My Cousin Vinny Movie Review


Marisa Tomei won one of the most controversial Oscars ever for her brash performance as Joe Pesci's dumbass lawyer girlfriend in this film, and -- her high, loud voice aside -- she's the least memorable part of the film. Rather, a genuinely funny script with dialogue perfectly delivered by Pesci ("What is a grit!?") gets tons of laughs. After all, he's a gambino wannabe lawyer trapped in a Southern small town. Michael J. Fox in the South doesn't get laughs. Pesci does. Very funny fish-out-of-water flick and, Oscar notwithstanding, generally underrated.
