My Cousin Vinny :: Part 1

You may be asking yourself, “Why has she posted the DVD cover of the movie, “MY COUSIN VINNY?”

You must be thinking that I am going to write a movie review. Well, I’m not.

I would be very surprised to hear that you haven’t seen, “My Cousin Vinny“. After all, it was released in 1992. I do love this movie though, and it’s special to me. One reason this movie is special to me is, (as you already know) the story revolves around a murder that takes place in a small town in Alabama, and these two guys from New York are wrongfully accused, as they are only passing through on their vacation. They get put under the jail, and this is when cousin Vinny (Joe Pesci), an Italian, NY attorney comes to the rescue. Most all of you know by now, that I live in Alabama. And while we’re on the subject, let me say that my town is nothing like the town depicted in this film. But, I can take you across the county line to one or two that are similar. J I’ve visited many towns across this land, big and small, and our town isn’t much different from yours, I promise. I personally do not know anyone named, “Bubba.” Oh, but they’re out there. I’ve seen a few good ole boys at the Wal-Mart that, if I had to guess their name, that name would be my first guess. I’m sure they are harmless. Just different, that’s all.

Back to the movie. Reason two that this movie is special to me. My Cousin Vinny is the very last movie that my husband and I saw at the theater together. Yeah, almost 12 years since the two of us have had dinner and a movie, out. We’ve gone out to dinner a number of times, but not to the movies. Since we’ve had Stephen, we’ve rarely had the time or the money to do both, so we choose dinner, so we can relax, sit back and be served while we have conversation, just the two of us. Something we can’t do at home in the rush of things. Our conversations are always about Stephen, of course.

I just thought I’d share this with you all, because, when people ask us, “What was the last movie you guys saw at the theater?” we have to nearly pick them up, off the floor after they’ve heard our answer.

LOL- Slo.. (you're gonna laugh) as a matter of fact, I can't tell you how many times we've pulled up to the theater, went in and ordered a large bucket of popcorn, smothered in yummy butter, and the 3 of us "licked the bucket clean" while watching a video at home. LOL!
