My Cousin Vinny

Plot hole: While we never see Lisa leave the courtroom at the end to call Judge Malloy to send the fax verifying Jerry Callo, it is possible she snuck away for a minute to do it after the dismissal and before they leave the town. However, Vinnie does not ever seem to mention that he told the judge he is Callo to her so how did she know? He must have mentioned it to her while they were rushing to leave, they were back on speaking terms and she called Malloy.

Continuity mistake: The scene filmed in 'Daves Bar-B-Q' is across the street from a bank that has an outdoor sign indicating time and temperature visible through the restaurant window behind Vinny. When the meal begins, the time is in the 12:00 o'clock hour. Seconds later when the clock is visible again the time is in the 4:00 o'clock hour. The judge only permitted a 60 minute recess. (01:34:20 - 01:36:00)

Trivia: During the stuttering lawyer's opening statements, if you look in the backround, you will see Vinny, Stan, and Ralph Macchio laughing. It's really obvious when the lawyer is walking back to the table, and Stan has a smirk on his face, trying not to laugh.
