Everyone's favorite neurotic mafia boss (with the possible exception of Tony Soprano) is out of prison and back on the couch in this sequel to the hit comedy Analyze This. Ever since he ended up behind bars, mob leader Paul Vitti (Robert De Niro) has been in sad shape, alternately weeping like a child and singing favorite tunes from West Side Story. Fearful of his emotional stability, prison officials release Vitti into the custody of his psychiatrist, Dr. Ben Sobel (Billy Crystal), but this is far more responsibility than Sobel wants -- he's having troubles with his family after the… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"I can analyze this movie in three words: Thumbs Friggin' Down."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Feels unnecessary."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"Amusing mob comedy for older teens only."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"No longer has the elements of surprise and novelty in its favor."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"While it's fun to see DeNiro poke fun at the image that he's helped make so famous, the film just doesn't have enough of a storyline to keep your interest"
‑ Vanessa Sibbald,
"thin, flat and largely forgettable, as De Niro and Crystal trudge through with all the enthusiasm of John Madden at a salad bar."
‑ Bill Muller, Arizona Republic
"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."
‑ Bruce Newman, San Jose Mercury News
"More than any other Robert De Niro film, invites the speculation that the once-revered actor has become the gimmicky comic screenwriter's whipping boy. [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"A marginally diverting, fun way to spend a couple of hours, and you even get to hear De Niro and Crystal duet on tunes from 'West Side Story.'"
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"And the winner of the most Disappointing Sequel of 2002 Award goes to Analyze That."
‑ Scott Nash, Three Movie Buffs
"An offer we can most definitely refuse."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"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."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"The end credit outtake reel feels like a desperate bid to rescue the dud ending and make the moviegoers leave with a smile."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Aren't we all just a little tired of De Niro's clownish schtick and Crystal as his nattering sidekick?"
‑ Judith Egerton, Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)
"The jokes are often one-note and not pushed to their limit."
‑ Terri Clark, Apollo Guide
