18. ‘My Cousin Vinny’ (1992)
Memorable quote: “I fit in better than you. At least I’m wearing cowboy boots.”
Laugh factor: In a fish-out-of-water comedy, laughs are cheap. New Yorkers in rural Alabama? Easy. But as unbelievable as they may be as a couple, Joe Pesci and Marisa Tomei share considerable on-screen chemistry as squabbling urbanites. Pesci’s usual tough guy persona is such a stark contrast in the American South that you forget he’s arguing a murder trial.
