OUCH, THAT WAS EMBARRASSING,
This review is from: 44 Inch Chest [DVD]  (DVD)
Here's a novel idea: Macho mafioso has emotional breakdown, bearing his sensitive side. It makes the storyline for Analyze This/That look like genius. It's the British version of such a concept (like Johnny English of Austin Powers, like Shaun of the Dead of Zombieland, etc, etc), only you get a handful of men sitting in a room mouthing off.
About the mouthing off. It's the movie's centerpiece. It's the meat & potatoes of the dialogue. It's what you do when you have no, well, real dialogue. "Eff this!" and "Eff that!", all delivered with the slurpy gusto only London mafiosi could muster. It's embarrassing too -- these older actor chaps reduced to such juvenile strategies to keep the film from coming to a complete standstill. It's called 'impress by profanity' and teenager culture around the globe thrives on it.
Well, folks, that's what this flick has to offer: no scipt and a tired old gimmick to cover up the fact. Where's Billy Crystal when you need him!?!

You actually want to see a film that has Billy Crystal in it? Oh dear. You have my sympathy.
