When sweet Northern college kid Bill and his buddy Stan are picked up and thrown into the slammer in a hick Southern town, at first it looks like no big deal. Then they are informed that they are accused of murder. Penniless and without a single friend in the area, Bill decides to call his goofy cousin Vinny (Joe Pesci), who has somehow recently become a lawyer. Full of family feeling and bravado, Vinny, who has never tried a criminal case in his short life as a lawyer, rides south with this equally brassy girlfriend (Marisa Tomei in an Academy Award winning performance) to defend his trusting relative.
