Ben Sobol, Psychiatrist, has a few problems: His son spies on his patients when they open up their heart, his parents don't want to attend his upcoming wedding and his patients' problems don't challenge him at all. Paul Vitti, Godfather, has a few problems as well: Sudden anxiety attacks in public, a certain disability to kill people and his best part ceasing service when needed. One day, Ben unfortunately crashes into one of Vitti's cars. The exchange of Ben's business card is followed by a business visit of Don Paul Vitti himself, who wants to be free of inner conflict within two weeks, before all the Mafia Dons meet. Now, Ben Sobol feels somewhat challenged, as his wedding is soon, his only patient keeps him busy by regarding Ben's duty as a 24 hour standby and the feds keep forcing him to spy on Paul Vitti. And how do you treat a patient who usually solves problems with a gun? Written by

Every restaurant interior in the movie was the site of a gangland hit, with the exception of Sparks' Steakhouse, where the hit took place outside. See more »
Prior to the guy falling from the hotel window, there is a lot of gunplay with the guy chasing Jelly and Jimmy down a short hallway in Vitti's suite. As they pass the hall closet, there is a wire visible that pulls the closet open. See more »
Dr. Ben Sobel:
Dad, you're not coming to my wedding?
Dr. Isaac Sobel:
We wanna be there, but I've got three book signings next weekend. I can't piss off these big bookstores! If I cancel, they stick me down on the bottom shelves. That's the way they are.
Dr. Ben Sobel:
I know, that's the word on the street. Barnes is okay, but that Noble is a vindictive prick.

I enjoyed this much more than I expected to. DeNiro hasn't had a part this good in years, and he plays it to the hilt. It will remind you why you liked him in the first place. Billy Crystal is just as good, but it DeNiro's movie all the way. Your life will not be changed by watching this, but you will enjoy it.
