So this funny courtroom comedy is giving us Joe Peshi and Marisa Tomei. Here is the basic 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.
Truth be told I’ve never watched this on dvd or anything like that. I’ve only seen it on network television, so having the rating be R wasn’t an issue.
The soundtrack is a combination of different artist, and the score is by Randy Edelman. I enjoyed the score, but the soundtrack sometimes can be forgettable with a few memorable songs.
You can get the soundtrack on Amazon.
You can also find the score on ITunes.
Would you like some clips?
