Don Vito Leoni, the Godfather, is clinically depressed. The world has changed and he hasn't. He'd like to retire, but if he left the "family business" to his two idiot sons, they'd be dead in a minute. So he decides to go legit, which convinces everyone that he must be completely off the deep end. To preserve their cushy lives, his dysfuntional family conspires to get him some psycho-therepy. So his boys kidnap a "piasan" shrink and order him to "fix" their father. This film, which premired on Showtime, pre-dated the very similarly plotted "Analyze This" by over a year. Written by
This is another success in the long line of National Lampoon comedies. I don't understand why it didn't go to the theaters, because it was a great addition to the name National Lampoon. It has some of the same plot elements that made "Analyze This" a success. The thought of a mob boss seeking psychiatric help is absurd enough, but the way he and the analyst go through the psycho-analytical process will keep you in stitches.
