Love Potion No. 9 Review


OK
Want to see Sandra Bullock in non-glam mode? Here's an early appearance by the big star when it looked like she was headed into a career as the romantic interest for the Revenge of the Nerds series. A so-so and really schlocky film otherwise, but it hooks me all the time on cable.

My Cousin Vinny Review


Excellent
Marisa Tomei won one of the most controversial Oscars ever for her brash performance as Joe Pesci's dumbass lawyer girlfriend in this film, and -- her high, loud voice aside -- she's the least memorable part of the film. Rather, a genuinely funny script with dialogue perfectly delivered by Pesci ("What is a grit!?") gets tons of laughs. After all, he's a gambino wannabe lawyer trapped in a Southern small town. Michael J. Fox in the South doesn't get laughs. Pesci does. Very funny fish-out-of-water flick and, Oscar notwithstanding, generally underrated.
