What a cast, what a movie! Joe Pesci, Marisa Tomei, Ralph Macchio, Fred Gwynne, Bruce McGill and more make up the stellar cast of characters.
In case you forgot, The movie is about two kids from New York driving through a small Alabama town. They’re fingered for a murder they didn’t commit.
Enter cousin Vinny played by Joe Pesci. He plays Vincent Gambini, a lawyer who took a few tries before he passed the bar exam. He is called in to defend the kids. Vinny and his fiance’, Marisa Tomei head to the south to defend the kids.
The movie is a non-stop, catch-your-breath laugh a minute. New Yorker’s as much as Chicagoans can’t get more ‘fish out of water’ in the south than this.
A critical and financial success, Pesci, Gwynne, and Tomei all received praise for their performances, and Tomei won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.
The movie cost 11 million dollars to make and did almost 65 million dollars at the box office.
