Pro Say Movie Club - My Cousin Vinny
Listen now
Description
On this week’s episode of the Pro Say Movie Club, we comb our hair, put on our suits made out of some kind of cloth, and journey to the south with Joe Pesci and Marisa Tomei in the venerable 1992 legal comedy “My Cousin Vinny.” Pesci plays Vincent Gambini, a sharp but inexperienced New York attorney who’s way out of his element defending two “yutes” accused of murdering a store clerk in a small Alabama town. With the help of girlfriend Mona Lisa Vito’s automotive prowess, and some magic grits, Gambini slowly learns to navigate the courtroom and ends up giving a masterclass in cross-examination. We’ll break down all the scenes and discuss why it’s been heralded as one of cinema’s most accurate trial depictions.
