Probably my favorite movies with Joe Pesci include: Home Alone, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, and My Cousin Vinny. In the Home Alone movies, Joe plays the house robber villain after a kid. In My Cousin Vinny, he plays the lawyer hero who defends the lives of two teenagers. These 3 movies are both similar and different at the same time. They all have humor (which Joe is perfect for), but Joe plays the hero in one and the villain in two.moreless
  • He really proves the saying,"Laughter is the best medicine" to be true!

    This actor puts the "un" in funny! He was hilarious in Home Alone 1 and 2,Gone Fishing,My Cousin Vinny, and more! Every single time this guy talks i laugh and who wouldn't? Who could forget in Gone Fishing when him and Danny Glover were sitting in the restarant(in the hotel)and people were looking at them with judgement on how could those slobs be eating at a place like this? Well this one elderly woman looks at Joe Pesci while he is sitting down and he says "What are u looking at?". That part had me crying my beady little eyes out with LAUGHTER for days!moreless
