I had not seen this movie for years and years, but watched it again today. Joe Pesci is great, but I had forgotten just how good Fred Gwynne and Marisa Tomei also are in this movie.

One of my favorite silly movies.
The "deer lips" scene was my favorite.

You can't post a thread about this movie without the defining scene.




"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

We were going to do the same but with, "Fictional" sponsors; Bob's Country Bunker, Bushwood Country Club, Chico's Bailbonds, Ray's Music Exchange, Omar's Garage. Now I can add the law firm of Vincent Gambini to the list!

One of the few movies I can watch over and over again and not just because I fell in love with Marisa Tomei the first time I saw it.

Absolutley. I particularly liked when Pesci declares Tomei a hostile witness.

Gambini: Your Honor, may I have permission to treat Ms. Vito as a hostile witness?

Vito: You think I'm hostile now, wait 'til you see me tonight.

Judge Haller: Do you two know each other?

Gambini: Yeah, she's my fiancée.

Judge Haller: Well, that would certainly explain the hostility. Big Grin

Mona Lisa Vito -Hmmmm, breakfast?
Vinny - Ya think? Good choice. We'll take two.

It's the little scenes in this movie that tickle me.

I could use a good ass-kickin', I'll be very honest with you... nah, I think I'll just go with the two hundred...

One of my favorite movies ever. It always reminds me of the culture shock I went through upon leaving NYC and heading to my first duty station in Alabama.

It is an excellent movie. It is much more realistic than most movies that include courtroom scenes, so it doesn't make lawyers cringe.

I have always wanted to say in court: "I got no more use for dis guy" when done crossing a witness.

And Tomei is as appealing as they get.

A while back, I read that attorneys considered My Cousin Vinny to be the most realistic film in regards to the inside of a courtroom, particularly the interaction between Pesci and Gwynne.

I never tire of this movie. Well written, this film hits all of the marks. Pesci and Tomei had great chemistry. Excellent support cast.
