About the Movie

Two carefree pals (Ralph Macchio and Mitchell Whitfield) traveling through Alabama are mistakenly arrested, and charged with murder. Fortunately, one of them has a cousin who's a lawyer - Vincent Gambini (Joe Pesci), a former auto mechanic from Brooklyn who just passed his bar exam after his sixth try. Vinny's never been in court - or in Alabama - and when he arrives with his leather-clad girlfriend (Marisa Tomei in her Oscar® winning Supporting Actress performance), to try his first case, it's a real shock - for him and the Deep South!

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Easily the most inventive and enjoyable American film farce in a long time, even during those extended patches when it seems to be marking time or when it continues with a running gag that can't stay the distance. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Apr 30, 2014

Rotten: My Cousin Vinny is the definition of obvious, and it's way too long (do films like this really need an hour's worth of setup?). But Pesci and Tomei make a first-rate team. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Apr 30, 2014

Fresh: You might not remember much about My Cousin Vinny an hour later, but the cast makes the jokes (even the bad ones) go down easy. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Apr 30, 2014

Fresh: Tomei, sashaying through the proceedings as kind of a sexy hood ornament, creates a buoyant chemistry with her combative b.f. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

the beautiful Marisa Tomei

besides being a great movie, seeing Marisa is worth the watch, a true American Beauty. she did win an oscar for this performance and hails from the almighty Brooklyn, NY!...these new actresses out now can go in the toilet or trash, fuggeddaboutit!

Such a funny movie

Possibly the funniest movie ever. It has humor that can be enjoyed by anyone. Never a dull moment, all excitement and hysterical laughing. Worth $1,000,000

Recommended for anyone (comfortable with language use)

It's not G rated. Obviously.
But My Cousin Vinny has been a favorite of mine for years! It's laugh out loud funny, the lines from the movie seem to stick to your head (I laugh thinking about them!), and it's storyline and characters are believable (maybe just a little over the top), and somewhat relatable. But if you are uncomfortable with the "F" word, watch it on cable so it's edited. This movie is well-worth seeing!
