My Cousin Vinny

This is a fairly unexpected classic. Ralph Macchio plays a kid wrongfully accused of murder. Unable to afford a decent attorney, he turns to his loyal cousin, Vinny (Joe Pesci) for help. Vinny has just recently passed the bar, and is happy to help out a family member in need. But he has several big bumps to overcome along the way to the truth. Marisa Tomei's role as Mona Lisa Vito is particularly memorable. She even won an Oscar for it!
