More Details

Synopsis:
Mob boss Paul Vitti (Robert De Niro) is having heart attacks. At least that's what he thinks. When his doctors inform him that he is suffering from anxiety attacks, he is forced to track down a shrink to help him get to the bottom of the problem. Billy Crystal costars as neurotic psychiatrist Ben Sobol, who is manipulated into treating the macho Mafia man, with hysterical results. Just as Ben and eager fiancée (Lisa Kudrow) are about to enter nuptial bliss, they are suddenly faced with a 24-hour responsibility to a mobster who won't take no for an answer. The hilarious hijinks ruin their first wedding and threaten to ruin the relationship as Paul battles his personal demons with the help of the initially unwilling shrink. As the two men's professional and private worlds collide, they are forced to realize their similarities as they join forces to battle the FBI and the impending threat of a Mafia takeover. Director Harold Ramis has crafter an intelligent, witty comedy that shows off the comic instincts of De Niro as never before.

Notes:
"When I got into family therapy this was not the kind of 'family' I had in mind."--Dr. Ben Sobol (Billy Crystal) "What is my goal here, to make you a happy, well-adjusted gangster?"--Dr. Ben Sobol

Reviews:
"...[ANALYZE THIS] has a good, profane edge that's never abrasive..." - 09/??/1999 Sight and Sound, p.40-1


"...A sharp, darkly hilarious peek at mobster mentality..." - 10/01/1999 Total Film, p.88


"...A funny title, an even funnier premise and inspired odd-couple casting that's enough to prompt laughter just on the basis of the two-shots in its ad campaign. Think of it as an offer you can't refuse..." - 03/05/1999 New York Times, p.E12


"...DeNiro's performance is aptly 'Scorsese-aggressive' while Crystal effectively underplays..." - 03/05/1999 USA Today, p.6E


"...ANALYZE this has Robert De Niro and Billy Crystal to bring richness to the characters....[Crystal] wisely restrains his manic side, and gets into a nice rhythm with De Niro's fearful gangster..." - 03/05/1999 Chicago Sun-Times, p.31
