When Bill Gambini (Ralph Macchio) and his friend are mistakenly charged with murder while traveling through Alabama, it’s up to his lawyer cousin Vinny (Joe Pesci) to try to help overturn the conviction. But when Vinny arrives with his leather-clad, gum-chewing New York girlfriend (Marisa Tomei in a Best Supporting Actress OSCAR®-winning performance), it becomes clear that this is his first case.

Common Sense Says
Courtroom comedy will appeal to teens. Some strong language.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the language is crude throughout. Because the film's humor and story are appealing to older tweens and teens, it's regrettable that the filmmakers illustrate the "fish out of water" nature of the leading characters with so much swearing and rough language.
