A spoof of buddy cop movies where two very different cops are forced to team up on a new reality based television cop show, while tracking down the manufacturer and distributor of an illegally made semi-automatic firearm.
The mafia's Paul Vitti is back in prison and will need some serious counseling when he gets out. Naturally, he returns to his analyst Dr. Ben Sobel for help and finds that Sobel needs some serious help himself as he has inherited the family practice, as well as an excess stock of stress.Written by
Anthony LaPaglia plays true to life in this movie. He and his brother Jonathan are Australian-born actors of Italian descent, and Anthony has received flack over the years for portraying Italian-American characters, since he is from Australia. See more »
When Dr. Sobel first meets Viti in jail, you can see what looks like a car's taillights outside of the cell's window. They suddenly vanish between shots. See more »
How did he know about the money? And how did he know that Tony Cisco got popped? We didn't find out about it till this morning.

Some great laughs, but not as good as the original. Worth seeing, though...
As sequels go, this was above average. Which translates into a so-so+ movie. I gave it a 7 out of 10, instead of a 5 or a 6, because there ARE some great laughs in it. Although it pains me to say it, overall, as a movie, "Analyze That" was a bit flaccid, a bit pale, and certainly not as good as the original. It seemed tired and faded, somehow--- kind of like the recent "Men in Black II" sequel to MIB. However, if you are a Billy Crystal-hitting-old-age fan, and if you are a Robert DiNiro fan (and who isn't???--- and if you are gracious enough to be willing to be entertained for a couple of hours, go see it. You'll probably have a pleasant evening!
