My Cousin Vinny

1992

Jonathan Lynn
Director

Two young students are wrongly accused of murder in Beechum County, Alabama. One of them reluctantly enlists the help of their inexperienced attorney cousin Vinny (Pesci) to help defend them in the trial. With a scene-stealing performance by Gwynne as the Judge, this is a wonderful comedy with a great script.
It has long been rumoured that Marisa Tomei won her Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress by mistake. The story goes that presenter Jack Palance read the first name on the card instead of the actual winner (which could have been Tomei but unlikely) and therefore she won the award due to his confusion. I guess we shall never know now!
