The minor miracle of My Cousin Vinny is that--though the picture never scores any guffaws, the villains remain off-screen, and the conclusion is never in doubt--the movie's full two-hour running time passes so breezily. [Blu-ray]

A rare comedy that never quite wears out its welcome.

Tomei, sashaying through the proceedings as kind of a sexy hood ornament, creates a buoyant chemistry with her combative b.f.

Smart-talking comedy with Joe Pesci in fine form.

While it's easy to imagine an infinite number of bad courtroom comedies based on this scenario, this movie turns out to be wonderful -- broad and low character comedy that's solidly imagined and beautifully played.

Though overrated, this comedy shows why Joe Pesci was once an important film addition

It's a small, surprisingly gentle affair, prone to fits and starts, but fun.

Too dependent on convenient stereotypes and fish-out-of-water cliches, though the late Fred Gwynne is a welcome presence.

Big dumb comedy that somehow works.

Excellent performances by Pesci & Tomei. Essentially a court room dramedy "My Cousin Vinny" makes some good points about pointing fingers. But mostly it'll make you laugh

Easily the most inventive and enjoyable American film farce in a long time, even during those extended patches when it seems to be marking time or when it continues with a running gag that can't stay the distance.

You might not remember much about My Cousin Vinny an hour later, but the cast makes the jokes (even the bad ones) go down easy.

It's the kind of movie home video was invented for: Not worth the trip to the theater, but slam it into the VCR and you get your rental's worth.

Joe Pesci is a total screen pleasure. He grabs whatever comes his way -- from GoodFellas to Home Alone
