5.0 out of 5 stars "What exactly is a yout?", 1 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: My Cousin Vinny [1992] [DVD] (DVD)
While travelling through rural Arizona, two innocent undergraduates find themselves implicated in a murder, and being penniless New Yorkers, are forced to turn to their optimistic but hopeless cousin to defend them. Is Arizona ready for Vincent Gambini?

Is this the funniest movie of the 1990s? Maybe. Joe Pesci, Marisa Tomei, Fred Gwynne and Austin Pendleton give performances that would stand out in any movie. Side by side, they are amazing.

If William Shakespeare was able to watch this movie, he would recognise all the essential characteristics of ancient comedy. The characters are of low status, and have exaggerated personalities, and cannot recognise their own ridiculousness. The story structure is based on a reversal of fortune, with each character making an unlikely journey from an unhappy state to a happy state. The film observes the three unities, being set in one location, on one day, and with a single, unified story.

Well, okay, its not set on one day, but two out of three isn't bad.

Don't worry if you don't like Shakespeare - you will still find this film hilarious. I challenge anyone to dislike it.
