In this must-see comedy hit, two carefree pals traveling through Alabama are mistakenly arrested and charged with murder. Fortunately, one of them has a lawyer friend in the family -Vincent Gambini (Joe Pesci), a former auto mechanic from Brooklyn who has never been in court - or in Alabama. When cousin Vinny arrives with his leather-clad girlfriend to handle his first case, it's a real shock - for him and the Deep South!
Watch this once every year

Very seldom watch films twice, but actually got this now in Blu Ray for about two pounds.
Everyone just fits so well, as does the story, the pace, and the dialogue. Herman Munster as the judge just caps it off. One of my top ten films in my collection, and have about 1300 at last count.
Marisa was then wasted in so many films. She could have been one of the biggest.............
A must watch...........

Joe Pesci showing a softer side!
- My Cousin Vinny review by CP Customer
This is a really funny movie - Joe Pesci who we better know for his gangster and dark sinister roles in Casino and Good fellas shows a more human side with his funny bronx accent and clueless attitude in the legal world!
A clueless lawyer taking on his first major case defending his cousin wrongly accused of murder - a really heart warming but funny movie!!!!
This is a great film I love it!!!!

Great court action!

Great fun- a good lively cast, Pesci warming up a little for future nastier characters. The court denouement was a lovely moment.
