My Cousin Vinny

I watched this movie for the first time last week on TBS. And I have watched it on almost everytime it was played again. I dont know how I never came across this classic movie earlier. It is a brilliant comedy and Joe Pesci is fantastic and so is the ENTIRE cast. Seriously - its extremely rare to find a movie in which EVERY single character big or small, performing this well.

Just watch this scene, notice the judge, the members of jury, the witnesses, the defendants as the defense counsellor spews his opening statement. Hilarious!!!

After Joe Pesci, if I was asked to pick the next best funniest character in the movie, I would blindly choose the Judge played by Fred Gwynne. Every single line of his dialog, however simple it may be, he delivers it in such an enjoyable manner. Just watch him deliver this simple line - "Counsellor... your statement sir."

I enjoy movies with courtroom scenes. Most of the movies I have in this blog would be mainly because of that. BUT a movie where the courtroom itself is made the stage for all the humor - WOW! The movie is every bit as intelligent as funny it is.

My Favorite Movie Quotes - Billy Madison

This is a very inspiring movie - inspiring you to be crazy and do insanely humurous things. And needless to say - full of funny dialog and goofy quotes.

Was watching this movie on TV today, not sure how many times I have seen this movie before but still would watch it again and again. No doubt.

Adam Sandler is funny as ever BUT somehow the Principal gets the BEST funniest dialog of the movie!

In the climax where Billy is asked to talk about Industrial Revolution, he talks about some bullshit story about a puppy that gets lost in the woods and tries to relate that with how the Industry is the puppy and how it got lost... An AWESTRUCK principal says this.. probably the most hilarious quote of all time cinema:

Principal: Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

Billy Madison: Okay, a simple WRONG would've done just fine.

My Favorite Movie Quotes - Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

Just like the original movie, this one is full of fantastic dialog.

Michael Douglas ROCKS! Seriously wish him good luck with what he is fighting.

He is as flamboyant as ever and has some of the most memorable quotes for us:

Gordon Gekko: Someone reminded me I once said "Greed is good". Now it seems it's legal.

Gordon Gekko: The mother of all evil is speculation.

Gordon Gekko: Bulls make money. Bears make money. Pigs... They get slaughtered.

Gordon Gekko: Stop telling lies about me and I'll stop telling the truth about you.

Gordon Gekko: Quotes - "Parents are the bone on which children sharpen their teeth."

Gordon Gekko: Money is a bitch that never sleeps!

It took me to those days in September 2008 when everyone at office was looking at the headlines and reading what was in store;

Will there be a bailout? Have we lost our jobs?

People would be making jokes just to conceal their nervousness.

Anyways, great movie. I loved it just for Michael Douglas.


This movie is in most peoples bottom of the list 2010 movies not without reason. It shamelessly begs, borrows AND steals from almost every alien movie made so far. Even the music lacks originality. Just like most of the others, I watched it ONLY to see the CGI and that is All that I got. So I cant complain about that. But I had lowered my expectations, thats why.

Kids who do not care about the script or the story or the class and just want to watch some gleaming graphics and some gruesome alien fighting would probably watch this movie.

Too many technically incorrect g;itches and potholes in the script. And totally uninteresting story telling. This movie really sucks bigtime. In the climax they showed some signs of continuing this into a sequel! If that is true it is only the height of audacity!
