My Cousin Vinny

PhotobucketPhotobucketPitch perfect courtroom comedy about a lawyer defending his cousins of murder in a backwoods Alabama town. Fish out of water comedy features stellar performances by Pesci, Tomei and Gwynne. Likeable, funny and well written.

  1. People have probably forgotten or just don’t know but Marisa Tomei won Best Supporting Actress for her role in My Cousin Vinny. On a sad note, this was the final film for Fred Gwynn before his death.

    • I haven’t forgotten. Marisa Tomei’s win was the stuff of legend. For years people said that Oscar presenter Jack Palance read the wrong name by mistake. Of course it wasn’t true, but the rumor spread like wildfire.

      She was wonderful in the role. She deserved that win.
