Product Description

Paul Vitti (Robert De Niro) is one of New York's most powerful mobsters. But the stress of the job is getting to him; he's having panic attacks, losing his concentration, and his colleagues and his mistress are getting more than a little concerned. In desperation, Paul goes to the only psychiatrist he's ever heard of, Ben Sobol (Billy Crystal), who is less than pleased when his comfortable life is invaded by mobsters.

From Amazon.co.uk

Cast Robert De Niro and Billy Crystal together in a film and it should be a sucker's bet as to who's going to be funnier and who's going to give the more nuanced performance. Somehow, though, De Niro walks away with most of the laughs, mugging gleefully through Analyze This, a buddy action-comedy about a mob boss (De Niro, naturally) suffering from panic attacks who makes a shrink (Crystal, naturally) an offer he can't refuse--actually, it's not really an offer, it's a command. The good doctor is forced to help the gangster get in touch with his feelings. Had the brilliant TV series The Sopranos not underscored how thin and formulaic director-cowriter Harold Ramis's approach to such potentially rich material actually is, the movie--a hit in cinemas (and De Niro's biggest film ever)--would seem more fresh. De Niro is definitely a hoot as the ever milder menace and Crystal actually concentrates on giving a credible performance opposite the acting legend (alas, he doesn't turn his character's fear of his patient into inspired comedy, as Alan Arkin did in Grosse Pointe Blank). The conclusion devolves into the requisite gunplay and Chazz Palminteri and Lisa Kudrow are criminally wasted as an opposing mob boss and Crystal's fiancée, respectively, but overall, Analyze This is breezy fun. --David Kronke

Criminal mastermind Paul Vitti (De Niro) struggles with his emotions after seeing his friend murdered and sees psychiatrist Ben Sobel (Crystal) to cure him.

The first thing that struck me about `Analyse This' is that it contains two fine acting leads. And the second thing was that the promise for this film was very strong, after realising what the story was about.

A hard nosed criminal tries to reconnect with emotions. And that in itself spells quite a few interesting dilemmas; given Robert De Niro is the gangster in question.

After getting his career under way with his role in the second Godfather film Rob De Niro has cemented himself in strong dramatic roles that were all equally fantastic and here he branches out to the comedy genre, and he doesn't half nail it. Though the opening back story is one of the worst current day establishing motives in comedy history that is forgotten soon enough as we see Paul Vitti and a friend in a café where bullets fly through the window and he loses a close friend.

Two stories intertwine as Billy Crystal's Dr Ben Sobel is preparing for his wedding when Vitti intrudes on his professional life and soon the comedy ensues.

What follows is an excellent execution of a brilliant idea. Having a stereotypical view of gangsters and mobs intrude on an everyman's life brings about some flourishing set pieces of action and typical Crystal deadpanning. I am usually against stereotyping in films, but here it works as a treat because of the fact they are so stereotyped that we can associate with Crystal's protagonist and laugh along at the humour and enjoy the spectacle.

this is another black comedy by robert deniro and it is probably his funniest one so far. it blends violence with laughter and it does it well, and there are so many laughs throughout the film. it is about a mafia boss(deniro) who is having a nervous breakdown so he goes to the best pschyciatrist in the business(billy crystal) but he doesnt want anything to do with it but deniro hassles him until he does because mafia bosses always get what they want!!!

This is a great film with the exact mix of gangster realism and humour. De Niro is just as you'd expect him to be in a mafia role but with a few surprises. Anytime I feel like a good laugh this is the one that comes off the shelf.

I put this on one night looking for some black humour and it was great.
I've seen it several times before but it seems to improve with age. I'm not a huge De Niro fan but I think he's a great straight man and foil to Crystal's chirpy therapist.
One reason this is great film is that it's based on the truth. We're all affected by our childhood and that's what this story is about. It's about revealing the inner child and exposing those hidden demons. Demons that can destroy us if allowed to feed on our souls unchecked. They need to be exorcised!
De Niro does very well in the scenes where he needs to break down and sob uncontrollably. He had me crying. He's truly charismatic and of course he's a believable mobster.
The fat actor with the lived-in face is superb as 'Jelly' the gangster 'factotum', Vitti's dogsbody, bodyguard and enforcer - he's just great!
This a fantastic romp with a real message. 'We all need family!'
JP.

This film is very funny, but in parallel also is very serious, because I think it contains more truth and reality than simple or non experienced people can suppose.
Yes, courage can be a valor of double edge. Valiant soldiers and another people as policemen, firemen, etc, accustomed to deal with risk, no doubt have in real life these "battle fatigue" or nervous failures. Much persons suffer "panic attacks", not ever owing to an immediate danger, but to the continuous stress of life, work, family...
Only fictional men as agent 007 is free of these. Usually cinema shows only the other side of fantastic, but infantile unreal superheroes.
Instead, the clinical symptoms that shows the Paul Viti, the capo of the mafia played by Robert de Niro are fully credible. He's a real gangster and his violent life is a real, continuous stress and danger and, more than this, he must offer the external appearance of being a dangerous and strong man to the other capos and to have lovers he really doesn't need nor love only for pure ostentation. Final psychoanalitic explanation I find not believable but that's a minor detail.
And also are credible the courage of Ben Sobel the timid doctor played by Billy Crystal has to rejoin to deal with such a patient. Summing up, a movie plenty of good humour but furthermore, deep and more serious than usually thought, and I think underrated. An excellent and unusual film.

Robert De nero and Billy Crystal never fail to show their supurb acting skills in this carefully constructed movie - just watching the expressions on De Nero's face made me burst out laughing. De nero's side kick Jelly also provides humour filled moments. This film made me laugh so much I had to get it! You! You're good you!
