Paul Vitti is one of New York's most powerful gangsters. He's grown up in the Mob life and has been well prepared for his future responsibilities by Manetta, his mentor and surrogate father (since his own father was gunned down years before). But when it becomes time for Paul Vitti to assume his role as the leader of his crime family, he suddenly starts having trouble breathing. He can't sleep; he's distant and preoccupied around his wife and kids; his mistress wants to know why his interest in romance has flagged; and his loyal henchmen wonder at his suddenly anxious demeanor.… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[De Niro and Crystal] would seem to be perfectly cast as this oddest of odd couples, but something has gone wrong with the comic chemistry."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"What we learn -- yet again -- is that potentially terrific comedies are often whacked by filmmakers who feel the need to spread a little therapy themselves."
‑ Peter Rainer, New York Magazine/Vulture
"Thanks to three very strong writers...and the willpower of its leads, Analyze This turns out to be an amusing piffle. [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"It's a one-joke movie, but it's an awfully good joke, told here by experts."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"Robert De Niro gets the best out of his performance as the psychologically- challenged gangster."
‑ Robin Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"The comedy is heavy and the use of the stars lazy and cliched..."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"Moments and lines are so perfect that they linger in the mind."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"It all ends in a hail of bullets and profanities -- but the laughs keep coming."
‑ , Film4
"Not since Midnight Run has Mr. De Niro been afforded such a perfect opportunity to flex his comedic muscles."
‑ Joe Lozito, Big Picture Big Sound
"In Midnight Run (1988), De Niro and Charles Grodin made a wonderful team, but the pair in Analyze This doesn't seem to click in the same way."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"What De Niro ends up doing is simply burlesquing himself, much as he would do if he were guest-hosting Saturday Night Live."
‑ Jeff Millar, Houston Chronicle
"It's a treat to watch Robert De Niro -- the goodfella supreme -- tweak every gangster role he's ever played."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Sometimes very funny, but wears its sudden tone swings and flurries of profanities like a pair of cement shoes..."
‑ Mark Halverson, Sacramento News & Review
"Even though it's only March, Analyze This is going to be the comedy to beat this year - nothing else so far has come close."
‑ Garth Franklin, Dark Horizons
"A witty, upbeat comedy that is more concerned with making its audience laugh than any other of its cinematic virtues (or lack thereof)."
‑ Eugene Novikov, Film Blather
