My Old Addiction

My Cousin Vinny


(out of 5)

One of the funniest and most memorable comedies in recent years, with two college roommates (, ) taking off for college in their vintage convertible. When a misunderstanding at a southern roadside convenience store sees them accused of murder, Macchio calls upon his only hope for survival to bail him and his friend out: his newly-licensed, New Yawk-accented, savvy lawyer cousin (), who is about to take the southern judiciary system by storm. Pesci is fantastic, though with Dale Laudner’s brilliant script it would be hard not to do so well.  The scene-stealing work done by the magnificent  as his equally tough-talking girlfriend puts the perfect touch on what is already a riot from start to finish.
