  1. The outtakes prove Analyze That could have been even worse.
  2. 30
    All the principals -- except, significantly, screenwriter Kenneth Lonergan -- reprised their roles for the sequel, and all seem confused as to why they returned.
  3. Although there is the germ of a very sharp comedy in the intersection of real mobsters and make-believe thugs in a Hollywood mob comedy, Analyze That is far too lazy to do much with it.

    The novelty value is completely gone the second time around.
  5. Stuck in that no man's land between comedy and banal movie mob action, and it delivers on neither of these impulses with any force.
  6. Let's look at the bright side. If this movie bombs as it deserves to, we won't have to sit through "Analyze Those" a few years from now!
  7. 25
    Shapeless, sloppy, badly paced mess.

    That this witless, formulaic sequel to the hit comedy Analyze This even dares to spoof ''The Sopranos'' is embarrassing. It's like Freddie Prinze Jr. slamming Gene Hackman as a bad actor.

    The annoying Reg Rogers, on the other hand, who plays Little Caesar creator Raoul Berman, delivers his lines like a stoned Pee-wee Herman, and the scene in which Billy Crystal mutters and drools in a restaurant is just disturbing for anyone who admired his work in the past.
  10. Director Harold Ramis and his cast fetch overchewed shticks, but what's surprising is the incompetent witlessness on exhibit. There's no limit to the botched comedy rhythms and wasted opportunities.
  11. So dull and awful, you actually wonder if this is some kind of Andy Kaufmanesque in-joke, a deliberate attempt to douse the spark that made the original film so enjoyable.

    Crystal & De Niro return to reprise their roles of psychiatrist & mob boss. Has one of the rare things of being better than the original. Much more laughs & the scenes with Paul Vitti in his new jobs are brilliant. Full Review »
