My Cousin Vinny

Jonathan Lynn

A courtroom drama about two New Yorkers accused of murder and their defence by another New Yorker and a rookie lawyer make for a comedy. Joe Pesci defending the accused without knowing Southern American sensibilities and courtroom procedures is magnificent with Marisa Tomei who won the Academy award for this movie. Fred Gwynne as the judge and Lane Smith as the government prosecutor also put in great performances.
