Customer Review

on 23 September 2010
The synposis of the story is well covered so I won't repeat. This is a great film,with sharp,witty dialogue,an interesting story and characters...and every actor in it is great.Marisa Tomei won an Oscar for her portrayal of a NJ Italo-American beauty with brains and eternal fiance to Joe Pesci who won't set the wedding date.You may recognise the presiding Southern judge from the Munsters,an old TV show,as well as the original Karate Kid.The story,the court scenes,the local characters in a small town in the South are perfect.Underneath their Southern manners and civility/politeness these are capable and educated people.For once they are not made out to be buffoons by Hollywood snobs.
And until Joe Pesci understands the Southern mentality,he flounders in his legal work as the defender of his cousin accused of robbery and murder.
The case turns on the way to cook grits(a Southern polenta made with white corn as opposed to yellow corn),and it is Joe's use of this that proves the innocence of his cousin.
