If you have never seen My Cousin Vinny, you may be missing out on a real classic.
It has a huge fan base and fans usually love to quote the movie and show memes of their favorite scenes.
It has a pretty large following so when it didn’t make it on 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die by Steven Schneider, fans were naturally shocked.
Many of them took to Twitter to share their surprise and some of their favorite parts of the movie.
They pointed out the great acting, the best scenes, and many of them shared how often they watch it or just how much they love it.
Of course, not everyone has seen the film or enjoys it as much as the true fans. If you aren’t familiar with the film, Rotten Tomatoes describes the plot:
“New York lawyer Vinny has never won a case. When his teenage cousin Bill and his friend Stan are accused of murder in a backwater Alabama town, it’s up to the nervous Vinny to save him from jail, even though he’s only ever tried personal injury cases before, and none of them successfully.”
It stars some pretty big actors as well. Most notable, Joe Pesci, Marisa Tomei, Ralph Macchio, Mitchell Whitfield, Fred Gwynne, and Lane Smith.
The film also won many awards. Marisa Tomei won best supporting actress at the Academy Awards and was nominated again for the award in the 20/20 Awards.
She also won Most Promising Actress at the Chicago Film Critics Association Awards and Best Breakthrough actress at the MTV Movie Awards. Joe Pesci won Funniest Actor in a Motion Picture at the American Comedy Awards.
It’s easy to see why fans were so surprised when this film didn’t make the list.
Hard to believe MY COUSIN VINNY (1992) isn’t on the list of 1001 movies to see before you die. its one of MY favorites though, so it was great to see it again tonight @ParamountAustin as part of their Summer Classic Film Series. pic.twitter.com/egtYFhHAhg

Don’t know why it’s trending but My Cousin Vinny is one of my favorite movies! See it if you haven’t. “Perhaps the laws of physics cease to exist on your stove. Were these magic grits?”

“My Cousin Vinny” is a reminder that you can’t trust any kind of legal proceedings that do not include cross-examination. The reason it’s trending now is the pathetic kangaroo court, presented to the public as the jan6 commission.

I could watch My Cousin Vinny every week. Never gets old. Classic.

Hmmm. "My Cousin Vinny" is trending.
For me, it is one of those movies, if I run across it, that I don't turn it off. Like: Shawshank, Godfather…
Not discounting Fred Gwynne or Joe Pesci; however, without Marisa Tomei's work in MCV – I don't think it is the same movie.

March 1992, My Cousin Vinny came out in theatres. 30 years later, it's still an entertaining film. My favorite scene was the breakfast scene. Especially when Vincent Gambini complained the scoop on lard on the stove. 1992, lard evil. Today, lard good. https://t.co/2Gpr8IYmtn
