Sac-O-Suds in My Cousin Vinny: Past, Present, & Future

Posted by Chris on May 27, 2014


In September 2012 I published a blog post titled “My Cousin Vinny: Then and Now 20th Anniversary” to celebrate the 20th anniversary of one of my all-time favorite films – My Cousin Vinny. The post includes lots of photos and videos, and was well received by many fans across the Web.

After receiving great feedback and so many readers showing interest in learning more about the filming locations, I decided to publish a second blog post titled “My Cousin Vinny Filming Locations” to share my travel itinerary with other fans so they can experience all the filming locations as well.

My Cousin Vinny Filming Locations
Last September I published a blog post titled “My Cousin Vinny: Then and Now 20th Anniversary” after I visited more than 10 filming locations in July 2012. I wrote the blog post to share my experience with family and friends who like the movie, as well as all the My Cousin Vinny fans around the Web. After all, it was the film’s 20th anniversary so I thought it would be a nice treat for everyone.

The blog post received an overwhelming positive response from people all across the country. I’ve received countless messages on Twitter, Facebook, and via the Contact form on this website telling me how much they enjoyed reading the blog post and seeing all the then-and-now photos. The guys over at Adventure Club Podcast even invited me on their show to do an interview. Although I received a lot of awesome feedback, several readers wanted to know the physical address of many of the filming locations so they could visit them as well.

Let me start this post by saying that I’m not a huge movie buff, but like anyone else I do enjoy watching movies and also have a list of movies that I call my favorites. Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Breakfast Club, Casino, and Heat are just a few of the movie titles that hold a comfortable spot on my all-time favorite list. However, My Cousin Vinny, a 1992 comedy film directed by Jonathan Lynn, definitely rounds out the top ten on my all-time favorite list of movies. Perhaps you’ve seen it, heard of it? Ok, well, if you fall into the very small group of movie-goers who have missed this hilarious film here’s the plot in a nutshell.

Joe Pesci, Marisa Tomei, Ralph Macchio, and Chris Credendino (Ok, I kid. I kid. You can strike my name from the list of actors, but my last name does end in the letter “o,” I am Italian, come from New York, and think I would have added something a little extra to the film – just sayin’.) are among the actors who headline the star-studded cast in this hilarious comedy about two New Yorkers who are accused of murder in rural Alabama while traveling back to college. Vincent “Vinny” Gambini, a loudmouth, obnoxious personal injury attorney from Brooklyn with zero trial experience heads south to defend the “two yutes.” Oh, excuse me… I mean… two YOUUUTHS! And so the laughs begin!
