February 18, 2003
There's more life in a mortuary than in Harold Ramis' laboured direction, the script creaks through 95 minutes as if they were 180, with no joke too obvious, cheap, or derivative.

I can analyze this movie in three words: Thumbs Friggin' Down.
December 6, 2002
thin, flat and largely forgettable, as De Niro and Crystal trudge through with all the enthusiasm of John Madden at a salad bar.
December 6, 2002
An offer we can most definitely refuse.
December 6, 2002
Feels unnecessary.
December 6, 2002
Where the first movie struck just the right tone, blending anxiety attacks with machine-gun attacks to come up with a comic La Cosa Neurosis, this picture consistently goes too far in all directions.
December 6, 2002
Audiences who loved Analyze This may have to see the new movie to believe just how empty it is. What they'll find is a profound difference between This and That.
December 6, 2002
Plays like the sort of phone-it-in sequel that's patched together mainly to further enrich the people who made the original.
December 6, 2002
Little more than a mildly amusing retread.
December 6, 2002
Your response to its new sequel, Analyze That, may hinge on what you thought of the first film.
December 6, 2002
Although the level of the comedy declines as the movie proceeds, there's no denying the fun of watching De Niro and Crystal having fun.
December 6, 2002
Just a collection of this and that -- whatever fills time -- with no unified whole.
December 6, 2002
What we get in Analyze That are several talented actors delivering their familiar screen personas in the service of an idiotic plot.
December 6, 2002
Some of this might fly if there were a script, any script, but under the direction of Harold Ramis, the supporting cast mills about aimlessly while the two stars shoot potty-mouth improvisations at each other.
December 6, 2002
Dull and awful.
December 6, 2002
While Analyze That can't re-create the freshness of the first film, writers Peter Tolan, Peter Steinfeld and director Harold Ramis ... have come up with a couple of bits that may inspire you to snort-laugh, though you'll feel guilty about it later.
December 6, 2002
Wasting Robert De Niro and Billy Crystal's talent and too much of our time.
December 6, 2002
Patient suffers from serious delusions of humour and a desire to cash in on previously successful strategies.
December 6, 2002
A loose-jointed series of skits, laced with running jokes that poke mild fun at mob movie clichs and therapeutic psychobabble.
December 6, 2002
It's sad to think this shapeless, sloppy, badly paced mess was directed by Ramis, who helmed one of the smartest films of the past 15 years, Groundhog Day.
