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
I never thought the original movie "Analyze that" was that much of a winner, but then again it could rely on the talents of the players but here we get nothing but bad actors (even Twin Peaks-queen Sherillyn Fenn is a big dissapointment). The point is that if you decide to make a satire you better do it in a Naked Gun-way (something says that this movie would have been much better if you put Leslie Nielsen in the set) but there was too much trying to make ridiculising things into a real actionmovie (the kidnapping of the psychiater was a very low thing to watch). I am certainly not one of those who think movies have to be that serious (I even enjoyed Hot Shots so...) but they just have to try harder and having more respect for the viewer, so coming up with a better script would be something they can start with.
