My Cousin Vinny

Watched the comedy My Cousin Vinny on DVD. Directed by Jonathan Lynn, the movie stars Joe Pesci and Marisa Tomei (in her Oscar winning role). The story starts off in Wazoo, a small Southern town of USA. Two NYC kids Billy and Stan who are driving through the town are mistakenly arrested for murder. Billy calls over his cousin Vinny to fight the case for him. Vinny who took 6 years to pass the bar exam and who has never actually faced the courtroom shows up in Wazoo with his girlfriend. What follows is some real hilarious courtroom and Southern small town humour as Vinny desperately tries to win the case and save Billy from the electric chair.

My Cousin Vinny is a real neat comedy. Joe Pesci and Marisa Tomei (hawt!) are an excellent pair of wits and acting. The expressions of the strict judge (Fred Gwynne) and the tussle between him and Vinny are simply superb. This movie is fun!
