Even if you don't love them, it's a great very funny movie!!

Who knows how much worse this film would have fared in the hands of less talented and skillful actors.

It's a shame, too, because too much of this movie seems ... well... not funny.

To fans of Billy Crystal and Robert DeNiro - you do not want to miss this film. On a scale of 1-10 it comes in at 10 plus! The gags are absolutely hilarious and one can tell that these two lead characters are really enjoying themselves immensely! Lisa Kudrow's sarcasm quips were priceless! Sure it looks like a takeoff on the Soprano's but with more of a comedic theme. It being a matter of choice - my husband and I agree that this was superb!

Shrink Ben Sobel (Billy Crystal) receives a call from his former pattient, mobster Paul Vitti (Robert De Niro) during his father's funeral. He is brought into prison to treat Vitti; who has been singing songs from Broadway musicals before lapsing into a state of catatonia. This doesn't surprise Sobel who diagnoses Vitti as having "brief psychotic disorder". The problem is that the mobster could become a permanemt schizo if he remains in the prison environment. The solution? Have Vitti released into Dr.Sobel's care- and if Sobel refuses to accept he loses his license to practice psychiatry. So Sobel has no choice but to again work with a guy "with an I.Q just south of a bedroom slipper".
But upon picking Vitti up from prison Sobel finds out that the mafioso's been faking his symptoms because he's been targeted by his old cronies who literally want his head on a plate. So it's up to Sobel to attempt once more to help Vitti go straight. The first job opportunity that comes along seems talior made for Vitti: as a Creative Consultant on a Mob movie, which predictably turns sour. So it's not long before Vitti's back to his old ways, joining crime lord Lou Rigazzi and his "family" to help plan a gold heist, which Ben finds himself dragged into.
With Crystal and Barry Levinson serving as Executive Producers, and again Directed and Co-written by Harold Ramis, the man behind the wonderful GROUNDHOG DAY and the amusing MULTIPLICITY; ANALYZE THAT is a huge disappointment which pales in comparison to its predecessor. Obviously just an attempt to cash in on the success of the first movie, it's lacking that crucial something: A good script.

"Analyze This" was somewhat amusing but not a film that stands up to repeat viewings. Especially since the freshness of the idea has been completely dampened by the successful & far superior HBO series "The Sopranos".
The sequel, and I don't know why they bothered(actually I do - $$$$$$$$), is depressing viewing simply b/c most of it is just a re-hash of the first film. The brief out-takes provided are funnier than the entire film.
With "Analyze That", we have Crystal's Dr. Sobel grieving the loss of his own father at the beginning of the film and we're treated to Sobel saying at least 5 times throughout: "I'm grieving. It's a process." We got it the first time you said it. And it wasn't very funny to begin with. We also get to go over the whole assassination of Vitti's father thing, with the requisite flashbacks, and how that has scarred him. This territory was mined in the first film and they didn't need to go there again. But they do. The only difference in this film is that we have Vitti faking lunacy(this is where we have to sit through the painfully unfunny scene of Deniro doing a few Broadway show tunes in prison) and being entrusted to the care of Crystal's Sobel with much hilarity ensuing. Not even close.
One of the best things about the first film was the character Jelly and some of Crystals reactions & line readings. I didn't find Deniro funny at all in the first film. But in "Analyze That", Jelly has hardly anything to do at all and isn't remotely funny. Crystal has a couple of lines I laughed at and Kudrow is again wasted along with Cathy Moriarty, whom I usually love. Vitti & Sobel get to cry again. Ugh!!! Why is it so often necessary to weigh down comedic films with mawkish sentimentality.

The only reason I'm reviewing this movie now is because I just watched it on TV today. And the only reason I watched it was because nothing else was on. So...

No, let's be fair. I did enjoy Analyze This, I really did, though it wasn't a masterpiece that would remain with me for the rest of my life, or even for the rest of the day. And I do love both Billy Crystal and Robert De Niro; they made a fantastic comedic duo in the first movie. I didn't have very high expectations, though, because I rarely expect too much of sequels. Once again, I was proven right.

Analyze That illustrates perfectly why `sequel' sounds like such a dirty word. The original film had a spark of originality; the sequel merely takes the same idea and the same jokes and tries to make them funny again. But of course, that could never work. It's the same problem with almost every comedic sequel: those who haven't seen the original wouldn't understand the jokes, and those who have already heard them before. And that is why they fail time after time.

So what does this movie have? A great comedic duo, a couple of really funny guys. Yeah, and? Fathers' Day had an even better pair, look what happened to that. A couple of good mafia jokes? Sure, sure. I even cracked a smile on several occasions. But that isn't enough. There are thousands of comedy films out there; not many of them have that special something that makes them memorable, and producers think they'll improve their odds by recycling the ones that work instead of trying to get new ideas. Newsflash: think again. Nobody watches these movies. There's no reason to when you can just watch the original again.
