Did Judge Chamberlain Haller Get the Math Wrong in a Key Scene in ‘My Cousin Vinny’?
In 1992, My Cousin Vinny was released. The film, which was once predicted to be a middling hit, has only risen in popularity over time. Even legal specialists have praised the film, claiming that it is a true depiction of the legal system. While the picture is fairly accurate, observant viewers may have seen a mistake with Judge Chamberlain Haller and Vincent Gambini.
Vinny Gambini was given 90 minutes to win his case by Judge Chamberlain Haller.
Judge Chamberlain Haller informed Vinny Gambini that he only had 90 minutes to win his case because the New York courts would call him back at 3 p.m. in a famous scene. Haller had dialed Vinny Gambini’s number in order to learn more about him. Vinny knew he’d be in great trouble if Haller had unequivocal proof that he’d overstated his experience after lying to the judge about it.
Vinny set out to win his case and flee Alabama as quickly as possible. However, he could have slowed down a little more. If a clock outside the diner is to be trusted, the struggling New York attorney had closer to 2 hours to win his case.
Fans believe the My Cousin Vinny production team made a plot hole by unintentionally.
Either Judge Haller was mistaken about the time, or the production staff set up the next scene incorrectly. Vinny grabbed lunch with his fiancée, Mona Lisa Vito, after his appointment with the court. Lisa, played by Marisa Tomei, and Vinny, played by Joe Pesci, sat in the neighborhood diner’s window seat. The Character of Mona Lisa Vito Was Almost Cut From ‘My Cousin Vinny’
A clock stood outside the window… This is a condensed version of the narrative. I hope you found it entertaining.
