Consensus: Analyze This is a satisfying comedy with great performances by De Niro and Crystal.

Andrew Sarris
New York Observer

[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.

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.

The whole thing is very light and occasionally hilarious, but it's hardly a new idea.

Thanks to three very strong writers...and the willpower of its leads, Analyze This turns out to be an amusing piffle. [Blu-ray]

It's a treat to watch Robert De Niro -- the goodfella supreme -- tweak every gangster role he's ever played.


It all ends in a hail of bullets and profanities -- but the laughs keep coming.

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