I Love Movies: My Cousin Vinny
I heard about this films for years, but never saw it ’till now. Marisa Tomei won the Oscar for the supporting role, but the star of the film is no doubt Joe Pesci.
Yes, this movie is full of cliches familiar jokes… but Joe Pesci and Marisa Tomei makes all those cliches look authentic, which makes this movie so fun. Pure fun. I’m reading quotes from the film, and it makes me laugh out loud…
Vinny Gambini: Uh… everything that guy just said is bullshit… Thank you.
D.A. Jim Trotter: Objection. Counsel’s entire opening statement is argumentative.
Judge Chamberlain Haller: Sustained. Counselor’s entire opening statement… with the exception of “thank you”… will be stricken from the record.
