    It's no wonder that The Sopranos used it's "Mobster goes to a shrink" plot device for dramatic effect, as a comedy it's a little one note.

    Crystal and De Niro make a very funny duo and become an unique satira of Mafia films.

    Analyze This is a great comedy from director Harold Ramis. Brilliantly acted with a good plot, Analyze This is a unique comedy that is very funny and Robert De Niro lampoons perfectly his previous gangster roles in this film. The films cast keeps involved and every actor gives a great performance. The jokes were great, and it's just funny to see De Niro in his role. I like these types of comedies that have a smart overtone mixed with the humor. Harold Ramis succeeds at doing that very well. This is one of his most original films, and for viewers looking for a different type of comedy, this film is for you. This is just a great film to watch if you want good comedic delivery. Unfortunately they made an awful sequel that was completely unnecessary, but if you only stick with this film, you shouldn't be disappointed. This a great film worth watching, even if the sequel is bad. Avoid the sequel, but watch this one. Harold Ramis delivers a great film that is smart, witty, well crafted and memorable. If you love a comedic take on a mafia boss, this is that film to watch and is far better than Mafia! This was a different type of film for De Niro and he pulled off beautifully. Ramis directs a great film that is almost perfect and he makes a must see comedy with a great cast of varied talent that pull off something special on-screen. Analyze This is definitely a must see comedy that Ramis fans will surely enjoy. Robert De Niro's performance alone makes this a film worth seeing.

    Funny character film. The great character actor team-up of De Niro and Crystal pays off. The film has so much energy and it almost maintains it until the finale. The film won't appeal to everybody, but if you have seen endless mob related films, this will have you in stitches. It's nice to see filmmaker Ramis returning to form after a string of critically unsuccessful films. He showcases how you can do the basics right with a simplistic, but story driven focus. There are so many character actors in this film and it's refreshing to see them share the screen with the two leads. The only issue with this film is the attempt to create a franchise with the sequel. This is a one-off film and it is hilarious at times. It's the little moments that work, not the forced conclusion or the inevitable sequel, that's a formality after surprising box office. 03/12/2019
