Entertaining, perhaps even more than once, but not much more than that and thats just fine.

North vs South as a green New Yawk lawyer who finally passed the bar goes down south to defend a family member and his friend from a murder charge with some pretty stiff evidance. Gets good mileage out of the material without being insulting to either side but takes a little too long in it's set up and could have gotten more jokes into the running time. Fred Gwenne had his final role and one of his best as the stern judge.

My Cousin Vinny
When  you stop to think about it , most of the courtroom movies that have been made over the years are dramas.  "To Kill A Mockingbird",  "Judgement At Nuremburg", "Kramer vs. Kramer" and "Inherit The Wind" are some of the movies that come to mind.  1992's hilarious "My Cousin Vinny" turns that formula upside down.  Here is one of the funniest movies in recent memory.  Billy Gambini (played by Ralph …

This movie starts out looking like other tales of New Yorkers traveling through the South, being falsely charged with murder and then having a sham trial.

At first, Pesci comes …

This is one excellent light hearted comedy. Although the storyline gets a little bit far fetched, who really notices with all the funny lines and sight gags. Fred Gwynne is so cool as the hometown judge. Joe Pesci and Marissa Tomei add spunk and spice to the sleepy muddy town of Alabama where the trial is set. The conflict between the Old South and Italian Brooklyn comes to a funny peak when Pesci refers to the boys on trial as the two Yutes! Gwynne's reaction is just priceless. Anyway, for a barrell …

Pros: hilarious, Tomei and Pesci     Cons: a little long, extraneous plot twist     Just looking at Marisa Tomei and Joe Pesci in "My Cousin Vinny" makes me laugh. And when they speak, I laugh harder. This movie is definitely one of the funniest films produced in the past ten years.      Two boys on a road trip in Alabama are pulled over after buying groceries at a roadside store. The paranoid NYU graduates speculate that people …
