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
Kevin Pollak plays Billy Crystal's role from ANALYZE THIS (1999) in THE DON'S ANALYST (1997), a film that (surprisingly) came out two years before ANALYZE THIS and yet is much, much worse, using the same concept to ill effect.
Robert Loggia is no Robert De Niro and Pollak does his best to act funny. But this movie just isn't funny. It uses the same premise as ANALYZE THIS with 1/16 of the laughs. Instead, it's a crude, stupid made-for-TV National Lampoon movie that isn't quite as hideous as GOLF PUNKS but still a movie that I wouldn't ever want to see again.
Compared to some other comedies by National Lampoon this is OK but compared to *most* movies it's one of the worst I've ever seen. A full turkey for this.
