Yep, it streaks with bumpy and rough romps for raunchy laughs.
2 December 2002 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

This sequel of the 1999 mob comedy "Analyze This" has plenty to keep the viewers laughing, bemused, and sometimes shocked. It's no longer a tale of a sweet psychiatrist keeping a mafia don sober. On the contrary, it's the gangster who's showing his shrink the reality of the tough side to every human soul. Guess who's expected to be lying on the psychiatric couch? Yep, this film offers a fun ride to the psychology of the shrink! And it makes no apologies for pumping up enough guffaws to keep one's throat sore. It may not be the comedy for the puritanical grandmas and grand-papas, but face it, it's gangland - foul-mouthed, and rude gestures, vulgarities, et. al. Yep, Director Harold Ramis can't be accused of not injecting new flavor and spice to this sequel's characters! Nope, there's no way one can complain that it has the same old jokes. De Niro and Billy Crystal, and a cast of amusing actors are offering a new outlook on mob life and it's influence. There are demons lurking in every mind; there is the identity crisis to consider - even with the good, old professional folks.

Just observe Paul Vitti's 'manic-catatonic' stupor. I don't mind paying the regular price of a tix just to watch De Niro's facial expressions. I'm not sure whether you'd ever listen to 'West Side Story' without a smile, after watching this flick. Concentrate on how Dr. Ben Sobel entices him to respond to the psychiatric tests. The are great moments in this film. This comedy does work with the characters' new images. This is one hoity-toity hokum - out to spin laughs.
