the delightful romantic comedy My Cousin Vinny (1992)
In a small town of the South,
a teenager and his friend are accused of robbery and murder.
The teenager calls his family and they send to help him his New York cousin,
who just started practicing law.
The New York "lawyer" arrives in town driving an old car, wearing a black
leather jacket and accompanied by his attractive but
hot-tempered girlfriend, Lisa, who also happens to be an expert in automobiles.
The trial does not start well for the defendant because the judge is an
old-fashioned southerner who takes issue with the New Yorker's casual style
and repeatedly finds him in contempt, a charge that takes the "lawyer"
repeatedly to the local jail.
the girlfriend has to pay bail for him, but something
always keeps Vinny from obeying the judge's orders, which results in one
visit to the jail after the other. Vinny is also quite naif and relies on
his girlfriend to find out how the law works.
In between sessions, Vinny gets to know the conservative and violent mentality
of the town's citizens who do not welcome his liberal city manners.
One of the teenagers recuses him and chooses
another attorney, but it turns out this attorney is even worse, because he
gets nervous in front of the court. On the other hand, Vinny finally catches
some sleep in jail and starts kicking. He may not know much about the law,
but he does know how to deal with ordinary folks and discredits one by one
all the witnesses of the defense.
Finally, after countless arguments
between the lawyer and his girlfriend that threaten to destroy their
relationship, and after countless sarcasm between the judge and the lawyer,
the lawyer sees the light: tire tracks left by the robbers
prove that it could not have been his cousin to commit the murders. The
key witness is his own girlfriend, who has to be literally dragged in court
to offer her testimony, despite her hostile attitude towards the lawyer.
The timing couldn't be better because the judge had begun to doubt the
lawyer's credentials and the lawyer was fabricanting one lie after the other.
The judge releases the youth and congratulates the lawyer, whom he recognizes
as a prestigious New York attorney (his pacified girlfriend has pulled another
of her tricks).
