Marisa Tomei made the cross over into movies in The Flamingo Kid (1984). One of her early memorable roles was playing Sylvester Stallone's bratty daughter in the comedy Oscar. She also had a part as silent-screen comedienne Mabel Normand, in the 1992 film Chaplin.

In 1992, Marisa Tomei played in My Cousin Vinny, as the fiancée of a New York attorney played by Joe Pesci, and won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her performance.

Tomei played in the 2001 comedy What Women Want as Mel Gibson's disgruntled ex-lover.

In 2003, Marisa Tomei played with Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler in Anger Management, as the girlfriend of a schlump court ordered to undergo "anger management" with a crazed counselor. A wacky road trip ensues, with the counselor attempting to usurp the affections of the girlfriend.
