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, Im not.
I would be very surprised to hear that you havent seen, My Cousin Vinny. After all, it was released in 1992. I do love this movie though, and its 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 were 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 Ive visited many towns across this land, big and small, and our town isnt much different from yours, I promise. I personally do not know anyone named, Bubba. Oh, but theyre out there. Ive 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. Im sure they are harmless. Just different, thats 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. Weve gone out to dinner a number of times, but not to the movies. Since weve had Stephen, weve 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 cant do at home in the rush of things. Our conversations are always about Stephen, of course.
I just thought Id 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 theyve heard our answer.
