Analyze This (but don't pay for it)
A review of Analyze This
by J. D. Rummel

Analyze This is less than the sum of its parts, one of those projects where lots of talented people make a less than inspired movie. Because it's directed and co-written by Harold Ramis (Caddy Shack) and stars Robert DeNiro and Billy Crystal, you would think there would be some cool stuff going on, but Analyze This falls far short of being a good movie. It is a tired film that feeds heavily on the sheer power of the two leads, but they cannot carry this off with a few solid and occasionally inspired moments.

Buy Movie at With such talented men involved, the film does make an audience laugh, but one finds one's self thinking, this should be funnier, better. Crystal is likable and believable as a second generation psycho-therapist who ends up with the Don as his patient. DeNiro performs magnificently as the crime boss who finds himself newly confronted with panic attacks and crying jags and decides to consult a shrink. The movie has several funny bits as DeNiro enters into therapy ("You turn me into a fag and I'll kill ya") but is stunningly uneven in providing good material. Lisa Kudrow is completely wasted as Crystal's bride-to-be and who did her eye make-up? She should sue the kid who colored outside the lines on her face. That I'm checking out her eye-shadow should be the final clue in how uninteresting this film is.
