Storyline

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 Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>

Trivia

Originally, the scene in which the couple is discussing their problems in bed with Dr. Sobel (Billy Crystal) was supposed to include only the woman and Dr. Sobel, but Crystal thought it would be funnier if the two of them were present. The man playing the husband is the head of the sound department for the movie, Les Lazarowitz, who being a heavyset guy made the scene even more comical. He deferred the sound mixing duties to his assistant while this scene was being filmed. Coincidentally, Lazarowitz was the boom operator (uncredited) in the fruit stand scene of The Godfather (1972), which is parodied in Analyze This (1999). See more »

Goofs

Jelly and then the Doctor say 'consiglieri' meaning the doctor's would-be position in Vitti's family. However, the correct form would be 'consigliere' that is an advisor in Italian. The word 'consiglieri' is the plural from 'consigliere'. See more »

Quotes

Boss Paul Vitti: I can feel the juices rushing back to my balls as we speak.
Dr. Ben Sobel: Well, that's something I never thought I'd hear another man say to me.

User Reviews

 
Excellent comedy, excellent cast
26 November 1999 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

The charm of this movie is in the concept and perfect casting. Robert De Niro satirizes his past performances as a Mafia boss. And Billy Crystal as the unwitting psychiatrist who gets involved in the mess. It's truly funny and entertaining. The movie mostly benefits from very good direction by Harold Ramis and excellent performance by the actors and not just De Niro and Crystal.

The verdict: 4 of 5 stars.
