My Cousin Vinny (1992)
A typical early 1990s film with all the drawbacks and advantages that implies. Joe Pesci and Fred Gwynne enjoy unconventional rivalry as an unkempt defence attorney and a no-nonsense judge respectively, who meet up in court where the former must defend his cousin (Macchio) who is on trial for a murder he didn't commit. The tone of the film is enjoyable and carefree, never worrying about utilizing stereotypes and archetypes to construct more or less insipid comedic situations - usually about the differences between the south (Alabama) and the perceivably more urban north-east (New York). Pesci and Tomei have some surprisingly erotic scenes together, and the courtroom scenes are amusing if highly predictable. Tomei surprisingly won an Academy Award for her performance.
