‘MY COUSIN VINNIE’
Though most “yutes” in the area will surely not have heard of the 1992 courtroom comedy “My Cousin Vinnie,” there are plenty of us who clearly remember the unexpected pleasures of seeing tough guy Joe Pesci in a drop dead comedy. Then there was the welcome appearance of Herman Munster himself, Fred Gwynne, as a salt-of-the-earth country judge, and the on-screen debut of Marisa Tomei, who won an Oscar for best supporting actress for her work in the film. It’s back, courtesy of Boulevard Cinema’s weekly Flashback Series. 12:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. The film repeats on Wednesday at the same times. Cinemawest.com.
