    It is every bit as funny now as when I saw it the first time.

    I love the, "My biological clock is ticking" but and the Two youts! hahahahahaa

    Would regularly drive by the filming locations (Georgia). Always brings a smile to my face. The Sac-O-Suds store at the the beginning of the movie is still there and still called Sac-O-Suds.

    My supervisor Nancy does an outstanding impression of Marisa Tomei in that movie , not to mention it's her favorite movie also of all time , but also knows every line .....including this scene :p

    I have a cousin with a similar tone of voice but less Ney York and more Chicago.

    My Uncle/Godfather was her dad and an insurance adjuster in Chicago and before that a glider pilot in the war. God rest their souls and My Aunts was one of the kindest people I have ever known. Hahhaha

    this movie is terrific and if you've watched the new Spiderman movies, you can confirm that Marisa Tomei is a vampire. That is the only explanation...

    I think the whole world fell in love with Marisa Tomei thanks to that movie. She won an Oscar for it as I recall. And yeah, it's every bit as funny today as it was 25+ years ago!

    Being a native of New York City I still have my accent. It had faded a little since I have been gone from the city for a long time, but when I'm around another New Yorker it comes back in spades.

    I grew up in northern Indiana, but, due to the proximity, I sound like a Chicagoite. Being Polish is part of it. Dis, Dat, Dem, Dese, Dose, Vat's dat ting, How's by you, etc. I can speak proper English, and am obviously NOT a Hoosier, but a Regionite (NW Indiana). I sound like the guys in that SNL skit about Da Bears.
    When I moved 100 miles south, I had people say "Yer a furner, ain't cha?" Parts of Indiana sounds like you're deep in Alabama or Mississippi. And no one really knows just what a "Hoosier" is. I suspect it's the French Canadian pronunciation of "Hoser".

    It's not just a hilarious comedy—it's also one of the most accurate lawyer movies ever made. Seriously. My evidence law prof once told our class that My Cousin Vinny was the movie with the most realistic portrayal of the law of evidence. I thought he was kidding. Now, after 14 years as a criminal lawyer, I can confirm that he was dead right.

    And the Magic Grits scene is a master class in cross-examination.

    These clips are hilarious. I can’t believe I’ve never heard of this movie. Marisa is a peach. Is that the same accent as the Nanny?

    “You were serious about that?”

    If you want to see more of her Oscar winning acting, The Wrestler.
