It's no great classic, but it is one thing: FUNNY. Watch it.

Really, really funny. DeNiro is hysterical and so Billy Crystal. A must-see for any fan of mob movies.

At times, it may come pretty close to settling into a familiar sitcom, but it follows it up with two more hillarious moments. Crystal and De Niro set up chemisty like few others we've seen, let alone in a comedy.

Crystal as a comedian is a natural in the clinical world. Entertaining button-pusher requiring minimal thought. Falls apart towards the end trying to maintain its premise.

What a waste of time this overly praised claptrap is. If there's any genuine humor to be found here, I'm afraid it eluded me. Every now and then DeNiro and Crystal stop playing DeNiro and Crystal. Alas, this is not one of those times.

Robert De Niro hams it up as a gang boss with a few in jokes here & there. Nice to see him taking the piss out of himself.
Billy Crystal plays the straight man &, despite it being a bit weak at the end, a pretty funny film.

In remembrance of the late writer-director Harold Ramis, whose GROUNDHOG DAY (1993, 9/10) is one of my all-time favorite comedies, ANALYZE THIS is another hoot although actually it is the brainchild of De Niro and Crystal, a farcical pasticheIn remembrance of the late writer-director Harold Ramis, whose GROUNDHOG DAY (1993, 9/10) is one of my all-time favorite comedies, ANALYZE THIS is another hoot although actually it is the brainchild of De Niro and Crystal, a farcical pastiche of De Niro's classic mafia mien (from THE GODFATHER: PART II 1974 to GOODFELLAS 1990, 9/10 and CASINO 1995, 7/10), he plays Paul Vitti, the notorious mobster boss, survives an assassination from his rival Primo (Palminteri) lately but horrified to find out his masculinity has been chipped away by certain panic attacks, he becomes a gun-shy and over-sentimental cry-baby, what's more vexing, his bed performance is effected as well. Therefore in order to solve the crisis, he visits a shrink, Dr. Ben Sobel (Chrystal), for treatment.

You'd think that a project featuring such names as "De Niro," "Crystal," and "Ramis" wouldn't possess such a glaring deficit of genuine laughs.

But, somehow, "Analyze This" defies the odds, delivering the audience a plateful of undercooked and underseasoned jokes, fueled by half-hearted performances and a truly lame third act. I honestly expected so much more. Expand

One of the first and best of Robert De Niro's self parody performances. Not exactly hysterical, but very funny without a doubt. Strangely De Niro provides most of the laughs instead of the comedian Billy Crystal. However one of the mobstersOne of the first and best of Robert De Niro's self parody performances. Not exactly hysterical, but very funny without a doubt. Strangely De Niro provides most of the laughs instead of the comedian Billy Crystal. However one of the mobsters henchmen named Jelly is the most likable and entertaining of the whole cast. I wish the actor Joe Viterelli appeared in more movies so that he might be more well known, he is strangely funny without telling many jokes. Some scenes were unfortunately laugh free, Lisa Kudrow's character seriously reminds me of Skyler from Breaking Bad, all she ever does is moan and spoil Crystal's characters fun. A very entertaining, but no more than satisfactory comedy which will definitely make you laugh but not a great deal Expand

Analyze this is as funny as Meet The Parents. Deniro parodies himself again, he mocks his mafia image
and the result are brilliant and hilarious. Crystal is also very funny as his shrink who is coerced into
treating him.

DeNiro can't get any funnier. Joe Viterelli adds so much to every scene and Billy Crystal is Billy Crystal. Fun to watch over and over. When Paul Vitti shoots the pillow ... it is just plain f unny.

Analyze This is hilarious thanks to the actors. The movie has impressive action scenes and is a clever
parody of the mafia crime genre. Anyone who likes crime and comedy movies will love this movie. The movie
balances the crime and comedy
