      Two college kids, Bill (Ralph Macchio) and Stan (Mitchell Whitfield) are driving in their old green Buick from New York to California. They’ve got time on their hands, so the decide to see the South as well. In Alabama, they stop to get some gas and buy groceries.

      Bill, without any evil intentions, puts a can of tuna into his pocket and forgets to pay for it. They pay for the rest of the groceries


      and for gas and leave.

      A few miles down the road Bill discovers the can of tuna. It makes the two friends rather uneasy, as they have heard horror stories about how hard these small town Southern cops and sheriffs can be on a little thing like that.

      Their fears come true as they are stopped by the local deputy sheriff and taken to jail. Bill and Stan are convinced that they are in trouble because of that stolen can of tuna, and they are scared enough.

      Imagine their horror when they learn that they are charged with much more than shoplifting. It turns out that two guys matching their description have held up a convenience store and shot the clerk to death, so it is not a can of tuna but murder the two friends are to answer for.

      The terrified kids call home. They’ve got no money for ...

      a lawyer, but Bill happens to have one in the family - his cousin Vinny (Joe Pesci).

      Vinny agrees to come and defend them. He shows up with his rough manners, leather outfit, heavy Brooklyn accent, huge ego, and his fiancée Mona Lisa, stunning yet even more abrasive than himself (Marisa Tomei, who had received an Oscar for this role).

      All these are small problems. The big one is that Vinny has only been a

      lawyer for six weeks, and that’s after failing his bar exams for six years.

      His quirky manners and foul mouth immediately tick off the stern Southern judge (Fred Gwynne), and his lack of experience shows throughout, creating all kinds of trouble, but in the end, justice prevails. This is a funny comedy, however I would not call it appropriate for kids due to the language and some less than appropriate humor.

      I rate it 6 out of 10.
