    So I’ve seen this movie a million times on DVD … and I never noticed this until I got it on Blu-Ray.

    Joe Pesci is using Scotch tape to pull back his wrinkles!

    Check it out. This is just a snapshot of my TV, but it’s clearly visible.

    1. She didnt star in a movie about gays

    2. She didnt cry

    3. She didnt speak in a British accent

    4. No one had AIDS in the movie

    5. More than 5 people went to see the film

    6. It was a movie that made people laugh

    7. She didnt pretend to be a man

    8. She had the nerve to appear in a movie that appealed to a wide audience

    9. She didnt star in a movie that preached to people about a social issue

    10. The Coen Bros, Paul Thomas Anderson, or whatever other artsy fartsy director didnt direct it.

    Basically anyone who gave Marisa Tomei grief for her Oscar win was a stuck up pretencious film snob. Tomei was laugh out loud funny and a total scene stealer in a film people liked. God forbid she beat Joan Plowright playing a cranky old hag in some bore of a film 5 people saw or Judy Davis playing a stuck up b— (which she is in real life) in a pretencious boring unfunny lame Woody Allen effort or Vanessa Redgrave in a 10 minute role that was nothing, or Miranda Richardson who cried in 1 5 min scene in a dreadful movie.

    Basically what I’m saying is that people who hate on Tomei’s Oscar win can suck it.

    When an misunderstanding goes horribley crazy? The perfect storm?

    My abriged version:

    I stop off at the dry cleaners park in a spot Go inside. While waiting in line. Someone is waving at me. Thinking that she was waving at me or perhaps mistook me for someone else. I wave back and keep at my business. I later come out and get into my car. This lady parked next to me is bumping my door. I had a jalopy, so it didn’t mean much. She goes into the store. So I try to start up my car and it doesn’t work. So Im waiting until it’s "ready" to start. Meanwhile I hear this thumping noise its this lady bumping my car again. I get out and inquire as to why she’s doing it. The lady starts yelling at me (meanwhile onlookers start to appear) about the spot being too tight for her to park and later get her baby out of the backseat and she was waving at me to adjust my car. And I "ignored" her and "flipped me off" etc… I’m trying to convince this lady that I had no idea what she’s talking about. Then comes the kicker. She says "…you saw me bump your car, got angry. And you were waiting for me to come back out to start up some trouble" (remember my car couldnt start) I explained to her that wasn’t my intention as my car wasn’t starting we go back and forth she isn’t listening to reason. I decide to leave and prove to her that was the case. Lo and behold, MY CAR STARTS. So I look like a liar. Long story short. If things had esclated further, and it ended up going to court. To the witnesses of this event it appeared that.

    1. I did wave the lady off

    2. Waited outside for her.

    3. There was a man arguing with lady and her tiny baby.

    I would’nt even have a chance! Like I said. The perect storm

    Im the Alpha and the Omoxus. The Omoxus and the Omega

    So I understand that Lisa knows a lot about cars, and she is able to identify the tires treads, etc. But how did Vinny know? Vinny figured it out before she did, remember, and he only used her as a witness in court to prove it. Was vinny a mechanic too?

    The istant grits conversation was my favorite part.

    Vinny Gambini: Eggs and grits. I like grits, too. How do you cook your grits? Do you like them regular, creamy or al dente?

    Mr. Tipton: Just regular I guess.

    Vinny Gambini: Regular. Instant grits?

    Mr. Tipton: No self respectin’ Southerner uses instant grits. I take pride in my grits.

    Vinny Gambini: So, Mr. Tipton, how could it take you 5 minutes to cook your grits when it takes the entire grit eating world 20 minutes?

    Mr. Tipton: I don’t know, I’m a fast cook I guess.

    Vinny Gambini: I’m sorry I was all the way over here I couldn’t hear you did you say you were a fast cook, that’s it?

    Mr. Tipton: Yeah.

    Vinny Gambini: Are we to believe that boiling water soaks into a grit faster in your kitchen than anywhere else on the face of the earth?

    Mr. Tipton: I don’t know.

    Vinny Gambini: Well, I guess the laws of physics cease to exist on top of your stove. Were these magic grits? Did you buy them from the same guy who sold Jack his beanstalk beans?

    it seemed early on like there was a conspiracy against them, but then it ended just fine. Does anybody think that the script may have been altered at some point to accommodate some sort of new thinking?

    "Did you fall into your place or somebody elses?"

    "My place."

    *beep*

    I know its not word for word, but my question is, what did that mean? Was that indicating that the bully beat that guy up in the neck-brace or something else? Just curious. Always wondered that.

    "Judge, I’d like to voir dire the witness…"

    I don’t know the rest of the line. Maybe it’s my dirty mind, but I’ve never heard a line of legalese given with such sexual subtext. The way Lane Smith delivers this line, he might as well be asking the judge if she can undress Miss Vito and play hide the pickle. His delivery had a precisely measured amount of sleaze.

    Does anyone else know what I mean?

    When Vinny tells Lisa that the Judge knows about Gallo being dead, he doesn’t tell her any other details before they fight. Then, at the end, Lisa tells Vinny that she called and got his lawyer friend to vouch for "Jerry Callo." She wouldn’t know how to help. And in her mood prior to the testimony, it didn’t seem she’d be helping him anyways.

    Since nobody started this discussion, I’ll do it. What you learn from this movie is to make sure when you are arrested to understand what you are being arrested for and cooperate with the police. I think Bill should’ve said something to Sheriff Farley at the beginning to make Farley realize he was talking about shoplifting and not murder so when he said he shot the clerk Farley wouldn’t have misunderstood. But then again, we wouldn’t have a film if that happened.

    I read in a Oscar book that when the film was released Tomei’s line ("Oh yeah, you blend")became an instant pop catchphrase. Can anybody verify this? Was this a big saying in 1992, much like how "Show me the money" was THE pop catchphrase of 1996? I know the movie was a big hit, so I could see this.

    Thanks!

    Imagine a sitcom called ‘Vinny Gambini, Esq.’ Starring Joe Peschy as Vinny Gambini and some complete unknown as Mona Lisa Vitto Gambini, his sarcastic, knowledgeable, well informed wife/assistant, working out of a rundown office in Brooklyn. While she does most of his research for him, he ends up kicking ass in court and getting his innocent (and not so innocent) clients off.

    I can see it running for at least two seasons.

    I’ve tasted the metallic taste of irony,

    Now I need a tetanus shot!

    Just before Lisa gets on the stand, Vinny writes down something to give to the sheriff to trace. What did he write down? How did he know that by giving that piece of paper to the sheriff, he would find clearance about the Stan and William? Where did he even get the information?

    When the prosecution brought up the FBI automobile expert as a witness, Vinny objected because the prosecution didnt give him advance notice as required by law, springing it on him as a surprise in the court.

    When Vinny objected, the Judge admitted that it was an intelligent answer and such, but then overruled him.

    Other than he hated Vinny, was there a good, legal reason why he overruled Vinny’s objection?

    I’d say it was one of 3 moments….

    1. Where Vinny punches JT and takes the money he’s owed

    2. When Vinny can’t get to sleep cos of all the stuff that’s happening outside (such as the owl and him going "Wtf was that?!?")

    3. When the judge says to Vinny "What did i tell you about the strictdress code we have here?" (or something like that) and he replies with "what, you were f***ing serious?", then it cuts to him going back to jail… XD

    Now, I’ve never been to law school, and I don’t know anyone who did personally, so maybe I’m just not getting this, but could someone please explain to me the motive behind Vinny needing to tell the judge that he was Jerry Gallow (Later Jerry Callow)? Was he just trying to impress the judge by saying he was this big, famous lawyer, or is there some law that said Vinny wouldn’t be allowed to defend the boys if he’d never appeared in a court case?

    Can someone help clear this up for me? Thanks in advance?

    That the mistake about Ralph Macchio’s character making the mistake of confessing to the murder when he thought they were talking about the accidental shoplifting, please tell me that in real life a mistake like that can’t happen. Like if you confess you have to really have it spelled it out. Like, "I Ralph Macchio freely admitted that I shot and murdered that guy, and I did it on purpose", or something like that.

    How could Vinny get a law degree and never learn about discovery procedures (where the prosecution has to disclose the evidence they have before trial.)

    It is part of just about every case both civil and criminal. Where did he get his law degree, out of a CrackerJack box?

    I’ve been watching this a lot recently, and during the crime scene at the beginning you can see a policeman dusting for fingerprints on the front door knob.

    Wouldn’t the police have fingerprinted the boys and compared them to what was found at the store? It’s my guess that the witnesses would have called the police right after the real suspects shot the clerk and sped away, which ultimately would mean that no other customers came into the store after the crime was committed.

    From the first time that Judge Haller sees Vinny in court, Lisa is with him. She is the one with him when he comes to court late wearing the ridiculous Ringling Bros. circus master of ceremonies suit. She is the one whose hand he slaps after his successful cross examination of the woman with the glasses.

    So, in the climatic scene with Lisa on the witness stand, why does Judge Haller ask, "Do you two know each other?"

    He’s seen her in the courtroom every day of the trial sitting directly behind Vinny.

    It seemed like an unnecessary question.
