My Cousin Vinny

I had been recommended this movie from a few quarters, so after beginning with kids on a road trip I was surprised to discover that it transitioned into a courtroom comedy/drama. To be honest I wasn’t sure what to make of it (other than Marisa Tomei being amazing). Well, I guess it really demonstrates the cultural divide within America, how ridiculously arbitrary the court system is (particularly the judge’s powers and the rules of court), and that Joe Pesci has had roles outside of Home Alone. I did like that the movie ended with cultural reconciliation.
