Wick's Review

Created May 05, 2019 06:37PM PST • Edited Dec 23, 2019 02:12AM PST

  1. Quality
  2. Good 3.0

    My Cousin Vinny is best thought of today as Marisa Tomei’s breakthrough. Perfectly paired with a then peaking Joe Pesci, the 30-something Tomei won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for a comedy. Damn.

    The movie itself is a genial send-up of stereotypes, Italian-American mostly. Delivered with good cheer and consummate performances by Tomei and Pesci, it makes for a very enjoyable time-killer.

  3. Great 4.0

    Marisa Tomei couldn’t be more fresh and charming as a wise-cracking New Yorker not always thrilled with her fiancĂ©’s moves. Speaking of him, Joe Pesci delivered one of his patented Italian-American roles.

    • Ralph Macchio is genial but forgettable as a college kid in trouble.
    • Same with Mitchell Whitfield as his buddy.
    • Fred Gwynne jumped offscreen as a distinguished judge. Those of us of a certain age have indelible memories of Gwynne as Herman Munster.
    • Lane Smith & Bruce McGill are reliable character actors as a DA and sheriff respectively.
  4. Male Stars Great 4.0
  5. Female Stars Really Great 4.5
  6. Female Costars Good 3.0
  7. Male Costars Very Good 3.5
  8. Good 3.0

    It’s largely a comedy of mistaken understandings, sometimes sexual, sometimes legal, most of the time cultural. It’s also famous for a somewhat accurate depiction of trial procedure.

  9. Direction OK 2.5
  10. Play Great 4.0

    Lottsa legendary lines

  11. Music Good 3.0
  12. Visuals OK 2.5
  13. Content
  14. Risqué 1.9

    The movie couldn’t be made today, trading in stereotypes as it does.

  15. Sex Titillating 1.6
  16. Violence Fierce 1.8
  17. Rudeness Salty 2.4
  18. Glib 1.6
  19. Circumstantial Surreal 2.4
  20. Biological Glib 1.5
  21. Physical Natural 1.0
