I could watch this film dozens of times and still laugh. Billie Crystal does the drama really convincingly (as well as the comedy, of course) and De Niro is a great comedian as well as dramatic actor. What a stunning combination of personalities. I can't explain why it makes me laugh so much each time see it. I wouldn't want to analyze it to death (LOL).

Crystal's edgy, at times insecure portrait of the psychiatrist is touching as well as expressing the soul of kindness and caring and De Niro's depiction of the softening mob boss who simply wants to progress to a peaceful life and leave criminality behind is theatre at its best--catharsis and transformation. I can't say enough good things. Laughter heals the soul. So buy it already!

Before watching this film you do need to watch Analyze This Analyze This [DVD] [1999]. If you would give Analyze This 4 or 5 stars you will probably really enjoy this follow up. As follow up goes it is well done but definitely not as enjoyable as Analyze That which is less chaotic. Both these films are tongue in cheek stories about a gangster who goes into therapy with a very reluctant therapist. The story lines are not meant to be taken seriously nor are the references to Freudian theory. A film to sit back and enjoy and to take at face value.

Both these films are a joy. The performances from both Billy and Bobby are hilariously funny, poking fun at the mafia and at some of Bob's previuos performances as a ganster. The story line is inventive and places plenty of oppurtunity for gags(no pun intended!). The sequel does not match the first but De Niro's "West Side Story" scene will have you splitting your sides in Analyse That! Together they are one of my favorite comedies and gangster movies. Rarely can you put a film in both categories!!!

Robert De Nero takes up his role as Paul Vitti again, but this time he's in jail for crimes he committed with the Mafia. He's worried that inside he will be killed - so he starts acting up. Dr Ben Sobel (Billy Crystal) is called in to help him, and the best they can do is have him put into his custody - but will Vitti really survive in the real world? Can he keep straight just long enough to keep the parole board happy?

This film is quite funny, but at times it's not as good as the first movie, especially the making of a TV show he does with Santiago. Lisa Kudrow is excellent as Ben's wife and really shines - which she has done since the end of Friends. Really the hit of Crystal and De Nero really make this work, their good cop bad cop routine is quite funny, and they interact like friends - rather than the doctor/patient routine. De Nero is funnier than I expected, as he's always been cast as the serious gangster or psycho - and now he's got these funny roles which I don't really think will jeopardise his career as he's got such a CV now.

Well worth renting.

As a mafia movie fan this was recommended to me by my psychology lecturer. this is in theory part 2 as the first movie is called Analyze This (which i have also bought) Also if you're a fan of Robert Di Nero then this is the film for you my friend

The Godfather was never like this. Robert De Niro displays his great ability yet again - and the other actors don't do too badly either.

The only reason I watched this inept parody of the Mob movie was because of the legend that is Robert De Niro. He is the one star of my review title that raises it to two stars instead of one. (are you still with me?)

I recall a time when Billy Crystal was quite fresh and entertaining, but his decline seems to have been in tandem with growing that awful frizzy beard of his - on display here in all its hideous glory. He must surely be good friends with Steve Martin and Robin Williams, whose careers have seen similarly-timed nose-dives.

And then we come to De Niro. Basically, he hasn't made a great film since the early-to-mid nineties, though 'Meet The Family/Fockers' does prove - unlike this - that given the script he can be genuinely funny, as was demonstrated in the very underrated 'King Of Comedy'.

So, is there any point in this film (or "films", if you have the double DVD)? Not really. If you want to see something starring Robert De Niro that makes you chortle there are better alternatives. If you are a fan of Billy Crystal... why?
