      My Cousin Vinny, directed by Jonathan Lynn is rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America for language. The original release date was March 13, 1992 for United States audience. This movie falls in the genre of Comedy/Crime and stars Joe Pesci as Vincent Gambini aka Vinny, Ralph Macchio as William Gambini aka Billy, Marisa Tomei as Mona Lisa Vito, Mitchell Whitfield as Stan Rothenstein, Fred Gwynne as Judge Chamberlain Haller, Lane Smith as District Attorney Jim Trotter III, Austin Pendleton

      as John Gibbons and Bruce McGill as Sheriff Dean Farley.

      Billy and Stan are arrested and charged for the murder of a store manager while they were on vacation. Unknowingly admitting to the charge, Billy calls his family to get him a lawyer to defend his case. Enters Vinny and fiance Mona…Vinny gets busy ticking off the Judge and ends up in jail after being charged with comtempt of court.

      While searching around to find evidence for his case and also getting himself prepared ...

      • for his very first trial, Vinny is kinda like a fish out of water, but he tries not tolet it show too much. He manages to convince the judge, jury, procecution and court members that he as actually a well seasoned trial lawyer.

        Putting his case together was no walk in the park either, There were alot of things he had to sift through to get the relevant material that he needed to acquit his cousin Billy and friend of the murder charge

        that was laid on them.

        With alot of assistance from Mona, he manages to pull off a scheme unlike any other and get the two youths acquitted from their near death sentencing. After which, he planned to make a hasty retreat and leave town as soon as possible before the judge found out that he was not who he claimed to be.

        Instant classic by any standards, a wonderful and extremely funny film with a magnificent cast. Definitely one for the collection. Well done!
