    I saw My Cousin Vinny when it first came out and LOVED it. The plot and Joe Pesci were hilarious. Marisa Tomei was perfect as she stole the trial with her knowledge of tires.

    This truly is one of the greatest movies ever. Its wonderfully witty with amazing performances. One such performance is that by Marisa Tomei. One could say her Best Supprting Actress Oscar win was one of the biggest upsets in Oscar history, anyone who's seen the movie could argue that. Her performance is nothing short of pheomonial holding her own against A Lister Joe Pecsi. And all the contrasting throughout the movie is hilarious, one prime example is tiny Joe Pesci going toe to toe with giant Fred Gywnne. Just rent this movie and you'll see why its such a gem,
