1992 Certificate: 15


Joe Pesci plays the inexperienced Brooklyn lawyer who travels to a small backwater town in Alabama to defend his cousin (Ralph Macchio) on a murder charge. Motor-mouthed comedy, best known for Marisa Tomei's Oscar-winning turn as Vinny's feisty fiancee and Macchio's re-emergence after the Karate Kid years. Fred 'Herman Munster' Gwynne is great value as the presiding judge struggling to understand Vinny's Noo Yawk accent.
