More than a high concept stretched to feature length. This is a funny and extremely satisfying comedy, the best in a while.

Entertainment Weekly
Crystal turns in his best (read: least sappy) performance in ages, getting through an entire movie -- most of it, anyway -- without mugging.

Rolling Stone
Watching De Niro take Paul through his first panic attack ("I'm crying like a woman") is an unalloyed joy.

Chicago Sun-Times
The comedy here isn't all on the surface, and Viterelli [the bodyguard Jelly] is one reason why.

Chicago Tribune
Maybe the problem with Analyze This is that it isn't enough of a Ramis movie. [5 Mar 1999]

It's the most liberated and alive [DeNiro]'s been since his deluded Rupert Pupkin tried to kidnap Jerry Lewis in "King of Comedy."

ReelViews
Frequently funny and occasionally hilarious.

USA Today
Because De Niro's performance is aptly ''Scorsese-aggressive'' while Crystal effectively underplays, one can easily sit through this bottom-line disappointment with a smile painted on, waiting for belly laughs that rarely come. [5 Mar 1999]

Though not much about the film sticks with you, it's a reliable piece of fluff that delivers the goods.

Christian Science Monitor
Ramis doesn't reach the comic heights of his "Groundhog Day," but the acting is excellent and the screenplay offers some hearty laughs if you can stand bursts of violence and language as foul as a Mafioso's business agenda.

Analyze This plays "The Godfather" bit, fast and funny, it just picked a framework it should have refused.
