They decide to drive through the South. Once they arrive in Alabama, they stop at a local convenience store to pick up a few snacks. But, no sooner than they leave the store, they are arrested. They had thought that they were arrested for shoplifting, but they were arrested for murder and robbery. Worse, they are facing execution for this crime. Bill and Stan do not have enough money for a lawyer, so the good news is that Bill has a lawyer in his family, his cousin, Vincent Laguardia Gambini. The bad news is that Vinny is an inexperienced lawyer who has not been at a trial. So, Vinny has to defend his clients and battle an uncompromising judge, some tough locals, and even his fiancée, Mona Lisa Vito, who just does not know when to shut up, to prove his clients’ innocence. But he will soon realize that he is going to need help.
Plot: Two carefree pals traveling through Alabama are mistakenly arrested, and charged with murder. Fortunately, one of them has a cousin who’s a lawyer – Vincent Gambini, a former auto mechanic from Brooklyn who just passed his bar exam after his sixth try. When he arrives with his leather-clad girlfriend, to try his first case, it’s a real shock – for him and the Deep South!

My Cousin Vinny is one of the most brilliant comedies ever produced. There is simply so much to love about this movie.
First, this is not simply a slapstick comedy. Sure, there is some of that, including a few hilarious moments in the Alabama mud. But the dialogue in this film is terrifically funny. The writers were able to turn a courtroom script into an incredibly funny exchange of dialogue between lawyers, judges and witnesses. And the whole idea of an out-of-work hairdresser knowing about Positraction is simply brilliant.
This dialogue is brilliant because of excellent performances by both Marisa Tomei and Joe Pesci. These two sell this whole load of nonsense so beautifully it should be mandatory viewing for first-year drama students. These two actors show how talented people can read practically anything and make it not only funny but wholly believable.
Even all the side characters, from the judge to the D.A. to the defendants to the jury and witnesses are brilliantly played. Some of the exchanges between a local Alabama judge and a NYC poser lawyer would be completely ridiculous in anyone else’s hands, but these people make it so real and so funny it’s truly a thing of beauty.
This is one of those rare films that I can watch over and over again for hours and not tire of it.

Trial And Errors
If this film was rated nine out of ten on its original release it’s STILL an eight minimum all these years later, it’s just a case of EVERYTHING, story, setting, and performances coming together and really complementing each other. It could of course be argued that to a certain extent it was manipulative; for one thing it’s set in Alabama and seasoned film buffs know that in certain situations the Deep South sends itself up without really trying. Next you have the culture shock, sophisticated (by definition) Noo Yawkers, yet naïve with it when adrift in the boonies. Throw in an uncouth lawyer who hasn’t actually tried a murder case and pit him against a courtly judge of the old school and what’s not to like. Joe Pesci and Marisa Tomei are beyond praise and it’s criminal that no one ever exploited their outstanding talents subsequently. Fred Gywnne would have walked away with the movie if he hadn’t come up against Tomei and Pesci. Brilliant.
