesci and Marisa Tomei were absolutely fantastic in this movie that I honestly don’t think would be able to be made today, if only because there’s so many damn cameras everywhere recording everything. Additionally, even backwoods Alabama would have a better legal system than what’s presented here, at least I’m assuming they would.
Regardless, I missed seeing this back in ’92, but I’m happy my wife suggested it to me, it was good to see Pesci in a wholesome role instead of as an angry / funny mobster.
