MY COUSIN VINNY
June 26, 2019  | By David Bianculli

AMC, 8:00 p.m. ET

 
This 1992 comedy is such a funny, enjoyable legal comedy, it’s easy to overlook how dependent it is on the broad comic talents of its two stars, Marisa Tomei (who won an Oscar for her portrayal) and Joe Pesci (who perhaps should have). He plays the title character, a newly minted New York lawyer defending his cousin, who is accused of murder in rural Alabama. Oh, and give credit, too, to Fred Gwynne, who plays the judge who has a problem with Vinny’s wardrobe, attitude, and accent. “Yutes?”
